There are various ways you can help Nova Pooch Rescue Inc. apart from adopting one of our precious pooches.
A foster carer is someone who provides a safe, nurturing environment for a shelter animal until a permanent home can be found. Pounds, shelters and rescue groups around Australia are dedicated to rescuing homeless pets. However, many have limited physical facilities and are only able to hold pets for a few days before needing to ‘make space’ for new animals. To save pets from the threat of euthanasia, these groups rely heavily on a network of compassionate foster carers to give pets more time to be permanently rehomed.
Foster caring allows a much smoother transition when the animal is placed into his new home. As you can imagine, being kept in a shelter can be very stressful and traumatic for many animals. In your home they have a chance to feel safe and secure, to be nurtured, exercised and socialised. As a foster carer, your pet will be matched with your lifestyle and circumstances. Your shelter or rescue group will provide ongoing information and support to ensure both you and your foster pet enjoy their stay in your home.
There are as many different people becoming foster carers as there are pets; families who have space for one more pet, singles who would love a pet but can’t yet commit, retired couples who travel part of the year, parents who want to teach their children about caring for animals, people who would like a second pet but just aren’t sure, people who care about animal welfare and are willing to help save a life… all you need is a genuine love of animals and a willingness to help.
2. DONATE FUNDS:
As always, rescue requires funds to continue operating. All adoption fees go directly into paying for the continued veterinary care of our rescued pooches.
Many of our rescued pooches require:
- Flea Treatments
- Heart Worming
- Council Registration
- Dental work
- On-going veterinary care
You can use PayPal to donate funds directly to Nova Pooch Rescue Inc. Just click on the button to donate.
3. DONATE ITEMS:
Caring for any pet can be costly. All pet care basics will impact on a family budget. If you’d like to easy the cost of pet care for our foster pooches, please donate any of these items:
- Food, Treats, Chews, Dog Bowls
- Flea & Worming Treatment
- Leashes, Collars, Coats
- Dog Bedding, Kennels, Crates, Carriers
- Grooming supplies including shampoos & skin conditioners
All rescue groups are driven by volunteers and without them rescue groups such as Nova Pooch Rescue would come to a grinding halt.
If you are interested in volunteering to help Nova Pooch Rescue Inc then please complete the volunteer application form.
It’s vital that we get information out into the community. Many do not understand the issues surrounding companion animals.
