Foster Dogs Inc.'s #FosterDogManual is here: "What to Expect When You're Fos'pecting!" This incredible guide  is now available (free) to the public, and ready to be distributed around the country in hard-copy and PDF .

All donations to Foster Dogs, Inc. are 100% tax-deductible!


Our goal: Increase foster efforts in more cities, thus increasing the amount of lives saved for shelter dogs. Every time one dog finds a foster home, he/she is safe and is one step closer to finding an adopter. But that's not all: you help free up space in the shelter for another dog in need. Many shelters euthanize dogs (even young puppies) due to a lack of adopters / foster homes / space. Fostering helps tackle this dilemma, one dog at a time.

Fostering should be a positive experience, one that you will want to repeat at every possible opportunity.

Thanks to photographer Sophie Gamand and graphic designer Dorie Herman, we created a gorgeous, appealing, quick-start guide to fostering a dog. Gamand's adorable vibrant images feature shelter dogs of all ages, sizes, and breeds, taken at shelters around the United States. Our Foster Dogs team including Sarah Brasky, Tara Bahl, andLauren Hirata prepared the information and text within the guide. We talked with professional dog trainer Andrea Arden to gather crucial training tips, to support your awareness of best practices with a new dog.

With Foster Dogs Inc.'s efforts expanding nationally this year, it is crucial to share our message with people all over the country: fostering saves lives!

Please DONATE any amount to support our efforts, as we are printing in NYC, and distributing manuals free-of-charge to retail and shelter locations nationwide.

Manuals are printed at Park Slope Copy Center in Brooklyn, NY.

Derry the foster puppy was just adopted, and her foster mom Jenny gave her new parents our manual as prep for the adjustment - PLUS Jenny completed the "All About Me" manual supplement form, so the adopters know all about their new puppy. We LOVE seeing our manuals in action.

Thank you for your donations! Keep spreading the word! View the manual and supplemental links: http://fosterdogsnyc.com/manual/
