About This Call: Barrier-Free Foster Program
@Nadia Oseguera (California Program Manager for the UC Davis Koret Shelter Medicine Program) offers an incremental change approach to broadening your shelter’s base of foster care volunteers. This incremental change approach guided her work during her five years with the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) where she managed a high-volume feline foster program in collaboration with the Los Angeles County Department of Animal Care and Control (DACC). Her focus on inclusivity, breaking down barriers and ensuring that anyone who wanted to help kittens and cats would be able to led to more than 1,000 foster caregivers collectively caring for more than 9,000 kittens and cats – from newborn bottle babies to senior cats.
