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 volunteers branches across NSW rely on foster carers to help Animal Welfare League NSW rehome and care for over 2,000 animals each year! Foster caring with AWL NSW is a truly rewarding experience and with so many dogs, cats and kittens needing help, becoming a foster carer is one of the best things you can do to help us save lives.

For all animals in our foster care program at our Kemps Creek shelter, AWL NSW supplies food, litter, flea and worming treatment and all veterinary care is performed by our veterinarians at our Kemps Creek veterinary clinic.

To be eligible, you need to:

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

Dog, cat and kitten carers for our 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 one dedicated volunteer branch representative.

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