BROMSGROVE’S Blue Cross rehoming centre in Catshill is appealing for people to come forward and become volunteer foster carers for cats and kittens.
The centre is having a drop-in session for anyone interested between 4.30pm and 6pm and potential fund-raisers from 6pm to 7.30pm – both this Thursday, October 6.
The Blue Cross team will be available to chat about opportunities for volunteers who have some time to spare and space in their home to care for cats. Visitors can also meet other volunteers and find out how they find the experience, practicalities for cat foster caring and how their input is vital in supporting the work of the charity.
There will also be further drop-in sessions for fund-raising volunteers between 10.30am and 12.30pm on Saturday and Sunday, November 5 and 6, and from 11am to 2pm on November 12 for more on cat and kitten foster caring.
All the sessions will be at the rehoming centre in Wildmoor Lane.
This year marks the 125th anniversary of Blue Cross, originally ‘Our Dumb Friends League’.
The charity formed to help vulnerable pets and their owners and the work in rehoming, clinical, animal behaviour, pet bereavement support and educational work continues today.
The charity is striving to be able to help even more pets in the future live healthy lives in happy homes.
The Blue Cross relies on the support and donations of pet lovers to continue its vital work.
