Foster Care

**COVID-19 Update**


Our Foster program is now more important than ever. We have been inundated with enquiries from people wanting to help and will try and respond to applications as soon as possible. We thank people for their patience while we work through these queries.  

If you or somebody you know would like to become a foster carer, the best approach is to register your interest below and we will be in touch as soon as we are able. 


Become a foster carer for RSPCA Victoria 

The RSPCA Victoria foster program gives animals who are not yet ready for adoption a chance to live and be loved in foster homes. This exciting program helps to reduce the amount of time animals stay in our Animal Care Centres and provides us with valuable information from foster families to help prepare animals for adoption. Fostering is an incredibly rewarding experience and directly improves the lives of animals.


Click on the RSPCA Victoria site you wish to foster from under “Foster Orientations” to complete the volunteer application form and register your interest to attend one of our orientation sessions.


Please note: We require foster carers to be at least 18 years old. If you are not 18, please have a guardian complete the foster care registration form and attend the information session with you.
