Whereas, RRPADP has temporary custody and care of animals rescued from the above Incident; and
Whereas, RRPADP desires to provide a supportive, healthy and safe environment for each animal in its temporary custody and care; and
Whereas, RRPADP has requested reputable rescue partners to provide for immediate transportation to their locations for animals in RRPADP temporary custody.

I, make the following statements and voluntarily enter into this agreement to provide temporary care and custody and necessary sustenance as a foster caregiver to Rescued Animal named (hereafter “my foster animal”).

• I agree to provide access to my foster animal routine veterinary care appointments, including a yearly wellness exam, current required and recommended vaccinations, and urgent and emergency care as needed.
• I understand that RRPADP provides no guarantee as to the health of my foster animal, and that my foster animal may have significant medical needs, socialization problems, and not be housebroken.
• I will take all necessary precautions to prevent my foster animal from either impregnating another animal or becoming impregnated. In the event that such happens, I will alert the Authorized AAPADP Representative immediately.

I further agree that RRPADP’s rights in and to my foster animal are superior to mine.

• I agree to immediately return any foster animal in my care to RRPADP, at the request of the Authorized RRPADP Representative, or his/her designate, at any time and for any reason. If RRPADP is forced to undertake any action to enforce this provision of the agreement, I agree to indemnify RRPADP for all court costs and attorneys’ fees connected with such an action.
• If I am planning to move at any time during the period covered by this agreement, I agree to contact the Authorized RRPADP Representative prior to my move, with new contact information.

• I understand that because the provisions of this agreement are legally binding, any violation of this agreement could result in legal liabilities for myself and RRPADP.
• If at any point I can no longer, or do not want to continue to, provide shelter for my foster animal, I agree to contact the Authorized RRPADP Representative, or his/her designate, and arrange for surrender and return of my foster animal back to RRPADP.
