Growing Your Adult Dog Foster Program
The course Growing Your Adult Dog Foster Program is an online sequence of classes that replicates as closely as possible the onsite Maddie's® Medium and Large Dog Foster Apprenticeship. This course will teach you how to increase the capacity of your existing program through effective communication and marketing, improved logistics and use of volunteers. The course is especially focused on fostering and finding homes for dogs who are harder to place. A short final project is required. This course was authored by Kelly Duer, Foster Care Specialist at Maddie's Fund®. Upon receipt of a certificate of completion, students' organizations are eligible to apply for a Dog Field Trips grant from Petfinder of up to $1000. (Applicant's organization must be an active Petfinder member with adoptable pets listed on their Petfinder page.)
This course has been pre-approved for 8.0 Certified Animal Welfare Administrator continuing education credits by The Association for Animal Welfare Advancement.
