Title: Foster Parent
Works with: Various volunteers from all teams such as foster, medical, marketing, events, etc.
RESPONSIBILITIES: Help us save more lives! By opening your home and heart to an animal in need
until they can find their own FURever home.
Commitment and Term: All of the animals that are brought into our program are placed into foster care.
APPR does not have a shelter or facility so foster families must commit to fostering their pet until the
pet is adopted or transported to another rescue partner (through set up and agreement with APPR). This
agrees to working through unexpected behavioral and medical issues that may arise and following
through with advised treatment. We understand that personal issues can arise that are out of your
control such as but not limited to illness, death, moving to another state, change in financial status, etc.
We will do our best to accommodate these unexpected life changes but cannot guarantee an immediate
solution.
Beyond providing plenty of love, foster homes are generally responsible for providing a safe, clean, and
caring environment; shelter, food, water, and toys/enrichment; and exercise and socialization as
appropriate. In addition to providing these basics, foster parents may also be asked to monitor any
medical and/or behavioral issues and work with our medical and behavior teams, as needed, to provide
the best care possible for the animal. Foster parents are responsible for picking up their foster from the
shelter and transporting them to and from medical appointments, and events. We also expect our
fosters to actively market their foster pet for adoption, screen and meet with potential adopters, be
responsive and courteous towards potential adopters, and otherwise follow our adoption protocols.
Who Should I Foster: It is important to be thoughtful of your decision to foster any live animal. When
going through the album of available animals, please consider your family’s needs and lifestyle, the
dog’s needs, and the care you are willing to provide. Many of the foster animals brought into our care
are not yet ready for adoption due to outstanding medical needs. In addition, many times we do not
know if the pet is house trained, how they are on a leash, if they are crate trained, etc. It is important to
understand what you are and are not willing to deal with during your foster commitment.

Mission Statement

APPR: Abandoned Pet Project Rescue is dedicated to creating positive outcomes for the overlooked, abandoned, and often injured animals whose medical treatments are funded by Abandoned Pet Project. Through adoptions and transport partnerships with like-minded rescues across the nation, Abandoned Pet Project Rescue provides the opportunity for our pets to live happy and healthy lives in loving, forever homes. APP: Abandoned Pet Project is dedicated to providing the funding for abandoned, abused, and homeless pets so they may receive the medical care they need. We are a non profit organization that supports a network of fosters, veterinarians, community outreach projects, and spay/neuter initiatives. Our veterinary partners work diligently to rehabilitate shelter animals and offer their communities medical assistance through low cost vaccine clinics, microchipping, and spay & neuter assistance for area animals.

Description

Abandoned Pet Project was founded in 2016 to assist a network of veterinarians and their rescues partners to enable them to save medically needy animals, while also contributing to the area community through outreach events such as low costs clinics. In 2019 we added on Abandoned Pet Project Rescue in order to create an even larger impact to the animals and people of our communities through further outreach events, fostering, and local adoption, as well as transport opportunities for animals in an effort to save more lives.
