September 2020: PFSS Update, after Covid-19 supension
After suspension of pet fostering due to the pandemic, PFSS commenced a gradual re-start of pet fostering.
Pet Foster Care:
To request foster care please phone our national number between 9am and 7pm to speak with one of our area organisers. You may have to leave a message.
0344 811 9909 (this is a ‘normal’ call rate number)
Please not that at this time and in view of the on-going Covid-19 situation, the criteria and process for pet acceptance is strict. At all times we will be keeping within the Scottish Government guidelines and in particular taking note of the daily changes and local area restrictions.
PFSS will also ensure that all involved take extra care to ensure the safety, in terms of hygiene and safe distancing.
Please note that PFSS is currently not operational in the Borders region, however we plan to re-start soon.
PFSS is always very pleased to hear from anyone wishing to volunteer, please read about our work on this website & complete the application on the 'Volunteering' page of this website or email email@example.com.
An important part of our volunteer recruitment process is the 'home visit', where we ensure a foster home is 'pet friendly'. This part of our process has been on-hold and under review, due to the current virus situation.
PFSS is therefore pleased to announce that from early September 2020 we will be using a 'virtual home visit' process. The team will be undertaking this by video for all the visits that are currently on-hold, together with new applications. As you will appreciate we do have a large backlog of volunteer applications to now process, so it will take some time to complete this. While under 'normal' conditions we aim for a six week processing time for new volunteers, please understand that the timescale may currently be a number of months.
