By sending this electronically, I acknowledge that I have completely read this questionnaire and comprehend it fully.
I understand that applying does not ensure approval and that untruthful answers or failure to comply with the requirements of this application can result in the forfeiture of any HEAR NO EVIL animal fostered by me.
I certify that the above information is correct, and I understand that the information will be verified.

The foster carer is responsible for the day to day love and care of the dogs, but the dog remains the legal property of HEAR NO EVIL.
Foster carers CAN NOT give away, sell, surrender to another organisation, or have the dog euthanised. Doing so will result in legal action.
I will notify HEAR NO EVIL within 7 days of any change to my contact details recorded above.

I accept full responsibility for the dog(s) actions at all times and release HEAR NO EVIL from any liabilities or damages that may be incurred because of fostering such dog(s).
Conditions of Care:
I agree to accept the animal in its current condition, health and behaviour.
I agree to maintain and house the animal in conditions explained to me by HEAR NO EVIL. The animal will become a member of our family and as such will be cared for with the comforts of home.
The information I have provided to HEAR NO EVIL as to the property on which the animal is to be housed, and my ability to maintain the animal in proper health, is true and not misleading in any way.
I agree not to house the dog at an alternative location or pass the dog into the care of another person, without the express consent of HEAR NO EVIL.
I agree not to take the dog out of the designated region without the express consent of HEAR NO EVIL.
I understand that HEAR NO EVIL may inspect the property on which the animal is to be housed (before and during) to ensure the animal’s safety and security and as a result of this inspection I may be requested by Hear No Evil to return the animal. In this instance I agree to return the animal requested to HEAR NO EVIL at a mutually convenient time and place.
I agree to continue monthly heartworm and flea treatment (due 1st day of every month), and quarterly gastro-intestinal worming treatment. (Where donations are available they will be passed on for foster carers use).
The dog will, at all times, wear a collar with an identification tag attached. Check Chain Collars are not permitted.
The dog will not be allowed off my property or allowed in any unsecured area without a collar and lead (Off-leash exercise in fully fenced dog parks is ok).

I agree to follow any instructions given by HEAR NO EVIL or HEAR NO EVIL's authorised vet in regards to health treatments for the dog.

I agree to make the dog promptly available for a meet and greet at a mutually agreeable time and location, and I agree to actively participate in the adoption process if required.
I agree that I will make the dog available at any adoption days, photoshoots or events where possible.
I understand that should another party be interested in adopting the dog, I may apply to keep the dog however this is subject to the terms and conditions of adoption, and payment of the full adoption fee for the dog.
Return of dog:
I agree to return the dog to HEAR NO EVIL upon request.
If during the Fostering Period I feel the animal is unsuitable for any reason I will contact my Foster Coordinator and arrange a mutually convenient time to return him/her to HEAR NO EVIL. I will try to give HEAR NO EVIL a 2 week period to try and find another suitable foster for the dog(s).
I indemnify HEAR NO EVIL, its directors, employees and volunteers for any liability, costs or expenses which arise as a result of my actions or omissions (including negligence) or the animal’s condition, health and behaviour while the animal is in my care.
