The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) has a mission
to promote kindness and prevent cruelty to animals through education, advocacy and action.
The main intention of our Foster Care programme is to save the lives of very young animals whose chances of surviving in a kennel environment (without falling sick) are slim. We save more lives when our fosterers help us take care of young animals. Under our TLC ( tender loving care) programme, we require fosters for animals who have health problems (eg. skin issues), in hopes that these animals can be provided with the necessary care and conducive environment to bring them back to full health. Having an individual volunteer to care for the animal in their own home is a much welcomed alternative to euthanasia. Fostering an animal can be a wonderful bonding experience for you and your family. The rewards are intangible - nothing beats the feeling of saving a life and making a difference.
By helping to foster animals until space becomes available in our shelter and/or the animals are older and better able to cope with kennel life, you are helping us save more lives. The companionship you provide will contribute towards the nurturing of the animal.
To be a foster parent, you need to be 18 years and above. If you are between 18 and 21 years old, a parent/guardian's consent is required.
