Reference nr. 1893 : BOI Animal Rescue
Become a Foster Carer

Volunteer remotely. Bay of Islands Animal Rescue is looking for committed people who can offer short term care to needy pets in their own homes.

Would you like a pet but are not in a position to give long term commitment?

Do you have a spare room you could offer a needy cat or time to devote to cheering up an unhappy dog?

If you can’t have a pet of your own or aren’t able to foster would you like to help by fund raising or sponsoring a dog?

What you will be doing:

  • Caring for Bay of Islands Animal Rescue pets in your own home until they can be rehomed
  • Pets might be recuperating from operations, too young to rehome yet
  • You may also offer to foster pregnant females or mums and litters
  • You will be providing all the care they need by feeding, exercising, cleaning, socialising, giving medication and grooming – don’t worry we can provide materials if needed

Specific requirements
  • Experience of handling and caring for pets
  • You need to live within an hour of the central Bay of Islands and have use of suitable transport
  • A spare room if fostering cats, a garden is beneficial if fostering dogs
  • Willingness to learn and follow Bay of Islands Animal Rescue procedures
  • Competent, flexible and self-motivated
  • Above all to be kind and patient
