Unless otherwise discussed, iHeart Animal Rescue asks that our foster parents keep their foster animals until we find them a forever home (except in cases of emergency). We understand that some fosters take a little longer to get adopted. For example, a puppy (Short -Term) gets adopted rather quickly compared to senior or sick/injured dog (Long-Term). Would you consider yourself a Short-Term foster or a Long-Term foster? *
Long-TermShort-TermIt doesn't matter

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 iHeart Animal 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? *

Unless otherwise discussed, iHeart Animal 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 a few weeks to a few months. 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 iHeart Animal Rescue finds new placement for the animal. Are you comfortable with these expectations? *
YesNo

I agree to contact iHeart Animal Rescue immediately, and provide transportation at any time, should veterinary medical care be needed for the animal(s). iHeart Animal 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 iHeart Animal Rescue immediately and to follow their instructions. Foster animals may go to a foster parent’s personal vet at the cost of the foster parent. iHeart Animal Rescue cannot be responsible for vet costs at unapproved veterinarians.
