Become a Foster Carer

Become a Foster Carer

Are you passionate about helping those in need in your community? Join The Cat Protection Society of Victoria as a Foster Carer and experience the rewarding opportunity of nurturing vulnerable cats and kittens until they find their forever homes.

Our Foster Care program is essential to our shelter, allowing us to help more cats and kittens each year and ensure they receive the necessary socialization and care before adoption. Some cats require extra time and attention due to age, illness, or behaviour issues, and fostering provides them with the support they need to thrive.

As a Foster Carer, you’ll play a vital role in providing a loving home environment for these animals during their recovery and development. We provide comprehensive support, including veterinary care, food, litter, bedding, bowls, and toys—all you need to provide is the nurturing home.

Browse the profiles of cats and kittens currently in need of foster care to learn more about them and the duration of care required. Your commitment can make a real difference in the lives of these animals.
