Could you provide some pets with a place to rest their paws while they wait for their forever home?
These poorly cats and many other abandoned and unwanted animals are in search of some love until they’re healthy enough for permanent re-homing.
And with many of the cats on medication or in isolation, they are desperate for some attention in a safe and caring temporary home.
Claire Feek, animal care manager at the RSPCA branch on Barrack Street, Norwich, said sick animals couldn’t be vaccinated and re-homed until they’re off medication, and are in desperate need of some one-to-one care.
She said: “Some of them will need fattening up until they’re in a condition to go home.”
Fosterers don’t need any specialist knowledge, just a bit of time to spoil a pet in need of love.
Miss Feek said: “We really want people who are able to spend quality time with the animals they are fostering and to be able to drive in case a vet appointment is needed. The most important attribute we are looking for is people who want to help these needy animals get well so that they can find the new homes that they deserve.”
The charity is also searching for fosterers for rabbits, guinea pigs and other small animals.
