October 2020: PFSS Update.
Pet Foster Care:
After suspension during Covid lockdown, PFSS is gradually re-starting fostering.
To request foster care please phone our national number between 9am and 7pm to speak with one of our area organisers. You may have to leave a message.
0344 811 9909 (this is a ‘normal’ call rate number)
Please note that at this time and in view of the on-going Covid-19 situation, the criteria and process for pet acceptance is strict. At all times we will be keeping within the Scottish Government guidelines and in particular taking note of the daily changes and local area restrictions.
PFSS will also ensure that all involved take extra care to ensure the safety, in terms of hygiene and safe distancing.
Please note that PFSS is currently not operational in Dumfries & Galloway. For Borders region select the East & Lothians phone option and for Lanarkshire select West & Glasgow phone option.
Due to a large backlog of applications from potential pet fosterers we are currently not accepting new applications during this month.
Should you wish to volunteer in the future, please read about our work in this website and we will update this notice to advise when applications are open.
Please note that the application form will not work at this time.
