We have volunteers who help with our online content and other marketing. They take pictures of the dogs and cats and maintain the website, Facebook and other adverts for pet adoption.
Adoption Day at Kfar Saba Park Every Saturday 10am – 2pm
Every week our big event is Saturday Adoption Day in the park. Dozens of volunteers help to make this event possible. Our adoption days are well known throughout the region and even the country, and draw potential adopters because they are aware of our reputation for excellence in caring for our animals. We bring all our adoptable dogs for several hours to the park. They each sit in their own spot, with a mat and water bowl, protected from the sun, accompanied by their own volunteer who can talk about the dog's temperament and needs. We have coordinators who walk around helping adopters find the right dog for their family, and every Saturday we are proud to help the dogs under our care find homes.
Of course, we are careful to screen each potential adopter to ensure that this is the right fit for the dog, and that the adopter is ready to be a dog guardian. Our coordinators speak with the adopters at length, and we also have trainers on hand who can add his or her advice.
The hospital takes care of injured and sick cats, and cats recovering from surgery and spaying/neutering. Volunteers are needed to take care of the cats and see to their medical needs. We train the volunteers – all they need to bring is their love of cats.
Foster homes play a critical role in preparing our dogs for adoption. We receive many dogs who simply could not survive the emotional ordeal of waiting for adoption in a cage at the shelter, no matter how well they are taken care of. These dogs are often emotionally fragile, frightened or extremely anxious, and need the comfort and stability of a home. Our foster homes take in these dogs and love them like they are family, helping them to develop the confidence they need to embark on a happy new life in an adoptive home. No dog is adopted before we feel he is ready and we have found the right family to meet his needs.
