Why do you want to foster an animal?*
I will keep this pet as a home companion and will give it the same considerations as I would a human family member. *
I agree to care for this animal in a humane manner, which includes providing adequate food, water, shelter, exercise, attention and medical care.*
If a canine, I will not let this pet outdoors without being leashed or providing proper supervision. If contained in a fenced area I will ensure the area is no smaller than 300 square feet and that fencing is high enough to keep the pet safely contained.*
I will not allow this pet to be chained, used for medical experimentation, dog fighting or any other illegal activity.*
At no time will I allow this dog be routinely tethered as a means of confinement, be transported in the open bed of a vehicle, or left in a parked vehicle when the outside temperature exceeds 60 degrees Fahrenheit.*
