Part 1 - Cultivating Lasting Transport Partnerships
In this webcast, you’ll learn how creating emotional connections with your transport partners can help you increase adoption and foster placements and engage your supporters. You’ll learn how you can create urgency around pet transport while putting your organization and your partners in a positive light, and how to utilize a great foster tool you may not have known you have. Whether you have a well-established transport program or just starting out, this webcast is for you!
Part 2 - Engaging More Fosters & Adopters
Now that you know how to cultivate strong partnerships and supporters who are invested in seeing you and your partners succeed, it’s time to take your transport program to the next level. In this webcast, we’ll give you a virtual checklist of steps to take in order to increase foster and adoptive placements so you can reduce length of stay, expand capacity to help more large dogs and/or cats, and be there for your partners when they need you.
