Our Team

PFP has opted out of the generic shelter management system many use and instead we manage our foster base by implementing a Team Leader system. Each Team Leader is responsible for a team of 8-16 foster families. We developed the TL system in 2016 to solve a communication issue that we found was prevalent in the non-profit sector. The Team Leaders serve as the hub of communication for each of their fosters by offering direction, supervision, and support to the foster families, while also placing each dog on their team into a forever family. Team Leaders are responsible for creating content with the fosters families in order to "market" the dogs and bring each of their unique qualities to the forefront of our adoption program. The Team Leaders, foster families, and all of our different leads make PFP the success it is and we could not do what we do without everyone who is involved!
