Foster Carer Application Form

Thank you for applying to be a foster carer. Our preferred criteria for foster carers are:

You live within about an hour of either Cardiff/Newport - this is so we can provide support as needed.

All resident animals MUST be neutered and up to date with vaccinations. If there is a medical reason why this is not possible please include details in your application.

We do not generally place animals in foster homes where there are children under 5 - we will however consider homes with young children as pup foster homes.

Foster dogs should not be left for more than 4 hours a day on a regular basis, 2 hours for pups.

As foster dogs may not be housetrained, upper floor flats are not generally suitable. You will also need a safe, enclosed garden.

Thank you for your support, we will be in touch as soon as we can. If possible, please include a landline number to help keep our costs down.
