Foster caring involves temporarily bringing an animal into your home to prepare them for permanent adoption. Foster a dog, cat or kitten with AWL NSW today!

Our Kemps Creek (Sydney) shelter and our 12+ branches across NSW rely on foster carers to help Animal Welfare League NSW rehome over 2,000 animals each year!

For all animals in our foster care program, we supply food, litter, flea and worming treatment and all vet bills are paid by us (with prior approval).

Foster caring with AWL NSW is a truly rewarding experience and with so many dogs, cats and kittens out there, becoming a foster carer is one of the best things you can do to help.

To be eligible, you need to:

  • Have the time to provide training/hands-on attention to a foster animal
  • Have previous animal experience
  • Have your own car
  • Have room in your home for a foster animal
  • Live within a 70 minute drive of one of our branches or our Sydney (Kemps Creek) shelter.
  • Be willing to foster a medium-large dog, cat or kitten.

Dog, cat and kitten carers for our Sydney (Kemps Creek) shelter are supported by our dedicated Foster Care Officer and on-site vet clinic. Foster Carers for our regional branches are supported by at least 1 dedicated volunteer branch representative.

Cat and kitten foster carers need to be able to supply a litter tray, food/water bowls, toys and bedding.

We are happy to assist all foster carers and guide you through the entire foster process!
