Pet's Health and Disposition
Rockwall Pets cannot guarantee the health or disposition of any foster animal. We do not have past records for these animals and there are some risks associated with taking in foster animals. Family pets will be current on all shots and foster pets will be kept isolated from family pets, for a minimum of seven days for the protection of all animals. I agree to be fully responsible for the safety and well being of the foster pet. I will provide a safe, loving, humane environment with adequate food water and shelter at all times. I will not declaw, crop ears, or crop tail of fostered pet. I will adhere to all state and local animal laws. I will promptly notify Rockwall Pets of any signs of illness, behavioral issues or concerns, an inability to continue to foster, if the pet become lost, and/or if the pets bites someone.

I agree that I am fostering this pet for Rockwall Pets and that I do not have any right of ownership over my foster animal. I further agree that the rights of Rockwall Pets in and to my foster pet are superior to mine. I agree to provide the Authorized Representative, or his/her designate, access to my home and property to check on my foster pet at any time while I am in possession of my foster pet.
Personal or Property Damage and/or Injury
I agree that accidental animal bites or other injuries to humans and other animals do occur, and agree to hold harmless and indemnify and protect Rockwall Pets from any claim or suit filed by someone as a result of such incident.
In addition, Rockwall Pets will not be responsible if an animal should damage or destroy property belonging to Foster Caregiver, Foster Caregiver household, or others, or if the animal shall transfer any disease, internal or external parasites to other animals and people in the Foster Caregiver household.
