In brief this is a foster scheme for elderly people... cats can have such therapeutic values... for the older community... but the one thing that stops them wanting to take a cat on in their senior years is the worry of what will happen to the cat when they become too ill infirm or pass away.
A Purr-fect Companion fosterer and cat will be carefully and suitably matched.
Through PURRFECT COMPANIONS BCWR will pay any vet care costs if required, transport the kitties to the vets and will always take the kitty back into the rescue when they can no longer care for the cat.
If there is little family support, a link volunteer will be assigned to ensure that things are going ok and that they have all the essentials.
If you know anyone who would be interested in becoming a Purrfect companion please contact us.
