Foster a furry friend and liven up your self-isolation.
Looking for love, happiness and an instant mood booster (read: adorable, furry companion) to get you through the latest lockdown?
Providing the rewarding answer you never knew you needed, fostering a furry friend could be exactly what you need, especially if you can’t commit to caring for one indefinitely.
Homeless dogs, puppies, cats, kittens, birds and ‘pocket pets’ arrive in pounds and shelters every day. To get the second chance they deserve, each of these animals desperately needs a foster carer.
Waggin Tails Animal Rescue, a Geelong-based rescue shelter, is currently desperate for doggo foster carers across the Geelong region and Melbourne.
The key takeaways
- This Geelong animal rescue is in need of foster carers for dogs at risk of being put to sleep
- Dogs needed care are from friendly and will suit family homes or homes with other pets, to single dog homes only
- Carers need to be able to get to our vets in Geelong, Lilydale or Lynbrook
An organisation dedicated to breaking out death row pups of all shapes and sizes, unwanted cats/kittens and then providing them with quality health care, stability, rehab and retraining if necessary, their main aim is to provide a safe, happy and supportive environment while their forever home is found.
Taking to social media, the organisation has revealed they are in need of carers for dogs at risk of being put to sleep.
“Dogs needed care are from friendly and will suit family homes or homes with other pets, to single dog homes only.
“There are lots of dogs needing help that will suit different households.”
Depending on the pet you wish to foster, you can welcome an adorable companion into your home temporarily for a few weeks right through to a few months, looking after them and helping them become well-socialised and ready for adoption.
Carers need to be able to get to their designated vets in Geelong, Lilydale or Lynbrook.
They also have dog food donations in Geelong that can be provided to carers.
You can apply to be a foster carer here. If your home is suited for any of the dogs you’ll be contacted!
