Is your organization looking to save the lives of more adult dogs? Do you have a brick and mortar shelter? Then this instructor-led course is for you. Dive deep into learning how to create and run several types of short-term foster programs that will provide your dogs with enrichment, get them seen, give you great marketing material, and expand your foster caregiver base. Programs covered include field trips, overnights and emergency foster care. If you already have a short-term foster program but think you could do better, this apprenticeship will teach you how from the perspective of an organization that is doing it successfully. 

Instructor: @Linda Batten, Foster Manager, Charlottesville Albemarle SPCA

This instructor-led course requires a time commitment of 12 hours for coursework and classes.

When? Thursdays, 2:30 PM ET, starting September 29th

Who should apply? For all levels of staff and/or volunteers (executives, veterinarians, managers, coordinators or assistants, etc.). Organizations with physical facilities will get the most from this offering. Those with limited staff and financial resources are encouraged to apply, as these programs are inexpensive to run and increase community engagement.

Applications open August 22.
