What do pet foster parents do?

Pet foster parents are very much like child foster parents. They care for a homeless pet as if he was their own until he is adopted. Shelter environments can be extremely stressful for dogs. It is much more comfortable for them to stay in a home environment. They are able to get more individualized care in someone's home. It also gives them better socialization skills, which makes them a more well-adjusted pet. Also, the foster parent is able to learn about the pet's personality, likes, and dislikes so that he can be better matched to the right forever home. Most importantly, pet foster parents save lives

If you join our foster program, we will match you with a suitable pet to foster. For example, if you have a female dog who does not get along with other females, we will only have you foster male dogs. If you work full time and cannot care for young puppies, we will only have you foster adults. We train you to screen potential adopters to determine if they are a suitable match for your foster pet. You will then get to experience the joy of helping a homeless animal find a loving family of his own. 

All Veterinary care is paid for by CKR. Any trip to the Vet must first be approved by the CKR. You provide shelter, food, transportation to and from Vet appointments, training, and plenty of love!

In consideration of this opportunity to foster, I agree to the following terms and conditions, intending to be legally bound by them: I will use Compassion Kind approved vets only. *
If there is an emergency or unforeseen veterinary care is necessary, Compassion Kind should be notified immediately. All foster dogs are to be kept indoors only with adequate food, water and attention. *
Do you agree to make a commitment to care for the dog until a permanent home is approved by Compassion Kind or another approved foster home becomes available? While fostering for Compassion Kind you may not foster for another rescue without prior permission. This is due to the possibility of disease which could be transmitted from contact with another rescue's foster or the possibility of a physical altercation between our foster dog and the foster dog from another rescue. *
If at any time while you are fostering for Compassion Kind you decide you would like to adopt your foster please notify us immediately, within 4 days of obtaining the foster. If you do not do so and an adoption application is received for your foster then the approved applicant will have priority for adoption. If you adopt your foster you will be responsible for completing an adoption contract and paying the required adoption fee. *
If I suspend foster activities, or upon Compassion Kind request at any time, I will promptly return the foster dog(s) and all Compassion Kind supplies, equipment, records, monies and other items in good, clean condition. *
