When We Need You
From 07/08/2009 onwards
What we look for when assessing a foster carer’s home differs depending on the species they wish to foster. We ask that all foster carers be willing and able to safely keep foster cats indoors and foster dogs on a leash outdoors. You will be contacted by PFSS when there is a need for a home visit in your area, you will contact the potential volunteer and arrange a time for the home visit to take place. We have some standard home visit paperwork that is completed for each foster home.
