Foster-At-Home Application

 

Thank you for your interest in fostering for Angelico Cat Rescue. This is a questionnaire to help you communicate with us what you are interested in doing, and also the Foster Agreement so you know what our expectations are, and what you can expect from us.

Please remember that Angelico Cat Rescue rescues animals from many different situations. Some are coming out of a shelter environment, some have been mistreated and abused, and others may have never lived in a home before. All animals will need some time of adjustment into a new foster home, but your honesty on this form will help us match you up with a pet that will suit your home and potential limitations and/or strengths.

Unless otherwise discussed, Angelico Cat Rescue asks that our foster parents keep their foster animals until we find them a forever home (except in cases of emergency). Depending on the adoptability of the animal, we expect this to take 2‐4 weeks (except in the case of neonates, which need to reach 8 weeks before they can be adopted). If the foster does not think the animal is a good match for their home, they agree to keep the animal in their care while Angelico Cat Rescue finds new placement for the animal.
Are you comfortable with these expectations? *
As an Animal Foster Volunteer, you will be responsible for providing adequate food and fresh water, socialization, attention, affection, and a close eye on the animal's health. If we have donated food or if providing food yourself will create a hardship for you, we will be happy to provide food or provide reimbursement. For reimbursement, Animal Foster Volunteer must seek approval before purchase and save then submit receipts.
Do you understand these requirements? *
If you wish to foster a cat and have a resident cat, please confirm that your pet cat is over 16 weeks and up to date on vaccines. *
Are the pets in your home spayed/neutered? *
Some animals will require special care. *
Please check the boxes of the level of care you are comfortable providing.
Angelico Cat Rescue always does home visits for their foster parents to ensure it is a safe environment for the pet. This will be done before you get your foster pet, or at the time of receiving your pet.
Do you agree to this home visit *
FOSTER AGREEMENT ( Please read carefully before selecting your answer.)
Angelico Cat Rescue will be allowed to reasonably inspect the premises in which the animal(s) will be maintained or are maintained, from time to time, for the purpose of determining the suitability of those premises for the care and maintenance of the animal(s). *
If you decide to become a "foster failure" and adopt your foster animal, in the best interests of the animal and the rescue, you will be required to follow the standard adoption approval process and pay the standard adoption fee.
Do you agree? *
You agree to surrender the foster animal(s) to Angelico Cat Rescue when a permanent adoptive home is found. While foster parents’ input is valued and solicited regarding prospective homes, Angelico Cat Rescue will ultimately approve or disapprove all prospective adopters. If a friend or acquaintance is interested in adopting your foster animal, they are required to follow the standard adoption approval process (application, home visit, etc) and pay the standard adoption fee. *

Depending on the adoptability of the animal, we expect this to take 2‐4 weeks. If the foster does not think the animal is a good match for their home, they agree to keep the animal in their care while Angelico Cat Rescue finds new placement for the animal. Are you comfortable with these expectations? *
As an Animal Foster Volunteer, at my own expense, I agree to provide proper and sufficient food and water, shelter, socialization and kind treatment. I agree to feed proper and sufficient food and water, bathe/groom, exercise, and socialize the foster animal(s) as appropriate. I agree to never hit, kick or abuse the animal in any way. I understand that I shall not leave the animal(s) unsupervised outside, and shall comply with all city, state and federal laws relating to animals. I also understand that I shall provide the above‐described services without monetary compensation from the Angelico Cat Rescue. *
Should your foster animal display any signs of injury (regardless of how minor it is perceived to be) or illness (regular coughing or sneezing, diarrhea, vomiting), we ask that you notify Angelico Cat Rescue immediately so we can determine if the animal needs medical care. Do you agree? *
I agree to contact Angelico Cat Rescue immediately, and provide transportation at any time, should veterinary medical care be needed for the animal(s). Angelico Cat Rescue works with veterinarians that are familiar with shelter/rescue medicine. If the foster animal needs medical care of any kind, I have the option to contact Angelico Cat Rescue immediately and to follow their instructions. Foster animals may go to a foster parent’s personal vet at the cost of the parent. Angelico Cat Rescue cannot be responsible for vet costs at unapproved veterinarians. *
I agree to hold harmless Angelico Cat Rescue, its Board of Directors, their successors, heirs or assigns, any agent carrying out duties on behalf of Angelico Cat Rescue, and any and all participating persons who might be claimed to be liable, whether or not herein named, from any and all actions, causes of action, lawsuits, claims and demands which I now have or may hereafter have, arising out of, or in any way relating to, any and all injuries and damages, to both person and property, and also any and all injuries and damages that may develop in the future, as a result of or in any way relating to my participation as a Angelico Cat Rescue volunteer or foster home. *
I fully understand that Angelico Cat Rescue makes no guarantees whatsoever as to the health, temperament, mental disposition and training of the animal(s) and understand that Angelico Cat Rescue makes no representations or guarantees about any animal’s temperament and that any comment that an animal may be good with children or other animals or is housebroken is based upon information provided by previous owners or shelter notes and not a guarantee. I am aware that dogs may cause property damage or personal injury to myself, my family or others. *
