South East Cornwall Cats Protection is seeking more people prepared to foster cats in their area. The charity already has several dedicated cat-fosterers working in the PL10-PL18 area, but needs more. Volunteers either allow fostered cats free rein in their homes, or the Cats Protection branch assembles a shed with pens, effectively a cattery in their garden, so that the cats are safe, but not in the home.
Cats in need are regularly reported to the group, which then passes them to fosterers to look after until a permanent home is found. Most fosterers have one or two cats at a time, showing love and care to the cats, and giving them a fresh start. The cost of caring for the cats is met by the charity, including vets, food, travel costs and electricity, along with training and support.
Volunteers are particularly welcomed from the Liskeard and Torpoint areas.
You can see more about what is required, along with some photos and film of cats, and the type of shed that is installed, on the Plymouth Herald website.
