Foster a pet.
We are diligently buying lotto tickets and hoping to one day have a premises where we can house dogs and cats.... Until then we have our brilliant Foster Program!
The purpose of foster care is to give a temporary home to animals who otherwise wouldn't have one or are at risk of euthanasia. Some pets may be surrendered from private home situations, others may come direct from a vet clinic or pound.
We've found that animals in foster care are much more relaxed, happy and we are better able to assess their personalities and needs. This means we can place them into the most suitable home possible because we know what they're like at their most relaxed!
You need a secure property for dogs - no gaps in the fencing. And the feline species need to be kept strictly inside for their own safety and protection. A secure cat run is always a big hit with our pampered fosters! Ideally you'll also be able to commit to vet trips for routine sterilisation, microchipping and vaccinations or emergencies.
We have generous friends who donate pet food, kitty litter, toys and other pet related items. WA Pet Project shares these items between all our carers however as we do not get funding most carers will usually provide the standard things like food and litter themselves.
Foster caring is, simply put, awesome! You get to see personalities shine, new tricks learned, and sometimes even fears overcome. WA Pet Project is very committed to making this experience as fun and rewarding as possible for you and your family. We have a whole team of experienced members on board to help you with all sorts of things like dog training, behaviour advice and health advice. We will also never place an animal into your care if you do not feel comfortable.
