Foster Carer Registration Form
Thank you for applying to be a foster carer. Our preferred criteria for foster carers are:

You live within about an hour of either Cardiff/Newport - this is so we can provide support as needed.

All resident animals MUST be neutered and up to date with vaccinations. If there is a medical reason why this is not possible please include details in your application.

We do not generally place animals in foster homes where there are children under 5 - we will however consider homes with young children as pup foster homes.

Foster dogs should not be left for more than 4 hours a day on a regular basis, 2 hours for pups.

As foster dogs may not be housetrained, upper floor flats are not generally suitable. You will also need a safe, enclosed garden.

Thank you for your support, we will be in touch as soon as we can. If possible, please include a landline number to help keep our costs down.


Your personal data will only be used in connection with your application to become a foster carer. Four Paws will never pass your information to any third party not connected to the process and the details will not be used for marketing purposes. All data is password protected and only accessed by relevant members of the Four Paws team.

We may contact your vets to confirm neutering/vaccination status of any resident animals.
