ADOPTION AMBASSADORS

Join us as we embark on an approach to adoptions that embrace community members, encourage them to adopt, and help them and their pets succeed.





Adoption Ambassadors

What is it and how can you help?

Adoption Ambassadors

According to ASPCA, The Adoption Ambassadors home-to-home program gives dogs and cats a better chance at finding homes by expanding our reach and engaging volunteers as adoption counselors, talent agents and foster parents at the same time. It lets adopters get more detailed information about an animals’s behavior in a home environment and improves quality of life while awaiting adoption. To learn more about this program and the research behind it, click here.

At AVHS, we are so excited to utilize this program to enhance the adoption process and reduce the number of pets being returned. Want to help us save lives? Start by filling out our foster application and we’ll be in touch with you shortly.
