Kingaroy RSPCA searches for new foster carers for animals

THE RSPCA in Kingaroy is searching for new foster carers to look after animals before they are adopted.

Assistant animal care manager Bonny Heit said all expenses relating to the program, including food, would be taken care of by the RSPCA.

"What I love about the foster care program is we're setting the animals up to be ready for adoption,” Ms Heit said.

"If they're growing up in a sheltered environment, they're learning that they're getting fed in the morning and having their kennels cleaned out.

"We do a bit of work in the day, but for the most part they're alone.

"Where as in a home environment they are around normal household noises, kids and other pets and they are getting used to the smells.

"The ones people want to adopt are the animals that come running up to them, the social ones.”

Ms Heit said the RSPCA would host a foster care training session on Sunday.

"The foster care coordinator will be coming up from Brisbane,” she said.

"We will also have another training session in a month or so, we will also have the option to do one on one training in the future.”

Ms Heit said they were also looking for volunteers.

Forster care training will take place at the Kingaroy RSPCA, on Warren Truss Dr, from 10am-12pm on March 5.
