What do you do?
Foster animals live in their carers homes, as part of the family, while they wait for adoption. Almost all animals we take into care require vetwork of some form; this includes microchipping, desexing and vaccinations through to surgeries or ongoing medical treatment. Some of our animals require weight gain (or weight loss!), others need training, and some just need loving while they build up their confidence. Foster carers play a vital role throughout this time for their animals.
Our number one priority is getting animals the help they need, and then into the homes they need. Sometimes this can take weeks, and sometimes this can take months. While there are no guarantees how long an animal will be in foster care for, once animals are into their new homes, we like to look after our carers too and make sure everyone gets breaks for the sake of themselves, their families, and their existing pets!
We do ask that existing pets you may have are fully vetworked, and that their flea and worm treatments are kept up-to-date. We are able to offer discounted treatments to our foster carers to help with this.
Fostering is a truly rewarding experience, and while they are tough times, you'll quickly agree that seeing your foster animal in their forever home makes it all worth while! As well as that, you'll build long-lasting relationships with some really passionate people.
What do we do?
Chally Animal Rescue supply all food and supplies for foster animals, and ensure that their flea and worm treatments are always up-to-date. We've got a great network of foster carers with a wealth of knowledge, and are always happy to provide support through our online Facebook group. In addition to this, we also have a dog trainer who is able to complete assessments on more complicated dogs, as well as offer training tips and advice to carers.
We advertise all animals on PetRescue once they are microchipped, and will keep their adds up-to-date. While we are happy to write character profiles on pets, we love it when foster carers send us their own write-ups and photos, as they know the animals best.
We organize and pay for vetwork of animals in care, and wherever possible try to minimise vet appointments inconveniencing foster carers.
