Foster Application

Pet ownership is a serious commitment that the entire household needs to consider and agree to, before the animal is adopted. We want to ensure that each foster household is aware of, willing and able to accept the physical and financial responsibilities of pet ownership. Not everyone who desires to own a pet is ready to properly care for one.

This questionnaire will assist both you and us in determining if your household is prepared to assume the role of responsible caretaker for a rescued animal as a foster.

By submitting this form, you acknowledge that you have completely read this application, comprehend it fully, and have answered the questions put before you with honesty.  You understand that omission of information and/or failure to answer all questions can result in this application being declined. Also, if an omission or untruth is discovered after the adoption takes place, you understand that Carter’s Rescue reserves the right to annul the foster and reclaim the pet.  

You give Carter’s Rescue permission to fully investigate the information provided as well as contact veterinarians and related officials.  If this application passes this review, you agree to a home and yard visit on a mutually agreed date.
