Before applying to be a Battersea Foster Carer please ensure you read through the attached Role Description and Cat Fostering FAQs to make sure this is the right volunteer role for you.

Becoming a cat Foster Carer means you are providing invaluable support in caring for lost, abandoned and unwanted adult cats and kittens by preparing them for their new homes. Fostering is an incredibly rewarding experience and a chance to make a real difference to cats who might be struggling in a cattery environment.

All our Foster Carers need to be compassionate, empathetic and adaptable to the needs of the individual animals that come through their care, as they are all unique. You must be willing to provide all the basics of care, such as feeding, cleaning, exercising (dogs), training, playing and socialising, and be willing to follow our guidance and regulations on training and safety.

We are dedicated to providing reasonable adjustments and alleviating any stress during the recruitment process for those with physical and neuro diversities, whether this is adjusting environments, sensory preferences, answering questions or adapting communication styles. If you require adaptive support with your application, please email fosteringinfo@battersea.org.uk. Any declaration of any disabilities or differences will be treated confidentially and compassionately.
