Saving Lives with Adoption Ambassadors

Are you looking for an easy, appealing way to save more lives and engage the community in your mission? Here it is!

The Adoption Ambassadors program is foster care taken to the next level: You supply simple training and a few tools, and your foster parents take it from there. The benefits Adoption Ambassadors organization report include:

  • New audience of adopters
  • Significant reduction in returns
  • Home-to-home adoption model that frees up additional resources to help more animals
  • It works for cats too!

The ASPCA's Meg Allison, who was the first adoption coordinator for the program at LA/SPCA, says Adoption Ambassadors "changes the conversation from 'I help save lives' to 'we are saving lives' and the enthusiasm builds as more and more dogs are adopted!"

Will it work for you? Yes! Keep reading to find out how.
