When We Need You
From 10/01/2012 onwards
Pet Fostering Service Scotland are seeking pet foster carers, the majority of our fostering requests are for cats and dogs.
Foster carers make a huge difference to pets and owners who are in emergencies. They are responsible for meeting the daily needs of pets in their care, including feeding, cleaning, grooming and exercising until the pet is returned to its owner. Pet costs, such as food and veterinary fees are met by the owner.
