Fostering gives vulnerable animals a higher chance in surviving and subsequently, finding a forever home.

In SPCA Selangor, we occasionally receive young, sick, injured, or non-sociable animals that need the extra care before they are healthy enough and are safe for adoption.

Their average fostering period lies between 2 weeks to 2 months, and will depend on how well they are coping.

Young Animals

Animals younger than 2 months old are vulnerable to diseases and are at risk in environments that introduce new animals regularly, like shelters.
The foster parent needs to commit their time to these young animals as they need a lot of attention and have a regular feeding schedule.

Sick and Injured Animals

The foster parent will provide sick and injured animals with the additional time, medication, and space they need to recover. This may include the time to recover from emotional, fear, or stress-based situations that the animal may have encountered in the past.

Non-Sociable Animals

These animals may have experienced abuse from humans, and are scared or nervous around people. The foster parent needs to understand that the animal needs time and experienced handlers who can help them regain their trust in humans again.

We are very grateful to have an active group of reliable fosterers, who go out of their way to nurture and rehabilitate the animals who arrive at our doorstep.
