The person/family agreeing to foster the Shiba will make no decisions or actions regarding the Shiba's vet care or placement without prior approval from SRNJ, Inc.  In case of life-threatening emergency the foster family agrees to get immediate medical care, and contact a rescue representative as soon as possible. *
The foster family agrees to provide the Shiba with humane, loving care while the Shiba resides with them.   The foster family also agrees to not allow the foster Shiba to come in contact with their own dogs nor be allowed to play, run, walk or sleep in the same areas as their own dogs.  Foster Shiba is to be kept separate unless detailed agreements are set in place through a SRNJ Representative.   *
The foster family agrees to provide the Shiba with a fully fenced yard or other approved means of exercise.  The Shiba shall not be kept tethered or excessively outdoors, nor taken to dog parks. *
In the event the Shiba is lost or stolen, the foster family will contact the SRNJ Representative immediately and make all reasonable attempts to locate the Shiba. *
Medical expenses associated with fostering are reimbursed to the foster family by the rescue.  These expenses are ALWAYS to be pre-approved by SRNJ, Inc. in advance (except in the case of a life-threatening emergency). *
If for any reason the foster family cannot continue to foster the Shiba in their care, they shall notify SRNJ immediately and alternative arrangements will be made as soon as possible.  The foster family WILL NOT undertake locating another foster home of their own. *
All foster families must be pre-screened.  In addition, the foster family understands that family, friends, co-workers and others interested in adoption must contact SRNJ, Inc. and follow appropriate procedures.  Under NO circumstances may the foster family place the Shiba in any home that has not been approved by SRNJ, Inc. *
The foster family understands that SRNJ, Inc. has limited information regarding the temperament or habits of the Shiba in question.  The foster family will take all reasonable precautions (through the use of leashes, supervision, fencing and common sense) to ensure that the Shiba does not run loose, become a nuisance, destroy property, cause injury to or become injured by another animal or by a person(s). *
The foster family agrees not to keep the Shiba confined to a crate, except for house training or sleeping.  Some Shibas become unduly stressed when crated or have exhibited behavior problems because of excessive crating in the past. *
In the event the foster family wishes to adopt the Shiba in their foster care, they must contact the rescue volunteer in charge of this Shiba and make formal arrangements (this includes completing the adoption application and contract). *
The foster family agrees to immediately surrender custody of the foster Shiba to a SRNJ Representative upon demand.  The foster family agrees that the foster family has no legal ownership and will not obtain any legal rights to the foster Shiba in their care. *
