OUR FOSTERING NETWORK
Founded in 2014, Treat Me Kind is a charity that works to promote compassion towards animals.
We raise awareness about animal welfare issues through campaigns, educational programmes and appeals.
Thank you for your interest in becoming a Treat me Kind Foster carer. We are always keen to work with compassionate, dedicated, and loving people who would like to help cats in need.
Foster carers are unique individuals who dedicate their time and love to helping vulnerable animals who need care while waiting for their forever home.
Fostering a cat
Fostering is a wonderful way to help cats in need of a good and loving home. We rely on people to help us by providing a temporary home for cats in our care. By becoming one of our fosterers you are directly helping these animals in need by giving them a gift of a loving and happy home.
By caring for a cat in your own home, you will also give us extra space for another animal in need.
Would you like to foster?
Many cats are looking for a new start and opening your home and heart can be the best gift for them. Living with a foster family can help animals rebuild their confidence.
Every cat is unique, each with a different personality and needs, but we want to be there for each one of them and with your help we can reach these animals. Fostering is very rewarding and brings hope, love, kindness, and care to these felines, especially during their twilight years
Many people choose to foster rather than adopt due to personal circumstances and commitments.
Ahead of opening our cat rescue centre in West Sussex, we are building our network of foster carers. If you are interested in becoming a foster guardian when we open our doors, please complete our Register My Interest form.
With your permission, we would like to keep you up to date with our work, including developments on our rescue rehoming centre, and to stay in touch with you.
When we are ready to open our centre, we will contact you to start the fostering process, including the fostering application form.
There will be a 3-step process conducted by our fostering committee:
First stage – a phone call from the rehoming centre to begin the foster application process.
Second stage – a home visit and initial consultation.
Third stage – you receive foster carer approval.
Each foster carer will receive ongoing support from the rehoming centre. The health and safety of our fosterers, staff and volunteers is of the utmost importance. Due to the current Covid-19 crisis, we will not be able to offer fostering in homes where a member of the household is showing symptoms of, or has a confirmed case of, Covid-19, or has been identified as clinically extremely vulnerable or is shielding.
Thank you for considering fostering and we hope to hear from you soon.
