Thank you for visiting our Strut Your Mutt Team page. We are Foster Dogs Incorporated. Foster Dogs, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that connects rescue organizations, adopters, fosters, and other partners together in our shared mission to help animals in need.
But there is still so much more to do. Every day, thousands of animals are euthanized in shelters across America because there aren’t enough homes, and there isn’t enough space for them to wait in the shelters. We believe that we can help lower that number by encouraging and educating about fostering. Fostering a dog saves 2 lives, the dog who moves into the foster home and the dog who takes that empty place in the shelter.
As a small, volunteer organization without the profits of adoption fees, we rely heavily on donations to keep our programs going. Your donations to this Strut Your Mutt campaign will help fund programs such as:
- Foster Roster: A one-of-a-kind online database of foster caretakers in the NYC area that allows us to match dogs in need with appropriate foster homes. This program is offered for free to any approved participating shelter or foster-based rescue organizations
- In-Person Foster Education Series: Foster Dogs has developed a stellar education program that we offer for no charge to our foster community. Offered in Manhattan, our workshops are designed for anyone interested in fostering or improving their lifesaving expertise
-Famous Fosters: This program, developed jointly by Foster Dogs & Susie’s Senior Dogs, connects celebrities and influencers with fantastic adoptable dogs. "Famous Fosters" participants use their platforms to help promote fostering and adoption
- Fospice: This incredible program assists elderly or terminally ill shelter dogs in finding “forever foster” placements. We support both the dog and the fosters throughout their journey, providing the dogs with much needed vet care, love, and dignity during their final months
- Lending Library: Foster Dogs believes that fostering should be free! Our Lending Library is hosted at the BARK headquarters in NYC, and offers useful dog care supplies at no cost to current approved foster parents.
Please join us either by registering for our team or donating to one of our team members. Your donation is tax deductible and we at Foster Dogs keep 100 percent of the money raised after transaction fees.
Thank you for your support!
