Fostering with SAFE

Every completed Local Voices survey means a donation can be allocated to a registered community group from across the Pilbara.

One of these groups is Saving Animals from Euthanasia (SAFE).

SAFE started in Karratha and over the last 19 years has grown to become one of Western Australia’s largest animal rescue organisations. Over 32,400 animals have been rehomed since 2003.

Using foster care, where rescued animals are cared for in a home rather than held in a shelter, has been pivotal to so many successful adoptions through SAFE.  Foster care allows the rescued animals to learn to relax and live in a home, socialise with people and other pets.  It also gives carers an opportunity to get to know the personality of the animal, which helps with match making for a permanent home. 

To support its volunteer foster carers, SAFE has been using rewards funding from Local Voices to provide foster starter packs.  Items like collars and tags, leads, toys, bedding and food (and cat litter trays and litter) are all provided with the animal to the foster carer until the animal is adopted.
