    If your rescued cats are accepted into the HOPE program, do you agree to the following:

    • I agree to bring the (cat)s identified on HOPE Cat Rescuer Evaluation Forms to adoptions at least twice monthly. I understand that if I fail to meet this requirement for 3 consecutive months, HOPE will not pay for any additional vetting unless the cat was not attending for medical related issues. If a rabies vaccine is necessary for my foster cat(s) to be able to attend adoptions, I will be responsible for paying for the vaccine but can request reimbursement (up to the amount paid at a HOPE vet) once the cat(s) have been in compliance for 3 months. I understand that any cat(s) who have not attended adoptions in 6 months will need to be re-evaluated for the HOPE program or will be removed from the program at that time.

    • I am able to stay and help out at adoptions at a minimum of once a month.

    • I can drive my foster animal to one of HOPE's veterinary clinics when needed.

    • I agree to provide indoor accommodations in my home, food, water, litter, and appropriate socialization for these cats.

    • If indicated, I will provide isolation quarters and administer HOPE-provided medication, or be responsible for their administration, as prescribed.

    • If an animal requires additional medical attention, I will consult with the designated HOPE medical contact person immediately and follow instructions provided, including transporting the foster animal to a designated veterinary clinic.

    • I will cover veterinary costs for any foster animal while it is in my care if such costs are the result of pre-existing conditions of negligence on my part.

    • I also understand that if my personal cats become ill due to a foster cat's illness, I am responsible for treating my own cats.

    • If an animal is adopted and subsequently returned, I will again foster it until another permanent home can be found.

    • I will foster these animals until adopted. If for any reason I can no longer provided foster care for the animal(s) described on HOPE Cat Rescuer Intake Evaluation Forms, I agree to contact my HOPE Buddy and the HOPE intake coordinator immediately, but I acknowledge that another foster home is likely not available. If an animal that I am fostering is not adopted through HOPE for any reason, I agree to reimburse HOPE the adoption fee.

    • I agree to keep all documentation, including all medical information, on the animal(s) accurate and up-to-date, and to serve as the primary source of information for applicants or adopters.

    • I acknowledge and agree that any contact I have with animals in connection with the HOPE program is undertaken at my own risk, and hereby release HOPE and any of its representatives and/or agents from any and all liability associated with fostering, handling, or interacting with HOPE animals.

    • I understand that if my rescued cats are accepted into the program, I must become a HOPE member, the cost of which is $30. Membership fee is due at time of evaluation.

    • I understand that Pet of the Week attendance is mandatory.
