Volunteer & Foster
When you foster for Luv-A-Pet, all medical expenses for the Luv-A-Pet animal is covered when treated
by a participating LUV-A-PET veterinarian. We supply the food while you supply toys, treats, love and
a safe haven for your foster until he or she is adopted.
To start the process in this rewarding journey please fill out our application. We will speak with you
about your particular desires and goals in fostering and answer any questions you may have. We will
then be able to help you select a suitable foster animal.
Thank you for considering fostering with us and for being a person who cares about the welfare of
The application will be used to establish base information for our fostering records. LUV-A-PET reserves
the right to deny any foster if we feel that the home environment is not suitable to properly care for
the animals. We do not discriminate based on race, sex or creed and are only interested in the best
overall welfare of the animal.
By submitting this application, you certify that the information is true and understand that false
information is grounds for terminating the foster relationship. This relationship can be terminated at
any time, by either party after discussion of the situation with a Luv-A-Pet representative. Please keep
us informed of any issues so we have sufficient time to help or place the animal in another foster home.
If for any reason you cannot adhere to the foster agreement, you agree to return foster animals(s) to
the care of LUV-A-PET. You authorize the release of all health records on any pets you currently have
or have had in the past. You understand that any fostered animals in your care are the property of
LUV-A-PET until they are placed in an approved home in accordance with the policies in the adoption
contract and the adoption donation has been collected. Except in a situation where the life of the
animal is in danger, any medical treatment must be approved and performed by a LUV-A-PET
veterinarian. The cost for any unauthorized non-emergency veterinary care will not be the responsibility
of LUV-A-PET. You agree not to hold LUV-A-PET responsible for any damages caused by foster animals
while in your care. You understand that LUV-A-PET is only responsible for the medical care of the foster
dog and that unforeseen circumstances may arise in which your pet becomes ill due to exposure to the
foster dog, in which case the medical fees for your own pet are your sole responsibility. With that said,
we look forward to hearing from you and saving lives.
|The Rescuer's Creed
I promise I will take your unwanted animals.
I will heal their wounds, their diseases, their broken bones.
I will give them the medical attention they need and deserve.
I will nurture their starvation and give them a warm place to sleep.
I will spay and neuter them, vaccinate them against the diseases that can harm them.
I will treat them and honor them.
I will buy them toys, blankets, balls, and teach them to play.
I will speak softly to them.
I will try to teach them not to fear, not to cry, and not to hate.
I will whisper sweet, kind, gentle words into their ears, while gently trying to stroke their fear, their pain,
and their scars away.
I will face their emotional scars and give them time to overcome them.
I will socialize them, potty train them, teach them to be obedient, show them dignity, and hold their
paws, and stroke their ears if they have endured too much and walk them over the Rainbow Bridge,
BUT most of all I will teach them LOVE.
If you can't foster we could still use your help. We are always looking for support volunteers to help
at events and organize fundraising activities. Any talents or services that you would be willing to
volunteer to the organization would be greatly appreciated.
