Hi! Amy Mills from Seattle Area Feline Rescue in Shoreline, WA
Carrie Finch
56:06
Hoping this will include tips for dog fosters as well!
Brenna Jennings
56:32
The tips will definitely translate a lot of the time, Carrie!
Carrie Finch
56:45
Thanks brenna!
Olivia Melikhov
58:13
Von - yes, they will be!
Brenna Jennings
01:00:27
The slides and recording of this webinar will be posted and registrants will be alerted when those are available, so don’t worry if you miss any info!
Brenna Jennings
01:04:34
Tip: Try to keep forms limited to only the critical info you need, you can capture more in a conversation with applicants. Get them in the door easily, then learn more
Olivia Melikhov
01:05:53
Amberly - here is our application: https://app.smartsheet.com/b/form?EQBCT=655241595dd04173b99927dbf9c6cfcf
Olivia Melikhov

TIP: Include the online orientation sign-up as part of the foster application.

yes ty!
Brenna Jennings
01:08:24
Note that questions in chat that aren’t addressed will be surfaced by Olivia or me during QA
Olivia Melikhov
01:13:08
Stephanie - you can add questions for closed Facebook Groups before accepting the members. It might be helpful to have a questions about whether they have fostered or are *interested* in fostering. If they are interested, it may be worth adding them as a prospect for the future
Amanda Coburn
01:15:01
Um, how cute are the names Yanny and Laurel for a pair of kittens?!
Brenna Jennings
01:15:09
Thanks Von, noted!
Olivia Melikhov
01:15:11
Stephanie - feel free to email me after the webinar if you have further questions. Olivia.Melikhov@aspca.org :)
Aine Doley
01:15:57
Do we get a copy of the presentation pdf after?
Brenna Jennings
01:16:17
There will be a recording and slides for download following the webinar - you’ll be alerted when they’re ready
Olivia Melikhov
01:17:08
Von - the swipe up feature is for accounts with 10K+ followers are you say. If you have under 10K, we recommend including the URL in your Instagram bio and telling people to visit the link in bio to sign up to foster

Thank you!
Darlene Papa
01:18:00
What’s the dif between a boosted post and a paid ad? A boost still costs money.
Olivia Melikhov
01:18:50
Darlene - they are both paid ads. Boosted posted are easier to set up but have less targeting and analytics options
Olivia Melikhov
01:19:13
Erin - check out https://www.facebook.com/blueprint
Darlene Papa
01:19:20
I see. Thanks.
Olivia Melikhov
01:19:51

01:20:58
not common
jholeman
01:20:58
Once someone fills out a registration form, how long before they get kittens?
Olivia Melikhov
01:21:11
Lindsay - I have had more luck with very targeted pitches
Shelby Backhus
01:21:17
We take cats and dogs to media outlets every week.

our insurance covers volunteers with the animals out and about
Darlene Papa
01:21:51
I’ve been wanting to sign up for Instagram, but not sure how. Also, what does a hashtag do or is used for ?
Stacey Richolson
01:22:54
with going live, is it best to have captions? I find people don't turn up volume and hear what you say.
Brenna Jennings
01:23:02
The presentation slides and recording will be emailed to the group once it’s posted following the webinar. Stay tuned!
Carrie Finch
01:23:29

All of our pets are adults- is it ok to use #meowfornow for non-kittens?
Brenna Jennings

Yes! The hashtag will keep all your stories collected and identify you as part of the Meow For Now campaign
Brenna Jennings
