Thommo has been fostered for two periods after his owner was admitted to hospital. There was sheer delight for both when reunited on both occasions. In the photo he was on `poster boy' duty' pulling in the punters for a community breakfast at the Golden Ball.

Becca &  Bella


These two `sisters' have been fostered on a number of occasions when their owner has either been in hospital or has been too ill to look after them.


was fostered by a KYP volunteer while his owner was in respite care.

Henry & Jessie were looked after when their owner was ill. They liked going for walks!

Jill had to have an eye operation and needed help to walk Fudge at that time

Millie & Sparky

Charley Bonnie


Bonny is a lovely rare breed cat who enjoyed exploring our KYP administrator's  handbag, climbing on her knee and generally checking out that she would be a suitable person to arrange someone to prepare her meals and change her litter tray if her owner couldn't manage it.

Charley is getting on in years now (16+) and often stays in her basket, although she also enjoys gentle games and a stroll in the garden occasionally. She would like us to find a quiet home where she could be fostered if her owner ever needs to go in hospital

brian barabara & jessie patch

Brian,Barbara and Jessie - our sponsorship spremos who excelled themselves again this year raising lots of money at the Dog Walk. Well Done!!

How can you resist Patch who was recently fostered by one of our volunteers? He was found sitting by his owner - who had collapsed at home. Sadly his owner later died and Patch is waiting at the RSPCA for a loving home. He was a delightful dog to look after and needs a home with people who can give him the attention and care that he seeks.
