Become a Cat Fosterer

Giving your time to support Rain Rescue is one of the most valuable, rewarding and fun ways to help us do more for the animals in our care.

By becoming a fosterer you’re offering a wonderful temporary residence to a homeless pet in our care. Meaning not only are you showing love to one pet in need, but you’re also making it possible for Rain Rescue to help another by freeing up a space at our rescue centre. Not to mention giving us the opportunity to see how your foster cat or dog behave in a domestic environment, so we can find them the home most suited to their needs.
