Foster programs are a necessity in any animal shelter or rescue but creating and maintaining one that provides consistent positive output can be a challenge. Foster homes reduce in-shelter population, reduce stress on staff and animals, and provide much needed real-life information about adoptable animals. The challenge is creating a foster base that will consistently help with the animals your shelter needs help with; the medically challenged and/or behaviorally challenged population.
What you will learn:
- How to break down your foster program and rebuild it for success
- The benefits of opening your foster program up to include all adoptable animals in your shelter and why that variety will help you sustain your program
- How to streamline communication with foster parents

The National Animal Care & Control Association (NACA) was formed in 1978 for the express purpose of assisting its members to perform their duties in a professional manner. We believe only carefully selected and properly trained animal control personnel can correct community problems resulting from irresponsible animal ownership. NACA’s purpose is to preserve the Human/Animal Bond by insisting on responsible animal ownership.
