Foster Care Volunteer - Cat/Kitten

At this time, we are seeking fosters who can care for adult cats and/or kittens. This kind of fostering requires a room specifically set aside for the animal with access to natural light and hard flooring. 

Whether an animal is injured, abandoned, or underage, foster care saves lives. Many animals needing remediation or a space to stay if the shelter is full benefit from a foster home.

Foster Care volunteers are guardian angels to thousands of BC SPCA animals in need. Whether an animal is injured, abandoned, or underage, foster care saves lives. Many animals needing remediation or a space to stay if the shelter is full benefit from a foster home.
