Description

Are you passionate about animal welfare? Join our growing team of volunteer Home Visitors and play a vital role in supporting owners and pets in your local area who are facing an emergency situation.

Our Home Visitors play a vital role in delivery of our service by visiting potential volunteer pet foster carers to assess their house, home situation and the fosterer.
You will be contacted by PFSS when there is a need for a home visit in your area.
Main tasks:

  • Contact the potential fosterer and arrange a time for the home visit to take place
  • Carry out the home visit following the guidelines provided by PFSS
  • Complete the home visit report and return a copy to the Home Visit Coordinator

Organisation aims and objectives

PFSS provides a unique service, supporting pet owners who are facing ill health, temporary homelessness or domestic abuse. Our volunteer foster carers give a pet a temporary “home from home”, taking responsibility for their care, feeding and exercise, freeing the owner from worry at a difficult time.
