CatPAWS may inspect the premises where the animal is to be or is being, housed at a mutually agreed upon time. 3. As a foster care provider, I realize my services are provided strictly on a volunteer basis and that I will receive nor expect any compensation or payment whatsoever or reimbursement for expenses not previously approved by CatPAWS. 4. As the animal remains the property of CatPAWS at all time, foster care providers do not have the authority to place or keep foster animal(s) with another party without prior approval from CatPAWS. 5.
