As a foster family I/we agree to provide nutritious meals, fresh water, grooming, a safe environment, and appropriate shelter for this foster dog/cat. I will not leave my foster dog/cat tied up, especially when unattended. I will never leave my foster dog/cat unattended in a vehicle. I agree to arrange my family’s schedule so that the dog/cat 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 Good Karma Dog Rescue (GKDR) know immediately if there is any change in the health of the dog and will get clearance before I get anything other than 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 will not hit my foster dog. I understand that animal 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 GKDR if I am experiencing any behavior difficulties with my foster dog. I will closely supervise my foster 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 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 GKDR. I will relinquish the dog upon request. I understand that GKDR does its best to evaluate an animal’s temperament and behavior. GKDR is concerned about the health of the animals in its care and exercises due 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. GKDR 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.
