Gildersome is  looking for volunteers to foster for us. This may be for an adult cat who needs bringing out of their shell or kittens with or without mum who need socialising.

If you think you can help or would like to find out more about fostering, please contact gildersome@cats.org.uk. To foster for the Gildersome Homing centre you need a spare room and you must be able to drive!

In the following video, Indoor Fosterer, Jane Marescaux and her pet cat will tell you more about fostering...

*Please note Jane is being videoed in her living room, this room is not used for fostering CP cats.

 If interested in becoming a much needed fosterer please contact gildersome@cats.org.uk to find out if you are suitable to foster for the branch.

A lovely kitten that needed fostering

Fosterer Volunteer

Across the UK many of our feline friends are cared for by volunteer fosterers who provide a stable, safe and loving environment in their homes or in purpose built pens in their gardens. They provide vital hands on care and accommodation to stray, abandoned cats or cats whose owners could sadly no longer keep them, and are part of a dedicated team of volunteers committed to finding new homes for cats in need. Most of our fosterers care for one or two cats at a time and enjoy providing lots of TLC to those cats which have been pre-loved or have had a difficult start in life. Some of our fosterers look after new mums and kittens and provide round the clock care to new-borns with tummies to fill and lots to learn. No matter what type of cats they have in care our fosterers provide the best start to the next stage of their lives.

Closing date: 30 May 2021
