Thank you for becoming a foster home for MAMCO Rescue! All the dams and litters that we rescue are placed
into approved foster homes where they can be cared for and evaluated, while they whelp, nurse, raise, and wean their puppies. It is because of hard working volunteers like yourself, that we can save animals in need. The following information is an overview of our Policies and Procedures. For more detailed information, please
reference the MAMCO Rescue Foster Handbook on mamcorescue.org.
Financial Obligation: MAMCO Rescue
pays for all food, supplies, medications, and necessary veterinary care for our fosters. Health Certificates: Upon intake, dams are vaccinated and dewormed. Except for the rabies vaccine, which cannot be administered to pregnant or nursing dogs, foster dogs have a complete health certificate. On occasion dogs will need extra deworming medications, which are provided by MAMCO Rescue. Fosters will be responsible for taking the dam to be spayed following the weaning of her litter. In addition, fosters are responsible for transporting foster dogs to receive needed veterinary care. The foster home will also be responsible for monitoring the rehabilitation of the dog(s) and administering any prescribed medications. ALL VETERINARY APPOINTMENTS MUST BE APPROVED BY ARON, MARCIE, KATIE, or ROBERT PRIOR TO HAVING THE ANIMAL SEEN. Fosters are liable for veterinary care in the absence of prior approval. Aron (303)517-0586, Foster Phone (720)614-8147, In the event of an emergency (i.e. a dam needs an emergency C-section) and we cannot be reached, a foster should not delay in seeking medical care. Fosters should obtain a copy of the bill either for payment to the veterinarian, or reimbursement to the foster home. In all non-emergent cases, veterinary care should be worked out prior to the appointment. Care of Dog: Foster homes are responsible for: • Keeping the foster dogs’ safe, and keeping others safe from the foster dog • While we try not to take dogs with a past bite history, new reactions cannot always be predicted. In the event of a bite, you must report to both MAMCO and the local authorities • Take care to ensure that the dog is not placed in stressful situations • Please see the MAMCO Handbook for advice on integrating new animals into your home. Feeding: Food will be provided by MAMCO. Sometimes food aggression is an issue. We find that allowing dogs to free feed is the best way to build trust. If the bowl is always full, there is no need to fight for scraps. On occasion, we will have a dog that overeats, in this instance feeding twice per day is best. Housing: MAMCO believes that providing dogs with a safe area is of the utmost importance. For some dogs, crates training is great, for others, not so much. We suggest trying crate training, but do not encourage you to force a dog into a crate, especially a pregnant dam. Pregnant dams should not be left to roam the house. Nesting instinct in dogs can cause them to be quite destructive. Unless you want your foster dog to burrow into your couch and deliver puppies, we suggest that you find a sparse room to house the dam and her puppies. We will provide you with a swimming pool whelping area and plenty of towels and blankets. After a dam gives birth it is very important that she be allowed to leave her puppies if she needs to. NEVER LOCK A DAM IN A CRATE WITH HER PUPPIES. This is dangerous for all involved. Once the puppies are old enough to escape the pool, we recommend using a puppy playpen that is short enough for the dam to come and go, but tall enough to keep the puppies inside. MAMCO will provide playpens as needed. At NO time, shall the foster dog be tethered or unattended outside, or ride in the back of an open bed truck. Adoption Process: Some fosters want to be actively involved in the adoption process, others do not. We respect your help and do not want to overstep; however, there are a few key things we need from you to facilitate the adoption. We need: Information on the dam (is she good with dogs, cats, kids? Is she timid, playful, anxious? How is she on a leash? Potty training progress? etc.) Successful matches are easier to make when we understand the needs and personality of the animal. Photographs of the dam and her puppies, the cuter the pictures the better! Videos are great too. If you aren’t a photographer we can have someone come over for a photo shoot. Deworming and medication records: Write down the dates and dosages of dewormer treatments and prescription medications for the medical records. MAMCO will list the dogs on a variety of websites and will screen the initial applications. Fosters have the right to make final decisions regarding adopters. Meet and Greets: Meet and greets can take place either at the applicant’s home, the foster home, or a neutral location if all applicants are present.
Please indicate the number of permanent animals that reside at your home. This includes cats, dogs and horses and other livestock
Please indicate that you understand and agree to the following:
Your personal pets can carry deadly viruses if they are not properly vaccinated. These viruses do not necessarily present with symptoms, but can be deadly to a pregnant and nursing dam and her puppies.
Please indicate that you understand and agree to the following:
You must provide proof of vaccinations at the time of the home visit. Failing to disclose this information or failing to have your pets vaccinated is a breach of contract. If your dogs are not properly vaccinated and any rescue dogs contract an illness from your personal dogs while in your care, you will be responsible for the veterinary costs associated with their care.
Please indicate that you understand and agree to the following:
We appreciate your commitment to foster and understand that sometimes fosters are unable to fulfill their commitment due to outside circumstances. Should you decide to stop fostering for any reason, you agree to provide MAMCO with seven days notice in writing. We cannot pick up and find a replacement foster on the same day. Should you fail to give us seven days notice, you will be responsible for the boarding costs of all foster dogs for the remaining days. This averages $50 per day, per dog.
I understand that MAMCO does not have the ability to predict every situation that will arise regarding the health, personality, behavior, and/or appearance of the rescued dog(s). I understand that actions taken on my part to slander or libel MAMCO publicly or privately due to factors about the dog(s) which could not reasonably be predicted prior to placing in foster care will result in legal action. I agree to make every attempt to work with MAMCO to resolve issues in lieu of publicizing negative reviews or comments. I understand that MAMCO takes its relationships with fosters very seriously. I understand that MAMCO will work towards a peaceful resolution in accordance with all the terms outlined in this contract. By initialing this box you agree that you have read and understand the terms above.
I agree to adhere to MAMCO Rescue’s policies
I understand that if I choose to adopt a foster dog that I will be responsible for the full adoption fee of the dog. Long term fosters (those who have fostered for 6 months or more) will receive a discounted adoption fee, but those fostering short term will be expected to pay the full fee. Please initial that you have read and understand this part of the agreement.
I agree not to foster for any other organization while I have MAMCO fosters in my home.
