Tips & Training

So you want to be a Foster Carer?

As part of my animal welfare series All Creatures Great and Small, I’ll be chatting this morning on Mornings with Katrina Roe on Hope 103.2. Today I’m talking all things fostering – how everyday people can care for rescued wildlife and companion animals. Fostering a needy animal is such a rewarding experience and I take my hat off to all the furry foster mums and dads out there!
