  • 1.  Locating foster's

    We are a foster based rescue. We are having trouble locating foster's for adult dogs and if they have issues it is even harder to find a home. How are other rescues locating new fosters?

    With every new dog we take in, we include a fostering pitch when we post the dog to social media. Sometimes, people need to associate with an image of a dog in order to stir their interest. Now, we don't necessarily allow them to choose which dog they foster (we have a say in that... e.g., we're not going to give a trainwreck to a newbie), so we word the pitch accordingly.... "Are you ready to help us save more lives, like Punky's? Message us to learn how to apply today!"

    Yep-- this is the most effective technique for our rescue too. We also get a lot of fosters by word of mouth-- we ask fosters and volunteers every once and a while to help us share foster pleas and talk with friends and family about our program.
