About the EARS Foster to Adopt (FTA) program
Please read and indicate below that you understand the EARS Foster to Adopt (FTA) program
Congratulations on joining the EARS Foster to Adopt (FTA) program! EARS fully vets and spays/neuters all rescue pets before any adoption can be finalized. The "Foster to Adopt" program is designed for young rescue animals who are not yet ready for spay/neuter or rescue pets with health/behavior problems who have not been cleared for adoption. The FTA program allows animals to be able to move into their future adoptive homes while still under the guardianship and care of EARS. (This program is NOT to be used as a trial period to see if the pet is a good fit in the adopters home!) At the appropriate age (usually 6 months) EARS will have young rescue pets spayed/neutered, you the adopter will pay the adoption fee, and the adoption will be finalized! Alternately, when your foster to adopt pet's health and/or behavior has been cleared for adoption, you the adopter will pay the adoption fee, and the adoption will be finalized.
I have read and understand the concept of EARS Foster to Adopt (FTA) program *
Some things you will need to know.... The young pets will have started the vaccination process while in their foster home but it is up to you as the future adopter to make appointments and take your pet to the vet for all necessary vaccine boosters and vet care. (Please ask when the next booster is due if the information hasn't already been provided). All puppies and kittens under 4 months of age require 3 sets of DAPP vaccinations plus a rabies vaccination to be fully vaccinated. It is very important to keep these appointments as missing one can mean having to start vaccinations over, which can be costly to the rescue and may put the pet at risk for contracting preventable disease. It is also your responsibility to inform your EARS contact person of appointments made or missed. *
*EARS covers costs (at our partner vets) of all vaccines, de-worming, spay/neuter, and emergency visits. All other vet visits, procedures, and tests will require permission in advance from the Board of Directors. *

Section 3: Foster to Adopt (FTA) / Adoption contract
Thank you for taking the time to fill out this foster to adopt application. We want to ensure that all of our animals find their forever home and we appreciate your patience during the adoption process. Please understand that animals who come into our care may come from unknown origin and background. Some animals have been abused, neglected or have been in foster care for some time. We cannot guarantee that the animal's behavior will not change once in your care. EARS will try to gather as much information as possible to make the transition as easy as possible. The animals's behavior and traits are based through observation only at times. Age, breed and health are only based on the history that the previous owners, rescue or spay/neuter clinic have supplied to the best of their abilities. If there is something noticeable or if a vet finds something on a wellness check, EARS with provide funds for care and vetting as long as the animal is in our care. EARS will not knowingly adopt out a sick or injured animal or one with extremely severe behavioral issues without first providing full disclosure about the animals and ensuring that the animal goes to an appropriate home with the experience and resources to care for such an animal. Adopting an animal is a serious commitment. Cats and Dogs can live for 10+ years and we would like to ensure all adoptive applicants are aware of, will and able to accept the physical, emotional, and financial responsibilities of pet ownership for the life of the pet. Please check the box below to signify that you have read and understand this statement *
