Fill out the form below. Please complete all sections of it.
By completing this form, I attest that I am a legal adult over 18 years of age, and that I understand and agree to the following: I agree to provide a foster home for assigned pet. I agree to notify the organization immediately before I take another animal into my home. I agree to keep my personal animals current with all vaccinations as recommended by the AVMA or my veterinarian. Rabies vaccination and proof of adequate DA2PPV is mandatory. I agree to keep a tag with my own contact phone number on the foster pet for the entire foster period. If provided, I will also keep a PNH/BFAS Identification tag and/or microchip tag on the pet.
A limit of two (2) foster pets may be fostered at the same time by the same person. There may be exceptions as approved by PNH/BFAS for example a mother dog with litter of puppies or sibling puppies, or an emergency foster situation. I consent to PNH/BFAS doing home checks prior to and during the care of the foster pet. I will notify PNH/BFAS via phone and email immediately if I am changing residences so that a new home inspection may be completed at my new address in advance of the move.
The foster pet will be under my supervision always. The foster pet will not remain overnight in the care of anyone other than myself, an immediate adult family member at the same address, veterinarian, or a PACFA licensed boarding facility. The foster animal being housed anywhere other than the address provided at the time of the home visit will be grounds for immediate termination of the foster contract and the foster dog will be immediately returned to a staff member.
I will bring my foster to a minimum of two adoption events per month and will continue to bring my pet to as many adoption events as possible until my foster pet is adopted. I will notify the adoption event coordinator if I need help transporting my pet to or from an event or appointment. If events are not available, I agree to transport my foster dog to a neutral location for meet and greets with potential adopters.
If the foster pet is a dog, I agree to keep it on leash always while outside my home. I will not allow the dog to roam freely at any time, even for potty breaks. I will NOT take my foster pet to any play groups or dog parks. Going to Camp Bow Wow, working with a trainer, or coming to a PNH/BFAS adoption event are the exceptions. If the foster pet is a dog that will go to work with me, I agree to ensure the dog behaves appropriately in an office setting.
I will read and familiarized myself with the foster pet's file. I will understand the foster pet's specific needs and have been educated on the proper ways of working with this foster pet's special needs. If the foster pet requires behavioral training, I will cooperate with PNH/BFAS in scheduling and coordinating training sessions. I will assist in POSITIVE TRAINING METHODS ONLY based on American Kennel Club (AKC) Canine Good Citizen (CGC) or AKC Puppy Star for basic household manners. I will review all AKC authored CGC videos on YouTube and practice these with my foster animal.
I understand that all foster pets shall be provided with a secure area, including shelter from the elements. Foster pets are not to be kept tied or chained. All foster pets should be indoor family pets. Foster pets will not remain in cars unattended or unsupervised for extended periods of time, especially during cold or hot weather. Foster pets should be transported in approved kennels or wear seatbelts when in a vehicle.
*I will call PNH/BFAS at 631-740-6074 for veterinary care should the foster pet become ill or injured. I will notify PNH/BFAS immediately via phone and email if my foster animal becomes lost or stolen. I will take the foster animal to all scheduled vet appointments (spay/neuter, etc.) or notify PNH/BFAS within 48 hours if I cannot keep a scheduled vet appointment. Except in case of emergency, I will obtain PNH/BFAS approval for obtaining veterinary care at a Pre-Approved Veterinary Clinic. I understand that the current clinic choices are: #1 Ponderosa Veterinary Clinic (719) 433-7671 6770 Foxtrot Ln b, Colorado Springs, CO 80924. #2 (ONLY if you already called Ponderosa first) Black Forest Veterinary Clinic (719) 481-9126 2655 Black Forest Rd #118, Colorado Springs, CO 80908. Banfield Locations with pre-approval only. PNH/BFAS will be responsible for the cost of care ONLY at a Pre-Approved Veterinary Clinic with approval from the foster coordinator or director.
The representations contained in the foster application are incorporated herein by reference and PNH/BFAS is relying on those representations in entering into this agreement. This agreement is the entire agreement between PNH/BFAS and the foster parent, superseding any prior understandings between the parties with respect to the subject matter of this Agreement. No modification of this agreement will be valid unless in writing and duly signed by PNH/BFAS and the foster. This agreement is binding upon the heirs, assigns, successors, personal representatives, and executors of both parties. If I wish to terminate this agreement, I will notify PNH/BFAS immediately to arrange for the foster pet's return to PNH/BFAS. I understand that there may be a waiting period while we find another foster.
I will ensure compliance with all applicable local ordinances, zoning and HOA and state statutes regarding possession of a foster dog or rules of ownership of Pet. If I am charged with violating any such ordinance or statute while in possession of foster pet, I understand that PNH/BFAS is not responsible for obtaining legal counsel for me or for paying any fines or penalties assessed.
I hereby release PNH/BFAS, its Board of Directors, and volunteers, and veterinarians, from any claim, cause of action, or liability for any injury or damage to self, persons, or property once the pet is in my foster care. PNH/BFAS does not guarantee the health or mental health/behavior of any foster pet and is not financially responsible for any illness or injury caused to current pets in household or any other persons, pets, or property.
I acknowledge that the foster pet remains the property of PNH/BFAS. If I fail to return the foster pet to PNH/BFAS at the end of the foster period, PNH/BFAS will notify me by phone first of the reclamation and ask that the animal be returned. If the animal is in such a circumstance to endanger its health, well-being, or life, PNH/BFAS may recover the pet immediately or call animal control authorities to recover the animal on behalf of PNH/BFAS. Any decision of PNH/BFAS is final as to whether the pet will be returned to me.
Any violation of the terms of this agreement shall be grounds for immediate termination of said agreement, and the foster pet shall be immediately surrendered to PNH/BFAS. This agreement may be terminated with or without cause at the sole discretion of PNH/BFAS.
