How do you support and scale your foster program during times of crisis? Humane Society Silicon Valley can answer that – they weathered the pandemic storm by pivoting their foster care and adoption processes into safe, no-contact, socially distanced programs. And did we mention they have acquired more than 3,000 new foster families since March’s lock down?

In this session, experts from HSSV will walk you through a few key components to effectively engage volunteers and your community to increase your impact while removing barriers to lifesaving capacity. Participants will walk away with an understanding of:

Increasing your medical team’s capacity through the utilization of volunteers and technology
Developing a foster training strategy that takes advantage of current technology
Managing increased foster demand through tailored and strategic communications
Seizing opportunities and seeing the silver lining in our new normal
The webinar will benefit any animal shelter professional interested in maintaining strong relationships and providing excellent animal care outside of the shelter environment.

Presenters from Humane Society Silicon Valley (HSSV):
Cristie Kamiya, DVM, MBA, Chief of Shelter Medicine
Kristen Jahnke, Director of Shelter Operations
Katie Christie, Manager of Foster and Animal Care
