Briefly describe why you want to foster:
Give a rough idea of your schedule in terms of best times of the year to
foster and times that you could not foster at all :
Please read the following very carefully and initial each item you
are willing to do as a foster person/family for GRAPE dog.
I will take the foster dog to the
veterinarian when necessary. If there is a non-emergency problem that I think
might need medical attention, I will immediately call the GRAPE's President and report it.
I will give any prescribed medications to
the foster dog, following the dosage directions carefully and keeping a record
to pass along to an adopting family.
I will keep the foster under my
supervision at all times while it is in my care.
If any damage to my property occurs because
of the foster dog, I will not hold GRAPE liable.
I will report any aggressive behavior of a
foster dog toward humans or other animals immediately to GRAPE's President.
If a foster dog and my pets are
exhibiting aggressive or violent behavior toward one another, and I am concerned
that things are not working out well, I will report it immediately to GRAPE's President.
I will keep the foster dog on a leash at
all times when it is outside unless I have a securely fenced yard. I will not
leave the foster dog iin a fenced yard unattended.
I will attempt in every way to socialize
the foster dog into my household and into my community during the time it is
I will exercise the foster dog as much
as possible, depending on the age and physical condition of the dog. If it is
overweight, exercise will be particularly crucial. Exercise includes walking
(particularly to test how the foster dog is on a leash) and playing (tennis
ball toss, etc.)
I will work with the foster dog to get a
feel for its grasp of basic obedience commands-sit, come, stay, lie down. If the
dog needs some work, I will work with it for short periods every day, building
I will not incur any expenses/debts on
behalf of GRAPE without express permission from GRAPE's President.
Failure to obtain permission may result in rejection of claim for reimbursement.
VERY IMPORTANT: I will relax and enjoy the
foster experience and make the stay as much fun as possible for the foster
dog and for everyone in the household.
I understand the information listed above and have completed the
questions on this form. I would like to offer my home to foster a GRAPE
dog. Signature Date
