Photos and stories of all adoptable animals in foster homes are posted on our website, facebook page, on Petfinder.com, on Adoptapet.com, and many other websites. Stray Paws Rescue also schedules periodic adoption events (Usually every 2 weeks). Foster parents are strongly encouraged to participate in adoption events to increase the visibility of their foster dog to potential adopters.
Ultimately you know your foster better than anyone else and so sharing with others will help expedite finding them a home.
One way to help is by supplying great photos and a biography and updating these regularly. Another way is to give the foster pet additional exposure by telling friends and family about them; this helps create a “network effect” and will speed up the process of finding a forever home. Simple steps like taking a foster dog on walks in local parks, outdoor shopping areas, and other high traffic areas will help find potential adopters. Social media outlets like Facebook also work well for both dogs and cats. Remember, everyone in this rescue is a volunteer, and we all need to do our part to market the animals.
