Capacity for Care (C4C)
Facilities and foster homes of any organization has a maximum capacity for humane care based on its ability to meet the Five Freedoms.
This capacity is influenced by:
the animals’ physical and behavioural needs
physical space available
caregiver ability and time for husbandry and training
the presence of other animals
adoption and transfer options
funding and other resources which may influence the care of the animal
foster coordination and other administrative resources.
An organization’s capacity may fluctuate depending on these factors.
At any given time, the organization MUST know its overall capacity and that of each of its foster homes and facilities.
Meeting C4C allows animals to remain healthy with good welfare during their stay and move through the system quickly without delays from illness.
