Foster cats must be kept indoors at all times.
Foster parents agree to house the animal indoors in a facility that is sufficiently heated and cooled where the ambient temperature does not fall below 45 degrees or go above 85 degrees for more than 4 consecutive hours. They also agree to keep the facility adequately clean and ventilated at all times.
Foster homes are considered to be an extension of RCHS and are covered under our license. We are required to share information on each foster home with the Kansas Department of Agriculture.
A foster animal(s) may be in your care for 1 week to 3 months…or more. If you know that will be out of town for a period of time, you must inform RCHS early enough to allow us the time to find the most suitable temporary accommodations for your animal.
RCHS will be responsible for any veterinary bills. As a foster parent, you will be responsible for advising RCHS of needed veterinary care. All veterinary appointments must have the prior approval of an RCHS dog or cat coordinator.
All new foster parents will be advised and given adequate direction by RCHS before an animal is brought into the home. While you are caring for foster animals, RCHS may call from time to time to check on the animal(s)’ progress and address any concerns you may have.
As a foster parent, you are required to submit an RCHS foster home report within 2 weeks of obtaining the animal. Future reports may be required if the animal experiences any significant changes.
RCHS will be available to answer any questions or concerns you may have about your foster animal.
