If you are not able to commit to a new pet, perhaps you could open your heart and home to be a foster carer to a pet in need.
PetFoster- an initiative of PetRescue to find foster carers for the thousands of pets in need.
Designed to link new carers with foster care groups, provide resources to existing foster care groups and to help new groups develop a program based on the experiences of successful foster groups across the country, Petfoster aims to empower a community that helps save Australia's homeless pets.
