Full description: Fostr.org is an online service that plays a vital role in strengthening New York’s animal care system by simultaneously educating and recruiting animal lovers to become temporary care-givers.
New York City currently has a 30% euthanasia rate in its animal shelter system, according to Animal Care and Control, but statistics show that fostering plays a critical role in lowering those numbers. Many NYC animal welfare organizations — unfortunately, due to a lack of resources — tend to focus their outreach efforts on adoption, donations, and volunteering while fostering falls between the cracks.
Fostr.org fills a crucial gap in New York City’s animal care ecosystem. The service is a one-stop resource for people who are interested in helping animals but unsure if they can commit to adoption. Fostr.org allows applicants to submit a single application that will connect them with an organization that best accommodates their lifestyle and resources. The resulting foster relationships immediately free up more space in shelters and, in most cases, lead to a higher number of permanent homes for animals that might otherwise be put down.
Simply put, Fostr.org gets animals out of shelters and into warm, welcoming homes. Within three months with the funds from the Hugo Challenge, Fostr.org can 1) build out the website’s back-end functionality and 2) launch a city-wide marketing campaign to engage partner organizations, build awareness of animal fostering, and recruit interested applicants. With the resources provided by the Huge Challenge, Fostr.org can help get animals out of the shelter system and lower euthanasia rates.
