Cat fostering

Do you have a spare room which you could offer to a pregnant cat to have her kittens?  Would you be able to care for an adult cat who is waiting to find their permanent home?

Mums & Kittens Fostering

We have an urgent need for volunteer cat fosterers who can provide a safe and calm foster home for pregnant mums and their kittens.

We’re looking for people who have a secure spare room, and who have had looked after cats (particularly new born kittens) before and are willing to travel to either our London or Brands Hatch site.  Please note that we are not looking for cat fosterers for our Old Windsor site at this time. 

You’ll play an essential part in offering pregnant cats some quiet space to have their kittens, and then some vital socialising sessions for the kittens, which will help us to find them permanent homes when you bring them back to Battersea.  We’re ideally looking for people who can take on cats for 9-13 weeks, can provide updates and photographs as needed and have their own transport, as some cats will need to be brought back to Battersea regularly. We are looking for fosterers who are home for much of the day.

We provide food, medical treatment and check ups throughout the duration of the foster period.   

This volunteer role will not be suitable for anyone who has not had experience of looking after cats.

To apply, please complete our Mums & Kittens Fostering Application Form (199 kb) [doc] and return to [email protected]

All successful applicants will be invited in for an informal interview and a home visit will be arranged.
