By agreeing to foster in partnership with Dallas Pets Alive!, I agree to the following:
Pet's Health and Disposition
Dallas Pets Alive! cannot guarantee the health or disposition of any foster animal. We do not have past records for these animals and there are some risks associated with taking in foster animals. Family pets will be current on all shots and foster pets will be kept isolated from family pets, for a minimum of seven days for the protection of all animals. I agree to be fully responsible for the safety and well being of the foster pet. I will provide a safe, loving, humane environment with adequate food water and shelter at all times. I will not declaw, crop ears, or crop tail of fostered pet. I will adhere to all state and local animal laws. I will promptly notify Dallas Pets Alive! of any signs of illness, behavioral issues or concerns, an inability to continue to foster, if the pet become lost, and/or if the pets bites someone. If I take the fostered pet to an unauthorized vet, without the consent of Dallas Pets Alive! I am responsible for any expenses incurred.
Transfer of Animals
Animals cannot be transferred to the custody of another person, shelter, humane society, SPCA, or other entity without prior consent and permission of Dallas Pets Alive! I agree to not place this pet in another home without the written or verbal authorization from Dallas Pets Alive!, whether it be temporary or permanent.
Return of Animals
All the pets in the Dallas Pets Alive! foster program are the property of Dallas Pets Alive! and must be returned within 24 hours of request. I agree that I am fostering this pet for Dallas Pets Alive! and that I do not have any right of ownership over my foster animal. I further agree that the rights of Dallas Pets Alive! in and to my foster pet are superior to mine. I agree to provide the Authorized Representative, or his/her designate, access to my home and property to check on my foster pet at any time while I am in possession of my foster pet.
Personal or Property Damage and/or Injury
I agree that accidental animal bites or other injuries to humans and other animals do occur, and agree to hold harmless and indemnify and protect Dallas Pets Alive! from any claim or suit filed by someone as a result of such incident.
In addition, Dallas Pets Alive! will not be responsible if an animal should damage or destroy property belonging to Foster Caregiver, Foster Caregiver household, or others, or if the animal shall transfer any disease, internal or external parasites to other animals and people in the Foster Caregiver household.
I understand that if I am approved for fostering, this declaration represents a legal contract between me as the foster home caregiver and Dallas Pets Alive! I understand that if I am approved to foster an animal, I must abide by this agreement, and that this agreement applies to any and all animals that I foster with Dallas Pets Alive!
Accuracy of Information
By signing above, I acknowledge that the information provided on this application is correct to the best of my knowledge. If at any time the information I have provided changes, I will provide the updated information to the Dallas Pets Alive! Foster Care Program.
I understand that I will foster my animal(s) until they are adopted unless an emergency occurs; where at that time a transfer to another foster would occur. (please note that the transfer will not be immediate as it takes time to find additional fosters).
