As a foster family I agree to provide nutritious meals, fresh water, grooming, a safe environment, and appropriate shelter for this foster dog. I will not leave my foster dog tied up, especially when unattended. I will never leave my foster dog unattended in a vehicle when it is 75 degrees or hotter, even with the windows rolled down. I understand that this can cause heat stroke and the death of a dog. I agree to arrange my family’s schedule so that the dog is seldom left alone for more than eight hours at a stretch. I agree to play with, pet and give attention to my foster dog when I am home. I agree to let my team leader know if there is any change in the health of the dog and will get clearance before I get anything other then emergency care for my foster dog. I will check my foster dog regularly for any signs of illness. I will do frequent flea and tick checks on my foster dog.
I agree that I will not hit my foster dog. I understand that dog trainers acknowledge that this is an ineffective way of changing bad behavior. I will seek to modify behavior by praising the behavior that I desire. I agree to consult with Crème de la Crème officials, if I am experiencing any behavior difficulties with my foster dog. I will closely supervise my dog when around children (especially children, or adults, he/she is not familiar with). I will closely monitor my foster dog when near roadways or open water, when riding in a vehicle (preferably the dog should be in a dog crate during car travel) and in any other situation which is potentially dangerous to my foster dog. I will have my foster dog wear an identification tag (preferably with a phone number) at all times. I agree to any home visits needed, as determined by Crème de la Crème Animal Foundation. I will relinquish the dog upon request.
I understand that Crème de la Crème Animal Foundation does its best to evaluate a dog’s temperament and behavior. I will not hold Crème de la Crème Animal Foundation liable for any damage the dog does. Crème de la Crème Foundation is concerned about the health of the animals in its care and exercises caution to prevent the transmission of diseases. Unless you are notified otherwise, the animals you foster will have been given preventive immunizations. However, because of the dire circumstances from which many of the rescue animals come, any animal may carry or could have already been exposed to an infectious disease, which may not be apparent for several days. Crème de la Crème Animal Foundation cannot warrant or guarantee the foster dog is healthy or good-natured. Any animal has the potential to bite or cause injury. You have determined for yourself the animal is acceptable for you and your household to foster, and you agree to indemnify and hold Crème de la Crème Animal Foundation, Crème de la Crème Animal Foundation volunteers and other Crème de la Crème Animal Foundation officials/representatives harmless for any illness the animal may develop and any injury or damage this foster dog may cause once you have taken possession of the animal. By signing below, you acknowledge that you have read, understand and agree to all terms laid out in the two pages of this contract.
