The RSPCA is appealing for foster carers to help rescue abandoned cats and dogs.

The number of unwanted animals has reached crisis levels and the Centre is full to bursting, but local fosterers allow the Centre to take in additional kittens, cats, puppies and dogs.

Fosterers provide TLC and help the animals to restore their faith in humans, so when they return to the RSPCA animal centre on the Great North Road, Bawtry, they are ready to find their new forever home.

“We are looking for people who are passionate about animals for our special cats or dogs,” said South Yorkshire Animal Centre Co-ordinator Laura Bullock.

“Fostering is very rewarding and makes a huge difference for local animals in need.”

Fostering is also flexible and can work around holidays. In addition, the RSPCA pays for food and vet bills.

If you are interested in fostering cats or dogs, ring 01302 719790 between 11am and 4pm any day except Wednesday, for a chat with one of the animal care team.
