Agreement

By checking each box below, you agree to the following statements:

Only the designated TBL members shall approve and place rescued animals into foster homes. Your TBL contact must be notified as soon as possible of any changes in the status of either the animal in your care or the foster home environment you have indicated above.

All animals placed in foster care will be examined by an approved veterinarian, and will have been given/will be given all necessary immunizations, and will be scheduled to be spayed or neutered (if they are not already). All basic medical expenses will be covered by TBL. We appreciate any willingness to provide the basics like food, bowls, leashes, litter, etc. An approved TBL representative must approve any unusual expenses.

The TBL rescued animal must wear his/her TBL ID Tag at all times, and must be on a leash or in a secure pet carrier when outside of its foster home and yard. During transport, the TBL rescued animal must ride inside the car. Your TBL contact must be notified immediately if the animal in your care is injured or missing. Any emergency veterinary expenses for your foster dog must be APPROVED AHEAD OF TIME and will be reimbursed by TBL only if those expenses were approved.

Ownership of all rescued animals remains with TBL until such time as proper adoption is completed. No rescued animal may be adopted, transferred, or relinquished without the approval by the authorized representative of TBL. Only authorized representatives of TBL will conduct interviews, home visits and adoptions. Adoptions will be official only after completion of the adoption contract, receipt of the agreed upon donation, and final approval by the authorized representative of TBL.

I have read all information provided regarding The Barking Lot's foster program and understand the expectations of a foster parent.
