FOSTER TURNOVER IS FRUSTRATING.
The study, Understanding Turnover of Foster Caregivers: Exploring the Reasons and Potential Solutions*, found that foster caregivers themselves identified five opportunities to prevent turnover:
feeling supported by the organization
feeling their input matters, and
feeling appreciated by the organization
All of these opportunities share one thing in common: they are the foundation for building great, lasting relationships. We can't solve all of these retention problems, but we can help you show your appreciation for your foster caregivers by saying thank you with a mug ☕️❤️

Adoptimize wants to help your organization recognize and celebrate your top fosters.
We will make and ship custom pet portrait mugs for three (3) of your fosters in the month of May, for free!
HOW IT WORKS
PICK 3 FOSTERS
Identify 3 fosters you’d like to recognize, based on any criteria that fits your shelter. For example, you could pick people who are the most active fosters, have been fostering with you the longest time, or have helped with hard behavioral issues.
SEND THEM AN EMAIL
In May, let your fosters know you’re celebrating them. Send your 3 fosters the template email we provide, which will include the promo codes and a link to the This My Foster Mug page. The goal of this email is to show your appreciation for their hard work (and have nothing expected in return).
WE MAKE AND SHIP MUGS
On our website, fosters upload their favorite picture of a pet (it can be their own, or a foster!) and provide their shipping details. We design and ship the mugs for them in the month of May. We’ll handle all the customer service, too.
* Offer valid from May 1, 2022 through May 31, 2022. One free mug per foster caregiver only. Maximum 3 foster caregivers per organization, one sign up per organization.
SIGN UP TO SEND FOSTERS MUGS
When the challenge starts in May, we'll send you a plug-and-play email template, your unique promo codes and a link to redeem This My Foster Mug page.
(coming summer 2022)
Our mission is to help animal shelters and rescues build great relationships with new adopters. We're in the age of personalization, and donors expect organizations to understand and connect with them in a way that makes them feel human. Nothing celebrates a meaningful connection better than a custom gift made just for you.
That's not to say we think we can solve animal shelters' most complex problems with mugs. We believe that people, nonprofits, and corporations need to work together to help each other. Recipawsity helps animal shelters start great relationships with adopters with a gift, and we believe people will pay-it-forward to the shelters.
