By checking this box you understand that the Humane Society of the New Braunfels Area (HSNBA) will determine the criteria for fostering, deciding which animals will be fostered, and appoint Foster Providers from a pre-approved list. Approved Foster Providers may always refuse a specific request for any reason. HSNBA staff will inform Foster Providers of any medical treatments to be given, the expected length of the foster care period, the objectives of the care (restoring to health, rearing to adoptive age, socializing, etc.), and any other expectations HSNBA has.
By checking this box you understand that HSNBA may decide to euthanize animals that do not respond to medical treatment, or animals that exhibit aggressive behavior. Also, animals in foster care occasionally expire unexpectedly. It is important that Foster Providers feel that they are able to cope with these possibilities.
By checking this box you understand that there is a risk that foster animals are incubating contagious diseases that could infect animals or humans in the home of the Foster Provider. Any illness or disease contracted by resident pets or humans is the sole responsibility of the Foster Provider.
By checking this box you understand that HSNBA will retain ownership of all animals in foster care, and will make all decisions regarding the medical care or euthanasia of those animals.
Finally, please type your name stating that you understand and have filled out the above questions to the best of your ability, as truthfully as possible.
