YOUR PERFECT FOSTER POOCH:
Please read the following carefully:
AHDRNC determines the criteria for fostering, decides which animals are eligible for foster care, and appoints foster caregivers from a pre-approved list of trained providers. AHDRNC will require you to fill out a foster application, a Foster Care Agreement and attend a dog foster orientation prior to being accepted as a foster parent. AHDRNC foster care volunteers may always refuse any specific request for any reason. AHDRNC will inform you of any medical treatments to be administered, the anticipated length of the foster-care period if known, the objectives of each particular placement (restoring to health, rearing to adoptable age, socialization, etc, and any other restrictions or expectations we may have.
You will be expected to keep the animal safe and secure, return it to AHDRNC when requested to do so, and not promise the animal to anyone, or imply that you have the authority to approve a potential adoption. AHDRNC retains ownership of all animals placed in foster care and will make all decisions regarding the adoption & placement of the animals fostered.
AHDRNC cannot accommodate people fulfilling court-ordered community service within the Foster Care Program. AHDRNC does not accept into this program those convicted of violent crimes or crimes involving animal cruelty or neglect.
Unless otherwise arranged, the foster parent is responsible for providing all food, bedding and toys for the animal while it is in their care at home. The foster parent is responsible for transporting the animals to and from AHDRNC for veterinary appointments, surgery, behavior evaluations, vaccinations, etc. The foster parent may also be responsible for transporting the animal to and from adoption events and to off-site training classes. Upon returning your foster animal to AHDRNC you will be required to fill out a brief questionnaire about your foster animal's behavior and personality.
I have read and understand the statements above. I certify that all the information contained in this application is true and correct. I understand that although AHDRNC takes reasonable care to screen animals for foster care placement, it makes no guarantees relating to the animals' health, behavior or actions. I understand that I receive foster care animals at my own risk and can decline to accept any animal for which AHDRNC has asked me to provide care. I acknowledge that AHDRNC is not responsible for any property damage or personal injury suffered by me, members of my household, including my own animals, or any third parties during a foster placement, and I assume liability to provide adequate controls to prevent such damage or injury.
