Volunteer as a Foster Home
The goal of the SEY member associations is to provide unclaimed sheltered animals proper care and homes for the rest of their lives. Animal welfare associations have facilities for temporary care of homeless animals, and also more and more private foster homes. Foster homes are places where animals can get well and recover, and learn to live as a member of a family. At the same time an evaluation can be made about what kind of a home is suitable for the animal – for example whether it can live in a family with children or with other animals of the same species. In most cases, a foster home is better place for the animal to start its new life than a long-term facility.
