Teens can earn their required high school community service hours by partnering with a parent and becoming a Teen Adoption Ambassador. The shelter’s Adoption Ambassador Program is similar to foster care… but goes a step further. Adoption Ambassadors will provide temporary homes for select dogs, cats and sometimes rabbits, which will be spayed or neutered and given their preliminary vaccinations before arriving in their temporary homes. All food and supplies needed to care for the pets are provided to you. Unlike foster families, Ambassadors will help maximize their pets’ availability and exposure to potential adopters. You can put a bright orange “Adopt Me” vest on your Ambassador dog while walking them in parks and other pet-friendly, highly visible public venues. For cats and rabbits, you can create signage, use social media and let friends, family and co-workers know you’re caring for a wonderful pet that is looking for its forever home.
