Secondhand Animals determines the criteria for fostering, decides which animals are eligible for foster care, and appoints foster caregivers. Secondhand Animals will require you to go fill out a foster application, which protects you and the animal in your care. Secondhand Animals foster care volunteers may always refuse any specific request for any reason. Secondhand Animals admins will inform you of any medical treatments to be administered, the anticipated length of the foster-care period, the objectives of each particular placement (restoring to health, rearing to adoptable age, socialization, etc.), and any other restrictions or expectations we may have.
If any medical, food or supplies are needed for the foster animal, Secondhand Animals will be responsible for purchasing these supplies and getting them to the foster. Unauthorized purchases or medical expenses will not be reimbursed.
You will be expected to keep the animal safe and secure, return it to Secondhand Animals when requested to do so, and not promise the animal to anyone, or imply that you have the authority to approve a potential adoption. Secondhand Animals retains ownership of all animals placed in foster care, and will make all decisions regarding the adoption & placement of the animals fostered.
I have read and understand the statements above. I certify that all the information contained in this application is true and correct. I understand that although Secondhand Animals takes reasonable care to screen animals for
foster care placement, it makes no guarantees relating to the animals’ health, behavior or actions. I understand
that I receive foster care animals at my own risk and can decline to accept any animal for which Secondhand Animals has asked me to provide care. I acknowledge that Secondhand Animals is not responsible for any property damage or personal injury suffered by me, members of my household, including my own animals, or any third parties during a foster placement, and I assume liability to provide adequate controls to prevent such damage or injury.
