Many of the animals that come into the SPCA Auckland Animal Village need additional care, treatment and socialisation before finding their new forever home. Our volunteer foster parents provide a temporary home for these animals and help them recover from surgery, give them medicine for an illness, or work with them to improve their behaviour.
We need foster parents to provide temporary homes for cats, dogs, rabbits, guinea pigs and farm animals year-round, but our greatest need for cat fosterers is during the busy summer months.
**Please note, we are not currently taking any new applications for Foster Parents. However, we should be opening these up again in May. Please keep this page bookmarked! We will update it when applications are open again.**
