Foster Homes Needed - Guidelines

Post by Fancy Rats Admin » Thu Jul 21, 2011 3:22 pm

Guidelines for posting

This forum is available to those who wish to find foster homes for rats, whatever the circumstances. Examples would be:
Looking for a foster home for your own rats to cover a period of hospitalisation/illness/extended travel.
Asking for volunteers to foster rats from a larger rescue.
Seeking those with experience of fostering a pregnant or nursing doe.

Please include the location, the number of rats needing fostered, the length of time needed and whether or not it is urgent in the title.

If you are considering becoming involved in fostering you might wish to read this article.

We recommend that all fostering arrangements are kept formal, with a written agreement covering things like who is responsible for veterinary costs, general costs of care, the rehoming of rescued rats and what happens if the owner "disappears" and does not respond to communication.

The advertising of rescues as available for rehoming is not permitted here. Please use the Rats Needing New Homes forum. Nor is it permitted to offer or discuss any arrangements relating to a permanent home.


Autoprune is a feature that automatically deletes threads that have not been posted to within a certain amount of days.
