Foster Carer Application

Why is Foster Care important to the work of Horsham PAWS?

Pound environments can be stressful and anxiety provoking and can in some cases create behavioural and psychological problems in otherwise stable animals. For this reason, Horsham PAWS endeavours to minimise the time animals spend in the pound by matching them to a suitable home environment. This is after the animals have undergone basic temperament testing and health checks.  

Why Foster?

By taking a foster pet into your home you are providing direct and immediate relief from the pound environment. This is one of the greatest contributions you can make towards helping a pet find their “forever home.”   Foster carers help prepare pets for their new homes by providing stability, care and training. While caring for a pet you learn more about its character, behaviour, likes and dislikes. This information is valuable in helping Horsham PAWS match the pet to a new home.
