Foster agrees to contact Rescue immediately if the dog becomes ill or is missing. We recognize that dogs being dogs will occasionally make a run for the hills, so please let us know immediately if the dog is missing. Likewise, dogs do become ill and we need to know. Foster will provide fresh food, fresh water, and plenty of exercise daily. Foster agrees to always keep the foster dog within a fenced yard (not on a chain) or supervised on a leash; Foster agrees to never leave this dog outside when no one is home, to never allow the dog to be tied to a doghouse or to a chain, nor left unsupervised in a yard for extremely long periods. Foster agrees to provide updates to Rescue on the dog's progress. We want to know how you and the dog are doing. Foster agrees to always transport this dog in a safe manner and never loose in the open bed of a pick-up truck or in any other unsafe manner.
Foster agrees NOT to transfer custody of the animal to anyone other than Rescue and agrees to return the animal to Rescue upon demand.
Foster agrees to exercise normal care in maintaining the health of this animal.
Foster has been advised that foster animals can sometimes dig, chew, soil, and exhibit other undesirable traits. I understand that dogs are dogs and cats are cats and will do things that cannot be foreseen on occasion.
Foster has been advised that my foster animal may have been neglected, mistreated, or abused and that special care and precautions may be required. I also understand that the animal may need medical care which will be provided by Rescue. Rescue dogs frequently come in to rescue scared, underweight, and/or ill.
Foster has been advised that a foster animal will need time to adjust to new routines, new family and new surroundings. In addition, I am aware that the animal may need training in basic house manners.
Foster agrees to carefully introduce the new animal to the existing dogs and cats. Coming to a new home is stressful for the new animal and your existing animals. Careful introduction is a must. Your new animal needs time and space to adjust to the surroundings and your existing animals need to feel they are not being replaced or crowded. Introducing the new animal can result in growling, barking, submissive urination or other undesirable behavior. Properly managing the introductions is therefore important.
Foster agrees to follow instructions/advice given by rescue and veterinarian regarding quarantine, medication, feeding, socialization, etc.
In the event that the foster decides to no longer foster animals for AAVA, all supplies furnished by the rescue must be returned promptly.
