We've had a fabulous year, and we couldn't be more grateful to all our volunteers, corporate sponsors, rescue partners, donors, Foster Champions, foster parents, and fans! Thank you!
In 2018, Foster Dogs began pulling our first dogs as New Hope Partners directly from the city shelter Animal Care Centers. This year alone, we directly rescued and placed into foster care 15 shelter dogs (12 adopted, 3 Fospice), placed hundreds more into foster/adoptive homes for our rescue partners through social media and direct outreach, sent nearly 100 Foster Roster blasts to our list of over 2,700 applicants, had 55 events (16 Adoption Events, 6 Workshops, 9 Puppy Parties, 2 Rescuer Happy Hours, and many more), welcomed dozens of new volunteers, worked with over 30 rescues in the Tri-State area, including our 20 participating organizations. We're not stopping there, and can't wait for new things to come in 2019.
Three of these special dogs are/were part of “Chloe’s Fospice Friends,” receiving continued support from Foster Dogs through the end: Albie, Lucy, and Sebastian.
Each of these dogs are seniors, and received necessary surgeries (dental extractions, tumor removals, spay and neuter) at our two veterinary partners City Vet in Upper West Side and at Animal Kind Veterinary Hospital in Park Slope Brooklyn.
None of this is possible without our network of support around the country. Animal rescue is a team effort. Thank you for helping us build a foster community!
Thank you for everything. Get excited for big things to come in 2019!
