Foster Care Agreement
Thank you for caring about our Weimaraners in need and welcome to our foster care family. Being a foster home means giving love, encouragement and unqualified acceptance. Because of your caring, this dog will now be placed in a loving, responsible home that it deserved from the start. The Weimaraner that you are fostering has been checked by our vets and has received the following care:
Rabies Vaccination / DHLPP or DHPP Vaccination
DH(L)PP = Distemper/Hepititis/(Leptospirosis)/Parvovirus/Parainfluenza
Bordatella Vaccination (Kennel Cough Preventative)
Heartworm Test (& on monthly preventative unless noted otherwise)
Fecal Test or Treatment (for hook, round & whip worms)
By providing your home as a foster home, you are able to evaluate the dog's personality and disposition around family members and other pets. This will help us determine what type of home is needed. Your evaluation of the dog and the suitability of the prospective adoptive family is invaluable to his/her placement. DO NOT HESITATE to voice your observations and concerns about a family that may be interested in adopting.
Rules for Fostering:
1. The Weimaraner you are fostering should NEVER be allowed off leash unless he/she is in your safely fenced yard (with locked gates).
2. Please keep his/her collar (with rabies and rescue tags) on him/her at all times. A pinch collar (if provided) is for walking your Weimaraner on a leash. A choke or pinch collar may be fatal for the dog if unattended, dogs can hang themselves.
3. Please feed only the food and amounts recommended (quality food like Taste of the Wild, BLue Buffalo, Costco Kirkland's or Nature's Recipe). No table food, please!
4. If a crate has been provided to you, please be sure to use it when the dog is to be left alone. This will insure the dog's safety, along with the safety of your home.
5. Should the Weimaraner you are fostering become ill, PLEASE NOTIFY YOUR FOSTER HOME COORDINATOR IMMEDIATELY! We prefer to take our rescues to our vets who know their history. In case of an extreme emergency such as an accident or bloat, take the dog to the nearest available veterinarian immediately, AND NOTIFY YOUR FOSTER HOME COORDINATOR IMMEDIATELY!
6. DO NOT LET ANYONE TAKE THE DOG FROM ITS FOSTER HOME! The potential adopters are welcome to come visit but they are instructed to call an Adoption Coordinator for the adoption and release process.
