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.
