Fostering

Short-term foster care


Some of the animals entering shelters need a little extra help before they are ready for adoption and their new forever homes. They may be too young, unwell, recovering from surgery, or may need training to improve their behaviour. Our foster care program helps these animals recover in a home environment until they’re ready to enter adoption.

If you’re aged over 18 years and have a passion for animal care – you could be the next addition to our foster family! We will provide everything you need including lots of support from our Foster Care Officers. 

Register your interest to attend our information sessions by completing this form and email it to fostercare@rspcavic.org.au, noting the info session that you are interested to attend in the email.
