  • 1.  Foster Mentor Handbook

    Posted 10-16-2021 12:56 PM
    Does anyone already have a mentor handbook created they could share? I am working on a foster mentor program and writing up a handbook so they know how to answer certain problems/issues with foster animals before having to elevate to the foster team. Wondered if anyone had one already written up, I could look at to help me get started on mine.  Thanks! kelly kteasley@atlantahumane.org

    Hi Kelly,

    We don't have a handbook for staff, but we do for our fosters. I've attached our handbook for fosters here in case that is at all helpful to you. 

    Kind Regards,

    Kelly,

    Cat Adoption Team has some amazing Foster Mentor resources available to download on their Fostering4RockStars webpage. Here's a screenshot of some of those resources.

    @karen green and @Kristi Brooks may be able to answer questions about their program too. Good luck!​​

    @Kate Mudge, I see that Pet Haven in Minnesota has a foster mentor program. Are you able to share their Foster Mentor handbook if there is one?​
