VOLUNTEER WITH HAPPY TAILS

FOSTERING

It’s impossible to talk about our volunteers without acknowledging our wonderful foster carers!

Foster carers are at the very heart of our organisation. We don’t have any kennels or holding facilities for our animals, so we rely entirely on our foster carers to continue saving lives.

Foster carers welcome rescued animals into their homes and care for them as if they were their own. They provide lots of love and, of course, a place to call home while the animal waits for their furever family.

Many people choose to become foster carers when they love animals, but can’t commit to looking after one long term. Others just like knowing that they are saving lives. Does this sound like you?

Want to help but unable to foster an animal? We are always looking for volunteers to help in the following ways:

 

Home Checks

All foster carers require a home inspection by an approved volunteer. This involves a visit to check where our animals will be staying while in foster care, and completing an online checklist with your recommendations.

Transport

This can be a short trip from the pound to the foster carer, a trip to the vet for their appointment or collecting animals from private surrender homes.

Events

Our fundraising events can only happen with volunteers. Roles on the day include set up, transport help, BBQing, selling raffle tickets/merchandise/chocolates, dog/cat babysitter, conversationalist and pack up.

Fundraising

This role involves behind the scenes organising of fundraising events and opportunities. If you have the ideas and connections, we would love to hear from you.

Photography

Photos play a key role in our animals getting adopted. Join our team of volunteer photographers who take amazing photos for adoption profiles and promotions.

Other?

Have another skill? We’d love to hear how you can help!

If you would like to volunteer, please do not hesitate to contact us!
