Fostering

Why foster?

Do you have a lot of love to give? Love animals but can’t commit to having a full time pet? Fostering is a great way for you to be able to fulfil these needs, whilst helping free up valuable space in our shelter for sick, injured or vulnerable animals & helping to prepare our animals for their future furever homes. 

 

By fostering one of our animals, you are agreeing to take our animal into your home on a temporary basis & care for them, until they are well enough to be released back to the shelter or are adopted. 

 

Animals that are available for fostering, are fostered for a variety of different reasons:

 

• Illness:
They may be sick or injured & need a quiet safe space to rest & recover.

 

• Behavioral problems:
To aid socialisation or to assist the animal to transition from the shelter to a domestic environment.

 

• Space:
The shelter may be at capacity, & by offering your home as a temporary space, you are freeing up space & resources at the shelter.

Wish to foster? Do you meet the following requirements?

If so we would love to hear from you

 

🐾  At least 21 years old

🐾  Live within an hours drive of the shelter

🐾  Are going to be staying in your current place of residence for the next 6 months.

🐾  If you are renting, you have express written permission from your landlord that you are able to keep an animal on the premises

🐾  You have owned an animal before

🐾  You are at home for several hours a day

Fostering an animal from our shelter is a wonderfully rewarding experience. You are not only opening up your home & your heart, but you are opening up space in our shelter, to enable us to be able to take on more animals in need. More space at the shelter, means more animals off the street. More animals off the street = More potential for our animals to end up in the loving arms of a family.  

 

You will receive full support from us whilst on your fostering journey, to ensure that both you & your new furry friend are fully supported whilst adjusting to your new experience together. 

Morocco Animal Aid will equip you with all the necessary equipment & advice to make your time together as comfortable, safe & enjoyable as possible.
