Cincinnati Animal CARE Foster Disclaimer
By agreeing to foster in partnership with Cincinnati Animal CARE Humane Society, I agree to the following:
Pet's Health and Disposition
Cincinnati Animal CARE Humane Society 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 7 (10-14 for cats), 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 and all foster animals will wear a collar with identification. I will promptly notify Cincinnati Animal CARE Humane Society of any signs of illness, behavioral issues or concerns, and inability to continue to foster, if the pet becomes lost, and/or if the pet bites someone.
Transfer of Animals
Animals cannot be transferred to the custody of another person, shelter, humane society, SPCA, or other entity without prior consent and permission of Cincinnati Animal CARE Humane Society. I agree to not place this pet in another home without the written or verbal authorization from CACHS, whether it be temporary or permanent.
Return of Animals
All of the pets in the Cincinnati Animal CARE Humane Society foster program are the property of Cincinnati Animal CARE Humane Society and must be returned within 24 hours of request. I agree that I am fostering this pet for Cincinnati Animal CARE Humane Society and that I do not have any right of ownership over my foster animal. I further agree that Cincinnati Animal CARE Humane Society's rights 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 Cincinnati Animal CARE Humane Society from any claim or suit filed by someone as a result of such incident.
In addition, Cincinnati Animal CARE Humane Society will not be responsible if 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 Foster Caregivers household.
