Apply to become a SafePet Foster
Please complete the following questions as much as possible.
We have recently changed our foster home requirements to include the mandatory requirement for no children under 12 years of age living in the home. This is a security measure decided for the safety of young children and for the well being of our foster families and fostered animals alike.
Due to the sensitive nature of our work with women and animals being potential victims of violence, we screen all volunteers before granting them special privacy privileges. All content is kept strictly confidential with SafePet Ottawa. Only some information will be shared with the veterinary clinic caring for the fostered animal(s) in your care.
Volunteer Fosters are required to provide two references please— your veterinary clinic (if you’ve owned an animal in the past ten years) and anyone else of your choice. Your vet is required mainly for emergency purposes.
Thank you for applying to foster animals in need of safety.
Once your submission is received, a Volunteer Coordinator will approve your application and send you a username and password in a separate email. Further instructions will follow.
