We request the following information in order to determine the best fit for you in our program.
This form and a consultation with a Helping Strays representative are designed to maximize the wellbeing of Helping Strays aminals.
Thank you for choosing to foster.
Helping Strays reserves the right to perform a home visit to ensure the safety of our animals and to refuse fostering to anyone.
No animal will be placed in the care of a foster family who mislead or fail to provide accurate information on this application.
THINGS TO CONSIDER:
*All animals will need to be returned to Helping Strays at the end of the foster care period.
*If you think you may be interested in adopting your foster, you will need to complete an adoption application during the first week of fostering. This does not commit you to adopting you foster, but will put you first in line.
*Animals brought into your home may have contagious diseases that can infect your own animals.
*Realize that foster animals may have behavioral issues that need to be corrected and for a time may be destructive.
*We will need frequent phone or email updates throughout the foster care period.
*Helping Strays staff, as well as other resources, are available when you need to ask questions.
*Would your work schedule allow you to take home an animal that may need medications during the day?
*Are you able to make trips to the veterinarian for appointments?
*You will receive email reminders of medical regimens due. You must watch for these reminders and schedule an appointment close to the due date.
*I CONFIRM ALL INFORMATION SUPPLIED IS TRUE AND CORRECT.
I ALSO UNDERSTAND THAT FOSTER TRAINING WILL BE PROVIDED FOR ME BEFORE I AM ABLE TO BEGIN FOSTERING ANIMALS FOR HELPING STRAYS.
I UNDERSTAND THAT HELPING STRAYS IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY PROPERTY OR PERSONAL DAMAGE, WOUNDS INFLICTED, OR ILLNESSES CAUSED BY THE FOSTER ANIMAL(S). COMPLETION OF THIS APPLICATION DOES NOT NECESSARILY GUARANTEE ACCEPTANCE IN THE PROGRAM.
