ADOPTION SUCCESS PILOT PROGRAM - Our first adoption class series ended in October and we are so very proud of Bingo and the progress he made. He is now rocking our Agile and Aware class.
WE LOOK FORWARD TO OFFERING THIS PROGRAM AGAIN NEXT YEAR.
ADOPTION SUCCESS PROGRAM DETAILS:
ALL foster dogs meeting the requirements listed below are welcome and we think it will be particularly helpful for those that
have been in shelters or foster care for some time with no interest or those who were adopted and returned. It will also help new foster volunteers learn what to focus on in helping their dog find his forever family. In
addition to training the skills that will most help the dogs’ adoptability, we
will also work on helping them become more comfortable and less stressed when
meeting new people and in new places. We
can also address individual issues any of the dogs may have.
as part of this program, we will take videos of the dogs in training so that
you can share on Facebook, your websites, and other networking resources. As
the dogs become more comfortable at Shape A Pup, more of their charm and
personality will come through which will help them show better. In addition,
fosters/volunteers are encouraged to invite potential adopters to
come meet the dogs in this controlled, less stressful setting. They can come as
often as they wish throughout the five week series which will also provide an
opportunity to educate them on the foster to
permanent home transition. The shelters and rescue groups will handle the
actual adoption approvals and paper work so each group will be able to follow
their rules and requirements.
dogs participating in the program will need to have been in the
foster’s/volunteer’s home a MINIMUM of two weeks and be current on their vet
recommended vaccinations, including rabies if old enough, and puppies not yet
old enough will need to be current on their age appropriate immunizations. If a dog is adopted before the series is
over, another foster that meets the program requirements may be substituted at
no additional charge.

I know there
are some great dogs out there that just need a little extra help to lead them
to a loving forever family so we sincerely hope that this new program will help lead them there. Please
feel free to share this information with your fellow fosters and others you know who foster/volunteer for shelters and/or rescue
