    I am submitting an application to foster pets through Homes For Pets/Schertz Humane Society and that my application may be denied. If my application is approved, I agree to the following terms and conditions:

    1. I agree that any pet(s) fostered by me through Homes For Pets/Schertz Humane Society are the sole property of Homes For Pets/Schertz Humane Society.

    2. I agree to return my foster animal(s) to Homes For Pets/Schertz Humane Society if I am requested to do so, within 24 hours of the time of the request.

    3. I agree that all foster pet intakes must be approved by Homes For Pets/Schertz Humane Society.

    4. In becoming a foster volunteer, I agree to abide by all foster care policies, and all adoption policies.

    5. I agree that Homes for Pet/Schertz Humane Society must approve all adoption applications, and I will not promise anyone that they can adopt my foster animal(s).

    6. I agree to take my foster pet(s) to adoption events, unless medically or behaviorally exempted by Homes For Pets/Schertz Humane Society.

    7. If I am considering adopting my foster pet(s), I agree to complete an adoption application and pay the adoption fee. I agree to decide whether or not I want to adopt before I introduce a pet to a potential adopter.

    8. I agree that if I cannot continue being a foster caregiver for ANY reason, I will not give away, abandon, sell, or euthanize the pet(s) in my care. I will contact or call (210) 619-1980 for arrangements to be made to move the pet(s) into other foster homes within our foster care program. I agree that this may not be immediate and that it takes time to find a new foster home. I will continue to care for my foster pet until a new home is found.

    9. I agree that Homes For Pets/Schertz Humane Society will be responsible for any medical expenses that may occur while the pet is in my care, so long as those expenses were approved by Homes For Pets/Schertz Humane Society prior to the veterinary visit. If a veterinary visit is necessary, I will contact Homes For Pets/Schertz Humane Society to make the necessary arrangements for my foster pet(s). I will NOT take my foster pet to a veterinarian on my own without authorization from Homes For Pets/Schertz Humane Society. Homes For Pets/Schertz Humane Society will not reimburse me for unauthorized veterinary expenses.

    10. I agree that rescue animals come with a lot of “baggage” and may have separation anxiety, may need to learn how to behave in a house environment and to bond with me and my other pets. I agree to work with my foster pet(s) to overcome any behavioral challenges that may create difficulty in finding an adoptive home. I agree not to physically discipline (through spanking, hitting, alpha-rolling, or other physically violent methods) my foster pet(s).

    11. I agree to contact Homes For Pets/Schertz Humane Society at and/or 210-619-1980 if my foster pet(s) needs professional training assistance. Homes For Pets/Schertz Humane Society will make the necessary arrangements for my foster pet(s) to receive training services, and this may be in my home or at a training facility as judged appropriate by Homes For Pets/Schertz Humane Society. Homes For Pets/Schertz Humane Society will not reimburse me for unauthorized pet training services.

    By submitting this application, I agree to the above terms. I attest that the information provided is accurate and complete. I understand that providing false information can result in my application being rejected and that my participation in the foster program will be terminated. Noncompliance with the terms of this agreement will result in termination of my participation in the foster program.

    I agree to the terms above*
