Adoption Ambassadors

Looking for love? Let’s make a date!

Join the foster revolution by becoming an Adoption Ambassador with The Anti-Cruelty Society! You can become an animal’s foster parent and talent agent to help them make the ultimate love connection: adoption.

How does it work?

The Anti-Cruelty Society’s Adoption Ambassador program connects shelter animals with foster families to provide them with home-based care while working to recruit an adopter. Foster parents are trained in general animal care, foster promotion, and adoption procedures to become the ultimate animal matchmaker. Our goal is to have each Adoption Ambassador find their foster animal a home within 4-8 weeks of entering their care. It’s our way of empowering people like you to make a real difference in the life of a shelter pet. Viva la foster revolution indeed!

How do you get started? We’re so glad you asked!

Complete our general foster program application and indicate “Adoption Ambassador” as your area of interest. Someone from our Community Programs team will then get in touch with you to schedule a one-on-one foster orientation. Once complete, you’ll have the opportunity to put your training to the test by bringing home your first foster pet!

This is a huge responsibility – what does The Anti-Cruelty Society do to help?

As with our traditional foster program, The Anti-Cruelty Society provides all foster parents with on-site medical and behavioral support, as well as some basic pet care supplies. In addition, Adoption Ambassador fosters also receive a life-sized cut-out of their foster to display at their workplaces or with one of our community partners, an Adoption Ambassador t-shirt and tote bag, “adopt me” vests and collars, and other customized promotional materials for their specific foster animal. Adoption Ambassadors also have the chance to bring their foster pets to special media and adoption events. All animals in the program are listed on the Society’s main adoption page and are featured on our various social media platforms. Though the main effort is up to the Adoption Ambassador, we’re here to support and cheer you on!
