I have been privileged to have been a foster carer since 2011.
As far back as I can remember I have always loved all animals, and fed many orphan kittens and other dogs and birds in need and found them loving homes. Then after a work accident that left me unable to work, the opportunity arose to become a foster carer looking after cats and dogs in need. They give me a reason to get up and struggle through the constant pain from my injuries, and there is nothing more satisfying seeing a scared and sometimes sick or injured cat, become a loving and trusting kitty ready for a happy future in a loving adoptive home, it tugs at the heart and there are tears of sadness and happiness as you wave them off in the arms of their new parents. I also tend to have an affinity for the disabled and long termers, caring for a couple of sight impaired mother and son kitties and a few feral cats.
Being a foster carer brings you a houseful of love and a satisfaction knowing in a little way you are helping the many animals in need. I wish everyone would consider becoming a foster carer as there is so many rescues needing our help to save lives.
Sharon's foster kitties require donations of kitty litter and $$ for Regina's heart medications.
