    Hi! I am Kristina and I am with Fetching Tails in Chicago, IL.  I am looking to get more information on how to expand my foster program and make it enjoyable for everyone.

    At our shelter, The Humane Society of Washington County, MD, we have regular, long-term fostering for cats/kittens.  We also have "medical fostering".  For dogs we have the regular type of fostering, PLUS, we have Sleepovers, Dog-gone Getaways, "medical fostering", "socialization fostering", and we have done "emergency fostering" when we've had things like "fire alarm testing".  Our Fosters love to step in and help.  During the Holidays, dogs went out on Thanksgiving, Christmas Tree Lighting, Christmas Eve and New Years' Eve.  We cleared the adoption floor and there were a lot of "foster fails".  Good times.......
