P4P agrees to:
Provide necessary veterinary care for fostered animal.
Either party may terminate this agreement with notice. P4P is an all-foster based rescue organization, we will be responsible for placing, within 7 days, any fosters you deem you can no longer keep. A foster is defined as any animal that P4P has placed with you. Any animals that you bring into the program (strays you find, shelter pulls you opt to do, etc.) will become your own responsibility if you default as a foster. P4P agrees to list the animals, provide adoption venues (when applicable), and pay vet bills (as long as by an approved vet for expenses approved by P4P).
Q: if I pay for medical items how do I get reimbursed?
A: You must provide a copy of itemized receipt to Briana and/or Brittany and we will reimburse you for the cost of APPROVED medical cost within one day.
Q: Why do all these dogs go to Minnesota?
A: Briana lived in Minnesota until she was 26, and was involved with multiple non-profit animal organizations while living there. After moving to Texas for work, she began to really get involved with Texas shelters and rescues where she met Brittany. It was then that they discovered the dire need for animals in Texas and worked hard to develop a plan for placement so that these really GREAT DOGS & CATS who are marked for euthanasia can be saved. The deplorable shelter conditions in Texas are not seen in Minnesota where strays and overbreeding has been non-issue. Many believe this has to do with stronger laws for spay and neuter in the Northern states, also demographics/culture in general, and additionally the harsh winter weather. As a group, we do try to get as many pets out of Texas as there are homes for them in Minnesota. There are other rescue coordinators that are helping the same way as P4P does for Texas dogs to move large quantities to Washington and Massachusetts by the bus-loads, as well.
Q: What should I expect on the day I say goodbye to my foster pet?
A: Typically, 2-3 days prior to transport departure, Briana will send a reminder to all Fosterer’s to update the departure information. Here is the typical time and meeting place for all departures (close to I-35 for the driver who comes from Houston, and drives the dogs by van to MN). Animal Boarding of Farmers Branch parking lot; 14021 denton drive, usually meeting between 10- 1pm. The exact time is always updated 2-3 days prior to departure as the driver is usually only in Farmers Branch for 20-40 minutes before leaving to MN. Fosterers who cannot meet transport due to work, will notify P4P so we can arrange a volunteer to step up for this. Every dog needs to have paperwork with a current Rabies vaccine and Distemper/Parvo vaccine as well as a leash. Melissa drives a large white passenger van. She and I have worked together for 4 years now, and she is a very trustworthy and reliable driver. I trust her with ALL dogs and cats
Q: What happens if my foster pet gets to Minnesota and doesn’t get adopted?
A: All dogs will be fostered in Minnesota through their respective rescue organization UNTIL they are adopted. It doesn’t matter if this takes 5 years, or 1 week, that is what rescue does. No animals are euthanized if they aren’t adopted quickly enough. All animals will have a background check done, a home-visit, and a basic adoption application to get to know the adopter - rest assured, these animals WILL find homes.
Q: Where exactly is my foster animal going when
he/she arrives to Minnesota?
A: Currently, P4P’s rescue network reaches NINE different nonprofit organizations in Minnesota and one in Wisconsin who have the same passion for saving lives. The rescues will receive their respective pet straight off of transport where they will be seen by a veterinary team to examine their overall health. They will be treated for heartworm disease, spayed/ neutered, booster vaccines, microchipped, and fecal exams. They will eventually be trained for any behavioral issues they may have (timid/fearful, food aggression, toy-possessive). These are all non-profit 501c3 rescue organzations working to save dogs on little to no donations.
