FOSTERING

Fostering an animal is important because it helps reduce overcrowding in the SSPCA shelter and opens up space for another animal to be rescued. It also helps prepare animals for adoption by giving them a chance to live in a home where they can fully express their personality, work to overcome fears, or recover from trauma.

Many animals that come to the SSPCA shelter are neglected, abused or abandoned, many have never had a home and they need special care to be rehabilitated before adoption.

It has also been proven that animals can improve your health and mental wellbeing. Having a pet who’s utterly devoted to you is appealing for many people. Owning a pet can be a rewarding experience.
