FOSTER HOME NEEDED!!
Sweetie was found as a stray was very skinny when she first came to us. On arrival she appeared to be very friendly and loves a cuddle. It was soon found that Sweetie's kidneys do not work properly. Sweetie is looking for a sofa to cuddle up on and lots of love and attention. She is an older lady in her prime probably best suited to a quieter household, where she can enjoy the quiet life for the remainder of her days. If homed with children, they would need to be gentle and considerate of her situation - the staff will assess suitability. Sweetie would prefer for the household not to be too busy, but she could potentially live with another gentle cat for companionship.

For animals that have been diagnosed with a poor prognosis, we make every effort to place them in a foster home to improve their quality of life, where they can live out their days in the comfort of a loving home.

As time often isn't on their side, the sooner we can do this the better. Sadly, due to their age or health, these animals would struggle to find a home through the standard adoption route.

As a foster animal, the cost of their veterinary treatment is covered by our "Pensioners scheme" which is funded from monies raised by our volunteer Friends of RSPCA Southridge charity. Veterinary check-ups take place at the centre or Wood Street Veterinary Hospital in High Barnet, so for convenience, fosterers need to live locally.

Currently we are short of new foster homes for cats, especially ones without existing pets, as some of them are not keen on other animals and would like to be the only pet, or for medical reasons need to be the only cat. Often our foster cats need to be given medication, so experience may be required.

Fostering is hugely rewarding, and often we find that our foster animals gain a new lease of life in a home environment rather than in the cattery.

It goes without saying that you need a big heart to be a fosterer as inevitably there will come a time when the animal passes away. Nevertheless our fosterers can take comfort in that they have provided a loving home to an animal who was in particular need of one, and that is what makes it worthwhile.

If you are interested in applying to be a fosterer we would love to hear from you.
