By completing this form, I (named below as signatory) hereby agree to abide by the following policies as a Foster, Trial Adopter, Adopter and/or Volunteer during the time in which a dog or cat from Deity Animal Rescue + Foundation is in my care.
I will provide proper and sufficient food, water, shelter, an identification tag to be worn at all times and updated when needed, ongoing medical attention and check ups, all required vaccinations, spay, neuter and microchip.
I understand that it is my sole decision to Foster, Trial Adopt and/or Adopt from Deity Animal Rescue + Foundation and/or Volunteer with Deity Animal Rescue + Foundation. I will not hold Deity Animal Rescue + Foundation liable for any damage, injury, or harm caused directly or indirectly through my actions.
As a Foster, I understand my role is solely as a temporary home, and that the placement of any dogs/cats I foster will only be to a home that has been deemed an approved adopter by Deity Animal Rescue + Foundation.
If I am no longer able to Foster, Trial Adopt or Adopt the dog/cat I will return it to Deity Animal Rescue + Foundation to be placed in another home. I will not abandon the dog/cat or surrender it to a shelter. If the dog/ cat is lost, I will immediately notify Deity Animal Rescue + Foundation and make every effort to recover it. In addition, I agree not to have any dog/cat euthanized without prior approval from Deity Animal Rescue + Fountain.
I will not keep the dog chained outdoors, but as an inside companion animal. I understand that Deity Animal Rescue + Foundation does not permit off-leash interactions outside of the Foster, Trial Adopter or Adopter’s home. This includes, but is not limited to Dog Parks.
I understand that my position as a Foster, Trial Adopter or Adopter will be terminated by Deity Animal Rescue + Foundation if my conduct is deemed detrimental to the best interest of the organization and to the animal in my care.
I acknowledge that Deity Animal Rescue + Foundation has not made, through its agents or volunteers, any warranties regarding the current or future condition, temperament, or conduct of the dog/cat. I hereby accept the dog/cat as is, assume all risks and responsibilities associated with caring for the dog/cat, including bites.
I hereby fully and completely release, indemnify, and hold harmless Deity Animal Rescue + Foundation, officers, volunteers and agents from any claim, cause of action or liability of nature, whether known or unknown, directly or indirectly arising out of or in connection with fostering, adoption care, maintenance, retention, temperament, conduct or condition of the dog/cat.
This contract may be specifically enforceable by Deity Animal Rescue + Foundation through judicial proceedings, including the right of the rescue to recover the dog/cat due to a breach of any of the terms of this contract.
I hereby agree that in the event I breach this contract and Deity Animal Rescue + Foundation files suit to enforce this contract or to defend any claim under this contract, that I will pay any court costs and attorneys’ fees incurred by Deity Animal Rescue + Foundation in connection herewith.
AGREEMENT TO HOLD HARMLESS, WAIVER AND ASSUMPTION OF RISK
I understand that as a Foster, Trial Adopter, Adopter or Volunteer with Deity Animal Rescue + Foundation, caring for dogs/cats in my home is not without risk to myself, members of my family or guests who may visit, and to my dog/cat or any other animal, because some dogs/cats to which I might be exposed may be difficult to control and may be the cause of injury or bites, even when handled with the greatest of care.
I hereby waive and release Deity Animal Rescue + Foundation, herein referred to as a dog/cat rescue organization, it’s volunteers, officers, members and agents from any and all liability of any nature, but without limitation, and any injury or damage resulting from the action of any dog/cat, and I expressly assume the risk of such damage or injury while the dogs/cats are under my care or on my property.
I acknowledge that I have read and fully understand the terms and conditions of the foregoing foster agreement and that I will comply with the same. I also acknowledge and understand that signing this document does not guarantee me adoption status, foster status or volunteer status with any dog, cat or as part of Deity Animal Rescue + Foundation.
