Adoption and Fostering

  • Adopters Welcome Manual (The Humane Society of the United States), free, downloadable PDF manual to help you expand your pool of potential adopters, increase both staff and adopter satisfaction with the overall adoption experience and ensure adopters succeed with their new pets at home. Written for U.S. shelters and rescue groups, but with strategies and tools applicable to anyone looking to place pets in loving homes.
  • The Shelter Pet Project (DRAFTFCB, AdCouncil, Maddie's Fund and The Humane Society of the United States), is the first U.S. Public Service Announcement (PSA) campaign created to bring together animal welfare organizations across the country to increase pet adoption. This presentation describes the goals, strategy, and research behind The Shelter Pet Project.
