Small Animal Foster Home Application Form
Infinite Woofs Animal Rescue's mission is to change the lives of animals in need by rescuing them from undesirable situations and providing them with loving foster homes, including any animals needing medical care including mandatory spay/neuter, microchips and vaccinations. We are also committed to providing our animals with any behavioural support they may need to allow them to be ready for their forever family. Our goal is to place the right animal with the right family to ensure a successful adoption. We strive to save one animal at a time and acknowledge that "saving one animal will not change the world but surely for that one animal the world will change forever"- unknown

Infinite WOOFS Animal Rescue provides the necessary veterinary care needed however there is a possibility that your foster animal may be carrying parasites such as worms, fleas, ticks, or mange when they initially arrive in your home. In unusual circumstances, they could also be carrying viruses such as parvo or distemper. This is why it is important that all your animals be up-to-date on their vaccinations AND deworming. In addition, we recommend keeping your foster animal separate to other animals until checked by a veterinarian. *

IWARS Foster Parent Waiver
Our organization houses our canine, feline and other friends in foster families, rather than in a central shelter. Our goal is to have the animals socialized within a family setting. All animals are kept in foster care for a minimum two weeks to ensure that they are healthy and free of disease.
What Infinite Woofs Animal Rescue Supplies:
We supply the food and veterinary care for each animal in our care. When animals first arrive in the rescue, they are taken whenever possible to a vet clinic for examination and vaccination, deworming and advice on care. We supply donated blankets, crates and other supplies such as food dishes and toys when they are available. We also supply shampoo, conditioners, special medicated shampoo if necessary, and medication if needed. Foster parents are guided through
the adoption process and are supplied with adoption forms and other screening tools.
What Foster Parents Supply:
Foster families supply transportation to the approved Vet Clinics and back to their homes when picking up animals or taking them for medical care. Although food is supplied, generally foster parents pick it up at the coordinator’s home, or a mutually agreeable pick up is arranged.
Waiver *
