  2. All animals placed in foster care will have been given/will be given all necessary immunizations and either already or will be scheduled to be spayed or neutered. Foster understands that due to stress and other circumstances, rescue animals can have ailments common to shelter animals such as ear mites, kennel cough, parasites etc. that may be transmissible to Foster’s other animals, and will not hold Street Dog Hero liable for any veterinary expenses incurred by Foster’s existing animals if such a situation should occur.
  3. All basic medical and general expenses will be covered by Street Dog Hero.
  4. The Street Dog Hero rescued animal must wear his/hers’ Street Dog Hero ID Tag, or an ID tag provided by Foster with Foster’s name, address, and phone numbers at all times, and must be on a leash or in a secure pet carrier when outside of its foster home and yard. During transport, the Street Dog Hero rescued animal must ride inside the car.
  5. Your Foster Care Contact must be notified immediately if the animal in your care is injured or missing, and any reimbursements for emergency medical care must be pre-approved by Street Dog Hero prior to treatment. If it is deemed by Street Dog Hero that any veterinary expenses incurred by the animal are a direct result of negligence by the Foster (For example: poor supervision when dealing with multiple animals resulting in injury, unsupervised yard play resulting in injury, an animal getting lose due to lack of supervision resulting in injury, insufficient water/food provided resulting in jury such as malnutrition/dehydration, off-leash play resulting in injury. *PLEASE respect all leash laws in your area. Street Dog Hero animals must remain on a leash at all times outside a securely fenced yard.), expenses for treatment of said conditions will be paid 100% by the Foster.
