Profile

I am an owner of a pet looking for a temporary foster home for my pet.
I wish to offer my home for temporary placement to those looking for a temporary foster home for their pet. A user profile is required to communicate with pet owners.

By participating in the Home To Home™ program as a pet owner, I represent that I am the legal owner or guardian of the subject pet and I understand and agree that:

  1. After submitting this form, I will be contacted by community members who have not been screened by any animal welfare organization or any other organization. It is up to me to assess if the people interested in temporarily caring for my pet are qualified and suitable.
  2. My pet’s profile will be posted on one or more of the following: home-home.org, your local organization’s Home To Home website, related Facebook pages, and other similar websites, social media sites, and/or listing services.
  3. I will do my best to respond to all emails and/or phone calls about my pet, realizing that a non-response could mean not securing a temporary home for my pet.
  4. I take sole responsibility for communication with prospective foster families and selecting a foster family to provide temporary care for my pet. Any advice that may be given to me by the personnel of Home to Home and/or any local participating organization is for general guidance only. I take full responsibility for all decisions and outcomes relating to my pet.
  5. I will advise any prospective foster family of my pet’s medical, behavioral, or other needs or challenges.
  6. I assume responsibility for my own safety and for the safety of my pet. I will use caution and sound judgment when arranging meetings with strangers, such as, but not limited to, meeting in public places and taking a trusted friend along. I will be cautious when exchanging personal information.
  7. I will obtain written confirmation of the terms of any agreement reached between me and a foster family regarding my pet, including but not limited to the length of the foster care arrangement, any special requirements for the care of my pet, and the responsibility for medical care for my pet if needed. I will make sure that the foster family has a means to contact me at all times, and I will promptly respond to all communications from the foster family.
  8. I will abide by the terms of any agreement reached between me and the foster family, and I will retrieve my pet at the end of the agreed-upon foster period. I understand that if I do not retrieve my pet as and when agreed, my pet may be rehomed or surrendered to the local animal shelter.
  9. I am participating in the Home To Home™ program at my own risk. Neither Home to Home nor any local participating organization shall be responsible for the care or welfare of my pet, or for the return of my pet at the end of the foster period, and I understand and assume the risks involved in participating in a foster care program for my pet (including but not limited to risks associated with the care of my pet by others, possible injury to my pet while being fostered, and/or potential difficulties in retrieving my pet at the end of the foster period).
  10. I agree to the full terms of use

By participating in the Home To Home™ program as a foster home, I understand and agree that:

  1. Neither the individuals seeking foster care for their pets, nor the pets themselves, have been screened by any animal welfare organization or any other organization. It is up to me to assess if the people seeking foster care for their pets, and the pet themselves, are qualified and suitable.
  2. If and when I initiate contact with a pet owner about a potential foster arrangement, I will do my best to respond to all emails and/or phone calls from the pet owner. I realize that a non-response could mean not securing a temporary home for a pet in need.
  3. I take sole responsibility for communication with pet owners and selecting any pet that I will temporarily foster. Any advice that may be given to me by the personnel of Home to Home and/or any local participating organization is for general guidance only.
  4. I assume responsibility for my own safety. I will use caution and sound judgment when arranging meetings with strangers, such as, but not limited to, meeting in public places and taking a trusted friend along. I will be cautious when exchanging personal information.
  5. I will ask appropriate questions about any pet that I decide to foster, including but limited to questions about the pet’s medical, behavioral, or other needs or challenges.
  6. I will obtain written confirmation of the terms of any agreement reached between me and the pet owner regarding any pet that I decide to foster, including but not limited to the length of the foster care arrangement, any special requirements for the care of the pet, and the responsibility for medical care for the pet if needed. I will make sure that the pet owner has a means to contact me at all times, and I will promptly respond to all communications from the pet owner.
  7. I will abide by the terms of any agreement reached between me and the pet owner, and I will return the pet to the pet owner at the end of the agreed-upon foster period. I understand that this is NOT an adoption program and that I am only temporarily caring for any pet that I decide to foster. If requested by the pet owner, I will promptly return the pet to the pet owner even if it is before the end of the expected foster period.
  8. I will provide humane treatment and adequate food, water, and shelter to the pet, and I will promptly notify the pet owner if the pet is lost, if the pet is injured or requires medical attention, or if the pet causes any injury or material property damage. I will not modify the appearance of the pet (excepting routine bathing and grooming) or have any procedures performed on or to the pet without the express consent of the pet owner (excepting emergency medical treatment deemed necessary by a licensed veterinarian).
  9. I am participating in the Home To Home™ program at my own risk. Neither Home to Home nor any local participating organization shall be responsible for the care or welfare of the pet, for any costs incurred in caring for the pet, or for coordinating the return of the pet at the end of the foster period. I understand and assume the risks involved in participating in a foster care program for a pet (including but not limited to risks associated with potential injury or property damage caused by the pet, medical expenses or other expenses that may need to be incurred in caring for the pet, and/or potential difficulties in returning the pet at the end of the foster period).
