Operation Kindness launches new “Kindness on the Go” foster program

Kindness on the Go

Operation Kindness is excited to announce the launch of our innovative “Kindness on the Go” foster program. This unique program offers community members the opportunity to pick up a furry friend for a day of adventure, providing a much-needed break for dogs from the high-stress shelter environment.

A Day of Fun and Discovery

“Kindness on the Go” is designed to enrich the lives of both the dogs and the participants. Interested individuals can visit Operation Kindness to select a dog companion for a day. This program not only allows the dogs to experience a change of scenery but also helps gather valuable information about the dog’s behavior in a home-like environment, which can be crucial for their future adoption prospects.

How It Works

The client services team at Operation Kindness will assist interested participants by showing them available dogs, helping with the foster sign-up process and ensuring all necessary contracts are signed. At the time of pick-up, fosters will receive:

  • A harness and leash for safe and comfortable walks
  • Potty bags for easy clean-up
  • An “Adopt Me” bandanna to promote the dog’s availability for adoption
  • A detailed itinerary of pet-friendly activities and locations near Operation Kindness

Eligible Animals

For the safety and well-being of all animals, puppies are not eligible for the “Kindness on the Go” program due to the potential risks associated with exposure to new environments. Already available dogs and those that are awaiting space in the shelter holding areas will be able to participate in this program.

Join Us in Making a Difference

“We are thrilled to launch ‘Kindness on the Go’ and offer a new way for the community to engage with our dogs,” said Natalie Richter, Senior Director of Marketing and Communications at Operation Kindness. “This program is a win-win: our dogs get a break from the shelter, and participants get to enjoy a day with a wonderful companion while helping us learn more about the dog’s personality in different settings.”

Operation Kindness invites all animal lovers to participate in this program and help make a difference in the lives of shelter dogs. For more information or to sign up for the “Kindness on the Go” foster program, please visit our  foster webpage or contact the foster team.
