If you are an animal lover, this is the volunteer role for you. Fostering an animal in need can mean the difference between life and death for rescues. These souls only need a temporary home and a guiding hand to help them get ready for adoption by their furever family. You will be provided with all the equipment you need for your foster animal, from food, to blankets, toys, and crates. What you will need to bring to the party is patience, love and stability. Once you feel the animal is ready, they can go up for adoption and you can have the satisfaction of knowing you have changed the life of the animal and the family it is going to. Bay of Islands Animal Rescue is a rescue and rehoming charity. We are staffed by volunteers and we run purely on donations and fundraising. We are lucky enough to have amazing support from the community who donate time, materials and money. We work with all domestic animals and do our best to find unwanted animals loving homes. We are big on de-sexing and trying to reduce the numbers of unwanted puppies, kittens etc. being born each year. We also aim to educate owners in how to care for and look after their animals properly. We are happy to offer practical support, basic training and advice to help them care for their animals. • We are trying to stop unnecessary euthanising • We will do our best to find unwanted animals loving new homes. • Each animal will stay in our care until he\she is ready to be re-homed. • All animals will be re-homed to suitable homes only. • We will provide all our animals with a safe living environment. • Good behaviour and obedience skills will be taught and encouraged. • We will advise and support owners to help them care for their animals.
