There are often occasions when we need a Kalkan animal cared for on a short terms basis. This might be following veterinary treatment, when often cage rest is required, even for dogs and cats which will be returned to the streets. It might be a temporary measure whilst a forever home is found, or even as stop gap between visitors from abroad agreeing to adopt and the actual process being completed. Whatever the reason, our foster carers are invaluable to us, often taking on cats or dogs at very short notice. Fostering can be hard work but it can be so rewarding to see an animal you have cared for return to their “normal” life. Luckily we now have a couple of cages at the HQ so we can provide some care for sick cats, if an animal is really poorly then they must stay in vet care and we understand that but it’s the animals that need to recover from an op or need regular medication that sometimes need a foster carer for a day or two or even a few weeks.
If fostering is something you feel you could help with, let us know, but also keep an eye open both here on the website and by joining our Facebook group, Friends of KAPSA where urgent appeals for carers will be posted.
