I don't live in Perth. Can I still foster? Most of the animals in RSPCA’s care are based at the Animal Care Centre in Malaga. Foster carers are required to bring animals in for regular medical checks and behaviour assessments, so foster care is only available in the Perth and Peel regions. Regional RSPCA WA inspectors based in Geraldton, Kalgoorlie, the South West and the Great Southern regions may require local emergency or short-term volunteers to help care for rescued animals prior to those animals being transferred to the Animal Care Centre in Malaga. If you are interested in becoming part of these local networks, please make a note in your application and the foster care team will forward your details to the local Inspector.
