Become a Foster

Thank you for your interest in fostering! Fostering saves lives! By opening your home to pets in need, you are saving them from an uncertain future and giving them a second chance at life. You also open up much needed space in those shelters for other pets. Please complete the foster application below. To apply to foster for Louie’s Legacy Animal Rescue, please complete the form below. This form is designed to provoke thought about whether or not you are prepared to offer the best possible experience to an animal in need. We expect several things of our fosters, including compassion, perseverance and reliability. Do you exemplify these qualities? Please give each question serious thought as it will help us to determine your eligibility. Sharing your home with an animal, even temporarily, is a responsibility to be treated with care and respect. Many of our animals will require extra loving care as they recover from illness or learn correct behavior. If you are up to the challenge and ready to reap the rewards of helping to save the life of an animal, apply today!

Foster Contract and Affirmation

am applying to foster the following animal:

I understand that this contract is valid for any animal which I foster through Louie's Legacy Animal Rescue.

In the case of fostering, the person(s) agreeing to foster an animal (the foster family) will follow all relevant procedures and guidelines regarding the animal as stated in the Louie's Legacy Animal Rescue Foster Contract. If the animal cannot be kept by the foster family, the foster family shall notify a Louie's Legacy Animal Rescue Coordinator immediately. The animal shall not be sold, abandoned, relinquished to a pound or shelter or to a Rescue group other than Louie's Legacy Animal Rescue, transferred, or given to any individual, or to any retail or wholesale establishment. We appreciate your desire to help Louie's Legacy Animal Rescue by fostering one of our adoptable pets, but in order to ensure the safety of your foster we ask that you review and sign the following terms and conditions.

  1. If for any reason you have to return your foster you must return him/her to a Louie's Legacy Animal Rescue representative. A Louie's Legacy Animal Rescue representative will be more than happy to take your foster if you cannot keep them but we will require an appropriate time to make proper arrangements based on the animal's needs
  2. Louie's Legacy Animal Rescue must approve all adoptions; you are not to give your foster to anyone without the approval of a Louie's Legacy Animal Rescue representative.
  3. Fosters are to be kept ON LEASH AT ALL TIMES!! There are no exceptions.
  4. If you must take your foster to the vet we ask that you take them to the Louie's Legacy Animal Rescue vet (unless it is an emergency).
  5. In signing this foster agreement with Louie's Legacy Animal Rescue, I declare that I am aware that: animals are different from human beings in their responses to human actions; the actions of animals are often unpredictable; children and animals must be closely supervised when interacting; an animal’s behavior may change after it leaves the shelter and accustoms itself to its new environment.
  6. I am aware that the educated opinions of the shelter staff do not constitute a claim or guarantee as to the temperament, health or mental disposition of any animal available for foster or adoption.
  7. I herby accept possession, legal guardianship and responsibility for the animal I am fostering and discharge Louie's Legacy Animal Rescue forever from liability for any injury or damage to any person or property caused in the future by said animal, and from any causes of action, claims, suits, or demands whatsoever that may arise as a result of such injury or damages.
  8. All of the information I have provided is true and complete to the best of my knowledge.
  9. Should a pet be placed with me it will reside in my home as a pet. I agree to provide the dog with adequate food, water, shelter, affection and medical care which will be paid for by Louie's Legacy Animal Rescue.
  10. All fostered animals belong to Louie's Legacy Animal Rescue, and the rescue may choose to remove them from my home at any time, and for any reason.
