Do you agree to the following requirements for fostering?
FOSTER CARE AGREEMENT I, agree to act as temporary Foster home for Let Love Live Rescue and Sanctuary(herein known as LLL.) I agree to abide by the following conditions whenever fostering any animals for LLL. All animals entering foster care must have gone through LLL protocols prior to leaving LLL. 1. Any animal(s) fostered by me will be kept in a LLL-approved home. I understand that any animal(s) I foster is/are the property of LLL, and I agree to turn it/them over to LLL immediately upon request. I agree to bring any animal(s) fostered by me to the shelter for exams, vaccinations, weight checks, or other reason deemed necessary by LLL at a mutually agreed upon date and/or time. 2. I understand that I am responsible for adhering to all LLL standards of care and applicable local and state laws dealing with animal welfare. 3. I agree to a premises check upon the request of LLL which can include a visual inspection of the living quarters of all LLL foster animals in that environment and testing for transmissible disease. 4. Any animal(s) fostered by me will be fed, watered and exercised appropriately. I agree to provide an adequate and nutritious diet, including any necessary supplements, as recommended by LLL. LLL will provide food for my foster pet if needed. I also agree to abide by any instructions given by LLL regarding the feeding of specific brands or types of supplemental food and/or nutritional supplements to my foster animals. Although LLL will make every attempt to furnish additional items for those foster care volunteers who are unable to afford these supplies on their own, I understand that the availability of some supplies is based on donations from the public. 5. I will not allow any foster dogs or puppies to have any unsupervised off-leash time. I will provide a kennel, crate and/or securely fenced yard for their safety. I agree to transport any foster puppies and small dogs in a sturdy carrier. I agree to transport any foster animal(s) in an enclosed vehicle only, and I will not allow them to ride in the bed of a pickup or a convertible. 6. I agree that my foster will not be kept outside unless otherwise discussed and approved by LLL. 7. I understand that LLL will take every precaution to ensure that any animal(s) I foster are reasonably healthy and that any known health problems will be disclosed to me prior to my taking the animal into my home, but LLL cannot be held responsible for any unforeseen health problem that may develop after the animal(s) is/are in my care. I understand that LLL may require me to return my foster animal(s) to the shelter to assess or treat any health problem, at its discretion. 8. I understand that I am not authorized to seek outside veterinary care for LLL foster animals without approval from LLL staff or the LLL foster coordination team and may be dismissed from the foster program for doing so. If I choose to treat the animal(s) at a veterinarian of my choice, I understand that I will assume full responsibility for payment of the vet bill, and that LLL will be unable to reimburse me for any such payment. 9. I agree to provide adequate, positive socialization for any animal(s) fostered by me to help ensure their temperament will be as sound as possible. I also agree, when requested, to give a progress report to LLL. I agree to bring my foster animal(s) in to the shelter for any required vaccinations, de-worming, or other medication prescribed and provided by LLL at no cost to me. When the foster period is over, I will call LLL to return the animal(s), and will do so at the agreed upon time. 10. I agree to keep my foster animal(s) separate from my own pets, and that the possibility of foster animals fighting, injuring, or spreading illness to my own pets does exist. I agree that I will keep my own pet up to date on vaccines and de-wormers according to my own veterinarian, while I am fostering any animal(s) for LLL. I understand that if I choose to allow my foster animal(s) and my own pet(s) to have access to each other, I do so at my own risk, and will not hold LLL liable for any illness or injury that may occur to my own pet(s). 11. I agree to keep LLL animals safe from harm/illness as a result of contact with resident pets. 12. I understand the potential for contagious illness is high in animals. Therefore, I agree not to mix any of other litters of puppies or dogs without LLL consent. I also agree not to foster animals from any other organization while I am fostering for LLL, unless granted specific approval by LLL. 13.I understand that Foster Coordinators/ LLL staff have the right to limit the number of animals in my care at any given time. 14. I assume responsibility for any events that occur in connection with my fostering of an animal for LLL. I understand the possibility of my children or others being bitten, scratched, or contracting disease does exist. I agree to be responsible for my children and anyone else handling any animal(s) fostered by me in a safe and hygienic manner, and will not hold LLL responsible for any injuries that may result from my failure to do so. I AGREE TO NOTIFY A LLL REPRESENTATIVE IMMEDIATELY OF ANY BITES THAT BREAK THE SKIN that occur to any person or animal while any foster animal is in my care. 15. Any animal fostered by me is to be adopted to a permanent home only under the supervision of LLL, to an adopter approved by LLL, even if the adopter is me or a member of my household. All foster animals MUST be adopted through the LLL program following policy and procedure. I understand that if I find a suitable home for any animal that I am fostering, all of the above conditions must apply, and that the adopter must pay the adoption fee. 16. I understand that Let Love Live cannot and does not make any representations or warranties, either expressed or implied concerning the temperament, habits, health, pedigree, disposition, age, sex or background of this animal and that I have no right to a reimbursement of medical, adoption or other professional fees. Furthermore, I understand that the animal’s future reactions to me, my family or any other person are completely unpredictable because animals, like people, have their own personalities. 17. In consideration of receiving any LLL foster animal, I, as a foster caregiver, hereby release Let Love Live, its officers, agents and employees from all claims of injury or damage that a fostered dog/cat/other may cause me or my property. I agree to hold harmless, defend and indemnify Let Love Live, it’s officers, contract veterinarians, agents and employees from any and all claims of liability to my foster animals or persons for injuries or damage arising out of or in connection with services of this program or caused to them or their property by the animal(s) I am fostering through Let Love LiveRescue and Sanctuary. 18. If for any reason, I do not comply with all provisions of this agreement, I agree to return the fostered animal to Let Love Live upon demand of the enforcement agent. If I refuse to return the fostered animal to Let Love Live upon demand of the enforcement agent, I understand that LLL reserves the right to impound them as legal owner of the animal. 19. I acknowledge that a staff member has reviewed documented information about this animal with me and that I have received said documentation in writing. I am fostering with awareness of any documented medical or behavioral history. I have read and agree to the above terms
