On the second Saturday of the month at 10AM in the Basement Training Room, we will hold a Foster Training Session for both new and experienced fosters. It should last about an hour. You’ll learn about how fostering works, why it is a crucial part of helping animals in our community, what to do and what NOT to do with your foster animal. We will also go over new processes for vet care, how to tell when your foster animal needs medical attention and how we contact folks for fostering.

We will also cover how to care for bottle baby kittens, how to socialize puppies (yes, this is not rocket science, but there are some rules), how to work with feral cats, how to help shy dogs, how to keep your foster animals (and your own pets) safe, healthy and happy, and much more.

Come with questions and get to know your SPCA foster team!

Even if you have fostered before, come anyway! Your experience is invaluable and we’ll be recruiting for a foster mentor program too!

Contact Laura Jones at Ljones@caspca.org with questions. We’ll have handouts summarizing what we go over during the training session. Hope to see you all there!

“The single best week of my life.” - Allie, age 17

“My daughter came back from the retreat sort of transformed, in subtle ways. She seems more mature somehow, and she has a new clarity about what she wants from her life.” – Karin, parent

Inward Bound Mindfulness Education (iBme) is dedicated to improving the lives of teens, parents, and professionals. At iBme, we teach teens proven awareness & concentration practices that have been used for thousands of years. Teens learn how to settle a busy mind; how to skillfully handle emotions and thoughts; how to direct and sustain attention; how to cultivate compassion; and how to truly listen and communicate. Through mindfulness meditation, small group discussions, and fun workshop activities, participants experience a sense of connection & safety that many have never felt before.

At our teen mindfulness retreats, we offer teens, ages 14-19, an amazing opportunity to explore their body and mind through the practices of insight meditation; qi gong and yoga; delicious organic meals; and tools to deepen their listening and speaking skills through group mindfulness exercises and workshops in creative expression. These retreats are fun and transformational for teens and staff alike.

This summer’s teen retreat is being held at Sevenoaks Retreat Center, in Madison, Virginia, from Sunday, July 15 to Friday, July 20.

Opening ceremonies will kickoff the festivities at 6 p.m. Mineral will resonate with the sounds of a variety of live musical entertainment, family fun activities, concessions and a spirit of unity as individuals, businesses, civic clubs and churches come together to generate moral and financial support for Louisa's public schools and for families whose homes have been damaged or destroyed by the quake. "Louisa Cares" will close with a spectacular fireworks display at the stroke of midnight.
All donations to and proceeds from "Louisa Cares" will be shared by the Louisa Education Foundation and the Fluvanna/Louisa Housing Foundation, and directed to their respective "disaster relief" funds. Both monetary and in-kind donations are fully tax-deductible, and will be acknowledged as such.
