I agree to abide by the terms and conditions below with respect to this foster application:
SAINT TO PROVIDE: SAINT will provide, at no charge to me, food and other supplies and any necessary medical care and any necessary socialization or training instructions for the foster animal(s).
FOSTER CARE VOLUNTEER TO PROVIDE: I will provide the foster animal(s) with responsible care, including: food, water, shelter and when instructed by SAINT, medication and/or training or socialization. I agree at all times to follow the instructions from SAINT with respect to the treatment and property handling of the animal.
MEDICAL OR AGE RELATED PLACEMENT: If the foster animal has been placed with me for medical reasons or due to the foster animal being of a young or old age, I understand the foster animal’s care may require daily medication or medical care, periodic veterinary visits and physical assessments with SAINT.
I agree to abide by the instructions of the veterinarian and/or SAINT with respect to the foster animal’s care, to provide careful supervision of the foster animal’s condition, to report any medical concerns to SAINT immediately, and to cooperate with SAINT with respect to transportation to the veterinarian. In the event of a medical emergency, I will immediately contact a SAINT representative and follow the instructions provided.
I agree I can decline to foster any pet at any time for any reason.
TRAINING & SOCIALIZATION:Animals in need of foster homes often have known and unknown behaviors. SAINT cannot always know what those behaviors will be. The basis for a foster home situation is for socialization, training and assessing the personality/behaviors of the foster pet.
The SAINT trainer and/or director of the Saving Lives Foster and Adoption Program will work closely with me to assess training needs and make suggestions to modify the behavior. I am willingly to give the foster animal a minimum of 48 hours in my home to assess behaviors before asking SAINT to remove the pet from my home unless there is a serious issues between my animals and the foster animal.
I agree to follow the training or behavioral/socialization instructions provided by SAINT’s trainer. I will maintain control over the foster animal at all times while in my care. I agree to meet with the trainer for periodic assessments of the foster animal if needed.
