By submitting this Foster Care Application you acknowledge that you will abide by the provisions below:
Foster dog(s) must be kept on a leash or enclosed (within a fence adequate for the animal, or in a home) at all times.
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 a RCHS cat, dog, or exotics 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 contact you from time to time to check on the animal(s)’ progress and address any concerns you may have. It is important that you communicate in a timely manner with the foster coordinators and let them know right away if you run into any issues.
As a foster parent, you will be expected to keep in touch with the animal coordinators about how your foster animal is doing and provide information about the animal for RCHS to post on Petfinder and other social media sites.
RCHS will be available to answer any questions or concerns you may have about your foster animal.
By submitting this form, you agree to the above statements and certify that the answers given above are true:
