Calling animal lovers to foster cats

RSPCA Newport Adoption Center appeals to local animal lovers to foster cats.

A home environment is very beneficial to a cat’s well-being – and the RSPCA has many cats who cannot yet be rehomed and who would benefit from time with a foster family first.

Foster families play a vital role in caring for cats in the care of the RSPCA until they can be rehomed. Young kittens, or pregnant cats, may need to wait a while before they can be rehomed, which means cattery life is less than ideal. Other felines have specific medical or behavioral traits that mean they feel much happier in a family environment.

RSPCA Newport Adoption Center is based at Newport Pets At Home at Mendalgief Retail Park.

Gaynor Smith, Rehoming Coordinator, said: “Adopting a pet is incredibly rewarding and we are looking for new foster parents to help us with the many cats and kittens in our care. These cats include those that may have been neglected and rescued by RSPCA inspection.

“Volunteer foster families provide a vital resource to the RSPCA as they can provide these animals with a calm and loving environment during their rehabilitation and help improve their chances of finding a new, permanent and loving home.”

Foster families providing temporary accommodation for cats or kittens will be responsible for their feeding, cleaning, grooming and interaction. Full training will be provided and food will be provided along with veterinary care.

“We would love to hear from anyone interested in joining our team of promotional volunteers,” added Gaynor.
