  • Need


    Sick/injured stray animals and animals taken in by RSPCA inspectors because of neglect or cruelty need somewhere to be cared for until they can be placed in new homes. Without this they would either have to stay in unsatisfactory circumstances or be put to sleep.


    We will provide foster homes and pay for space in private boarding kennels so that animals can be cared for. This is cost-effective because it means we only need to pay for the space actually needed, rather than fundraising to build new premises of our own.

  • Aims

    Aim 1

    To save and rehabilitate animals who would otherwise be killed.


    » Pay for space in private boarding kennels where animals can be kept.
    » Recruit foster carers who will look after animals in their own homes.
    » Make good use of foster homes to assess how the animals behave in a normal domestic environment to help us select suitable final homes.

    What success will look like

    Success will be achieving our goal of accepting all sick/injured strays we are requested to admit and also all animals brought in by our inspectors.

  • Impact


    If successful the project will save the lives of at least 200 animals every year.


    There is a (slight) risk that fosterers might be injured when handling dogs of unknown background. We are dealing with this by training in safe animal handling and assessing foster homes before placing animals with them.


    We publish monthly statistics of our activities on our website in the diary (blog) section.
