By fostering an animal from the Brooklyn Animal Foster Network, you're opening up a space for an otherwise doomed animal. We thank you.






Community Service Credits for Students


One mission of BAFN is to foster an interest in animals for youth. We take pride in providing students with opportunities for career exploration, self-discovery, personal development and community service.



The most obvious benefit of participation, of course, is that students get to work with animals! Participants are specially trained to handle many of the small animals in the Brooklyn Animal Foster Network. What's more, participation often fulfills a student's community service requirements. Some of our participants have received community service credit for their work with us. (Students should check with their school to determine whether BAFN participation meets this requirement.)



  • Volunteers needing community service credit for school must agree to complete a minimum of 48 hours per year.
  • Volunteers are expected to maintain excellent attendance, punctuality and conduct.
  • Volunteers must be at least 13 years of age to participate.
  • A signed permission form must be provided by your parents if you are under the age of 18.
  • Duties may include taking dogs for walks, socializing kittens, cleaning dishes and crates and more.
