Maddie's Fund Helps Support Large-Dog Foster Programming

With today being "National Adopt a Shelter Pet Day," we wanted to highlight a group of animals who really need your help. Want to know who are some of most at-risk animals in shelters right now? Medium and large adult dogs, that's who. But what can we do? With continued support from volunteers/fosters/donors/adopters, further creativity, realistic expectations and flexibility, scientific research and data, and lots of hard work, we as a nation can solve this dilemma.

Our Executive Director Sarah spent time in Arizona to learn more ways to improve foster programming. This "Medium and Large Adult Dog Foster Apprenticeship" is made possible by Maddie's Fund, and Foster Dogs is honored to have been chosen to attend.

Want to help? Consider bringing home a medium or large-sized adult dog from your local shelter, as a foster! A few weeks could make a huge difference, even a few days! Become a partner group with Foster Dogs to continue building a foster community. We're starting with New York City, and will continue to promote our work nationwide until every shelter dog has a foster home. 

If you're in the NYC area, join our Foster Roster to hear of more opportunities.
