Care and Feeding of Foster Families

Because foster parents are members of both the volunteer and operations teams, it’s sometimes unclear how to best meet their needs and to ensure they’re able to provide high quality care. Foster programs are a critical element of any organization’s strategy to save more animal lives. Finding the right foster families, training them to be effective caregivers, and then providing ongoing support are essential to keeping these members of the organization engaged and satisfied with their experience.

Join us as we discuss best practices related to managing, cultivating and retaining foster volunteers. Anyone who regularly works with foster care providers or who is looking to build or expand their existing foster program will benefit from this 60-minute webinar.

Presented by:

  • Hilary Anne Hager, MNPL, Director of Volunteer Engagement, Humane Society of the United States
  • Kara Main-Hester, Ph. D, Dog Trainer, Ahimsa Dog Training, and Strategic Advisor, City of Seattle
