I agree to abide by the following terms as a volunteer and representative of The Canine Collective.

  1. I will not sell or give away any dog in my care to a research facility, pet shop, dog broker or puppy mill, or to any other person, firm or corporation that may cause harm either mental or physical to any dog.

  2. I will contact a board member of The Canine Collective immediately if the dog is in need of medical attention. Dogs in need of medical treatment must be seen by a veterinarian approved by The Canine Collective. All medical expenses must be approved prior to treatment.

  3. I will not use any dog that comes into my care through rescue for breeding purposes of my own or allow it to be used by any other person for those purposes.

  4. I will remember in all my dealings with the public that I represent The Canine Collective and will act pleasantly and answer questions politely, or refer persons to someone who can.

  5. All dogs will be indoor companions. You must have a secure fenced yard or be committed to multiple daily leash walks in all kinds of weather.

  6. If you are living in a rental property you must provide written proof of property owner or management company approval.

  7. All current pets in the household MUST be spayed/neutered and current on all vaccinations.

  8. Veterinarian references are verified.

  9. You must be willing to make a 2-3 adoption event per month commitment to your foster.

  10. IMPORTANT: Expect a 7-14 day adjustment period for your new dog. Our dogs have been through some recent changes in their lives and need a chance to adjust to their new surroundings.

  11. Fosters are the core of any rescue group. We ask that they be treated as a member of your family. This will assist them in learning how to be part of a family again.

  12. In the case of medical emergency, lost dog, or death of an animal occurs, you will contact The Canine Collective contacts given immediately.

 I have accurately completed this questionnaire and appreciate the risks in working with rescue dogs. I understand that The Canine Collective cannot be responsible for the actions, behaviors and/or medical conditions of the dogs that it seeks to rescue, and I agree to assume the risks implicit in working with dogs which may have been abandoned, beaten or otherwise mistreated or abused, or who may suffer from an illness, condition or disease. Further, I agree to indemnify and hold harmless The Canine Collective, its members and representatives, against any and all claims, known or unknown, now or hereafter, for any injury or damage to property or persons caused by or related to any rescue dog that I may come in contact with, and agree to take any and all necessary precautions to prevent any such injury or damage.
