TIMELINE:
  • At 11:45 AM, all participants meet at The Gate to kick off the event. Independent participants (who didn’t register with a team) will be put on a team when they arrive. Everyone gets a pair of neon sunglasses, and each dog receives a handmade bandana!
  • From The Gate, everyone will get their first clue and will walk to the next locations, eating and drinking and having fun along the way.
  • Festivities conclude at The Gate at 1:45/2:00 PM, where prizes will be given out to winners, and you'll have a chance to meet the adoptable dogs.
  • If you cannot participate in the scavenger hunt, please come to The Gate between 12:45 – 2:00 to show your support!
  • At our closing ceremony, we will present prizes to our winners. Dog goodies, awesome gift cards, edible treats, and more!! There will be two winning teams: MOST MONEY RAISED, & FASTEST TIME.

About Foster Dogs NYC

Foster Dogs NYC has been promoting fostering and adoption since 2009. We are run by a small group of volunteers who donate their time and professional skills to this cause. www.fosterdogsnyc.com
Our organization's goal is to facilitate the foster process with shelters and rescue groups around the NYC area. We also organize animal rescue events, provide education about fostering, and help animal shelters improve their online presence.

How your donations will help Foster Dogs NYC:

EACH TEAM is urged to collectively raise $300 to help provide foster care to a dog in need! www.gofundme.com/psdogdash
  • 'Fospice' program: Foster Dogs NYC provides funding to a rescue group to support an end-of-life long-term foster home. This is particularly beneficial to elderly shelter dogs.
  • Raise money for a "foster fund" providing financial support to rescue groups and foster homes in need
  • Run adoption awareness events to increase dog rescue rates
  • Develop more programs to increase foster and adoption awareness and success, we welcome suggestions and ideas
Foster Dogs NYC recently became incorporated as Foster Dogs, Inc., and we will soon become a 501(c)(3) organization! While we are not yet a registered nonprofit corporation, 100% of proceeds are put towards our mission: to facilitate animal fostering and adoption.
