Terms & Conditions / Signature

    • Foster will provide fresh food, fresh water, and plenty of exercise daily.
    • Foster agrees that they will keep records for the foster dog, including a record which lists the dog's name, any preventive medications given (with date), and any vet care the dog may receive while in Foster's care
    • Foster agrees that they must contact the Rescue and receive authorization Before bringing a foster dog into a vet office or clinic for any procedures, vetting, medications or care.
    • Foster agrees to never leave the foster dog outside when no one is home, to never allow the dog to be tied to a doghouse or to a chain, nor left unsupervised in a yard for extremely long periods.
    • Foster understands that foster dogs can sometimes dig, chew, soil, and exhibit other undesirable traits.
    • Foster agrees to contact the Rescue immediately if the foster dog becomes ill or is missing. We recognize that dogs being dogs will occasionally make a run for the hills, so please let the Rescue know immediately if the dog is missing. Likewise, dogs do become ill and we need to know.
    • Foster understands that interactions between any child(ren) and the foster dog must be carefully supervised. Any dog in the Rescue is carefully screened, but dogs are dogs and unpredictable on occasion and especially in new surroundings.
    • Foster agrees that they will never leave any child alone or unsupervised with the dog.
    • Foster agrees to carefully introduce the foster dog to the existing dogs and cats in the foster home. Coming to a new home is stressful for the new dog and your existing animals. Careful introduction is a must. Your new dog needs time and space to adjust to the surroundings and your existing animals need to feel they are not being replaced or crowded. Introducing the new dog can result in growling, barking, submissive urination or other undesirable behavior. Properly managing the introductions is therefore important.
    • Foster understands that, should they decide to adopt their foster, they will pay the same adoption fee as adopters. Foster will send in the adoption contract and check to the rescue in a timely manner.
    • Foster understands that if they can no longer keep fostering the foster dog that they will need to contact their Foster Coordinator and will need to bring the dog to a new foster home.
    • Foster understands that the Rescue does not have paid employees and that everyone is a volunteer.
    • Foster agrees to conduct their self in a professional manner. This includes, but is not limited to, treating other Volunteers and Adopters with respect. Failure to do so will result in removal from the Rescue as a Foster.
    • Foster understands that the rescue does not warrant the temperament or behavior of the foster dog, and is not to be held liable for any acts of the foster dog while living at the foster home.
    • Foster agrees to release the Rescue and/or its members and volunteers from all liability, claims, and/or causes of action arising from any acts, injury and/or occurrences caused by the Foster dog.
    • Foster understands that if they fail to perform any of the above acts in which they have agreed to, that the Rescue may revoke this agreement and retake possession of the dog at any time without notice.
    I the Foster, herby certify that I have read this Foster Contract in full, and that I understand and agree to all of the terms and conditions.
