Pet Fostering Service

Pet Fostering Service in Scotland

What does it do?

If a pet owner is in one of these situations and is unable to afford boarding fees or arrange any other care for their pet, then PFSS will try to help.

PFSS does not operate a boarding centre or kennels but relies solely on volunteers who welcome the pet into their own home.

Our foster carers have been approved through an assessment process and had a home visit by our team.

How does it work?

In the event of an emergency, a carer* or relative or the owner should contact the local PFSS Area Organiser, via our national low cost phone number:

0344 811 9909 (open between the hours of 9am and 7pm daily) Calls cost 7p per minute + your connection charge
Just listen to the recorded message and select your area of Scotland, or see our Contact Page for details of the phone number options.

We do not accept foster requests by email or any other method, only by phone to our national number.
