  46. If accepted as an SAS Foster Volunteer and in consideration of becoming such a Volunteer, my signature below indicates that I understand and agree to abide to the following:
    1. I fully understand that the SAS makes no guarantees whatsoever as to the health, temperament, mental disposition and training of the animal( s) and understand that any comment that an animal may be good with children or other animals or is housebroken is based upon information by previous owners or observation in the shelter and not a guarantee.
    2. I understand that I will communicate any questionable temperament of the foster animal to SAS and I will abide by any decision SAS makes regarding the foster animal.
    3. I will provide proper and sufficient food and water, shelter, socialization and kind treatment. I agree to bath/groom, keep flea and tick free, exercise and socialize the foster animal(s) as appropriate. I agree to never hit, kick or abuse the animal in any way. I shall not leave the animal(s) unsupervised outside and shall comply with all city, state and federal laws relating to animals. I also understand that I shall provide the above- described services without monetary compensation from the SAS.
    4. I agree to contact SAS immediately, and provide transportation at any time, should veterinary medical care be needed for the animal(s). SAS works with veterinarians that are familiar with shelter medicine. If the foster animal needs medical care of any kind, I have the option to contact the designated SAS staff member immediately and to follow their instructions. Foster animals may go to a foster volunteer’s personal vet at the cost of the Foster Volunteer. However, SAS staff MUST be notified of said medical care and SAS has final say of further medical attention. I will dispense all medication and provide medical attention as directed by SAS staff.
    5. SAS will be allowed to reasonably inspect the premises in which the animal(s) will be housed or are housed , from time to time, for the purpose of determining the suitability of those premises for the c are and maintenance of the animal(s).
    6. I agree that I will not place the foster animal(s) in a dangerous situation (e.g. riding in an open pick -up truck or left unattended in a car). I agree that I will not use chains or other devices to tether the animal as a means of confinement. I agree that I will keep all foster dogs and puppies in a secure area, and that I will not allow the dogs and puppies off -leash except in a secure, monitored fenced area of my property. I agree to provide adequate exercise and socialization for the foster animals.
    7. I agree that I will keep all foster cats and kittens indoors at ALL times.
    8. I agree to keep SAS updated with analysis of the foster's personality, temperament and any potential adoption leads. I will attend at least one adoption event every month with my foster. If I'm unable to attend events or unable to gain adoption interest in my foster within two months (except for nursing or bottle babies and moms) , I will surrender the foster animal to SAS if requested.
    9. I understand and agree that City of Springdale Animal Services and its Animal Shelter will not be liable for any future injury, damage, or illness that may be caused by this animal. All of the information I have provided on this application is, to the best of my knowledge, true and complete. I understand that falsifying information on this agreement or non- compliance with any of its terms at any time during the foster process may disqualify me for eligibility as an Animal Foster Volunteer.
    10. Foster Volunteers are encouraged to assist in the placement process of their foster animal(s) and input is valued regarding prospective homes, however SAS will make the final decision regarding the placement of the foster animal(s) . I understand that if a potential home is found, the animal must remain in the custody of the Foster Volunteer or the custody of SAS until the new adopter has finalized the adoption paperwork at SAS.
    11. If I fail to abide by the terms of this Agreement or otherwise fail to satisfy SAS's requirements, as determined by SAS in its sole discretion, I will be released from the Animal Foster Program, and all SAS animals will be returned to SAS within 24 hrs. If animals are not returned within 24 hrs, SAS reserves the right to remove the animals from the foster volunteer’s property.
