Cats Protection in Harrow is looking for people to care for abandoned cats

Cats Protection’s Harrow Homing Centre is looking for incredible people to care for its cats until they are adopted.

The centre takes in cats from all backgrounds and at all ages, meaning fosterers might be looking after a ‘senior kitizen’ first and then a mother with her new-born litter of kittens next.

The charity provides everything fosterers need; full training, all the equipment and covers the costs of veterinary treatments.

Caroline Ryan, Volunteer Team Leader at Harrow Homing Centre said: “We have an incredible team of volunteer fosterers who open their homes and hearts to cats in need.  Now we’re looking for more fabulous fosterers to join our team so we can help more cats in the Harrow area in need of care.

“Our fosterers regularly tell us just how rewarding it is to see their foster cat, who may be shy at first, really blossom in their home, and then go on to be adopted.

“It can be tough to wave the cat goodbye when they are adopted, but it means they can foster and help another cat.  What could be more fulfilling for a cat-person?

“To foster for us you will need to live within a 30-minute drive of our centre in Wealdstone, Harrow, have access to a car for transport and, of course, love cats.”

The centre in Harrow rehomed over 600 cats in 2021 and aims to rehome even more in 2022, but this is only possible with a team of fabulous fosterers and volunteers.

As well as finding new homes for unwanted and abandoned cats, the charity also offers cat care advice to the public and can help towards the cost of neutering.
