What am I responsible for?
  • Providing essential everyday care, food and shelter
  • Ensuring that flea and worming treatments are up to date, and advising Melbourne Animal Rescue of treatment dates
  • Assisting with the adoption process, providing a profile and photo of the animal, and allowing potential new owners to come to meet animals in your care*
  • Informing Melbourne Animal Rescue IMMEDIATELY of any incident involving an animal in your care.

Note: ALL potential owners are screened and interviewed by Melbourne Animal Rescue prior to meeting any foster animals.

We also have a private group on Facebook you will be added to so you can communicate with other foster carers for Melbourne Animal Rescue. This is a wonderful tool, where you will find a generous amount of support, documentation to aid you during your time as a foster carer for Melbourne Animal Rescue and of course, plenty of photos of our fosters!
