Job description

Volunteer Pregnant or Nursing Cat Foster Carer

Sick, injured and homeless pets have relied on Blue Cross for help since 1897. Each year, thousands of dogs, cats, small pets and horses turn to the charity’s animal hospitals, clinics and rehoming services for treatment and support. Our shops help to raise vital income for our charity and all profits go to helping more pets in need.

Our Volunteer Pregnant or Nursing Cat Foster Carer provide support and a peaceful setting for pregnant or nursing female cats away from the busy Rehoming Centre.

We would love you to join us and help us help more pets in need

You’ll learn new skills and gain valuable practical experience for your CV.

Fostering pregnant or nursing cats requires a time commitment of around 3 months or more. You will have full support of Centre staff including a Veterinary Supervisor (who will conduct home visits periodically) for the duration of your foster period.

The role of a Volunteer Pregnant or Nursing Cat Foster Carer

Tasks include:

  • Supporting cats who might be about to give birth, or have recently given birth, and are nursing their young kittens
  • Providing all the care they need – feeding, exercising, weaning, cleaning, socialising, giving medication and grooming
  • Collecting or dropping your animal/s back to the Centre during opening hours
  • Keeping in regular contact with the centre with accurate record keeping and monitoring your foster cat closely

Criteria required for the role of Volunteer Pregnant or Nursing Cat Foster Carer

You will need:

  • Previous experience of helping cats to deliver kittens and caring for kittens
  • You need to live within 30 minutes of both the Bromsgrove Rehoming Centre and the centre's out-of-hours vet service based at Smethwick
  • You will need your own car to transport foster cats to and from the Centre or Vet
  • A quiet, reasonable size spare room with minimal furniture to act as a delivery room/nursery for your foster cat
  • Have a home with no other pets or very young children
  • Be home for most of the day to monitor your foster cats regularly
  • The use of video technology such as Teams or Zoom to communicate with the Centre when needed
  • Willingness to learn and follow Blue Cross procedures
  • Minimum age requirement: 18 years

Why volunteer?

  • You’ll be helping cats to have happy, healthy lives
  • You’ll be able to enjoy caring for a cat without a long term commitment
  • You’ll gain practical skills, experience and a training programme
  • You’ll develop skills and enhance your CV
  • You’ll join a great team of like-minded people
  • You’ll be provided with all the equipment needed and costs covered

We would love you to join us and help us help more pets in need.
