All expenses will be reimbursed by the rescues and we do require you keep in touch with our volunteers and the rescues.
Should you become a “Foster Failure” (and we love them) and would like to keep the dog, please notify the rescue in regards to the adoption application and fees required. Please keep in mind that the rescues have paid to pull the dogs, fully vet them with microchipping, spay/neuter and vaccinations so unfortunately even if you take care of the dog for a month or two it would still not cover the expenses they’ve incurred. Obviously any expenses that you incur would be taken into account. It is REQUIRED that you contact the rescue or instate contact PRIOR to taking the dog to the vet for non emergency related issues.
Homeward Bound CT volunteers will continue to promote the dogs being fostered and if any events are planned you will be notified so we can bring the dogs for adoption.
If you have any additional questions regarding fostering please be sure to discuss them with the rescue you fostering for.
You will also be required to fill out an actual foster contract with the rescue should you end up fostering for them.
You will only be required to fill out one application with Homeward Bound CT and we will keep it on file until you advise us otherwise.
