I have read the above questions and information carefully and have filled out this application honestly. I understand that omission of information and/or failure to answer all questions and sign the application may result in the application being denied. If an omission or untruth is discovered after an adoption takes place, I understand that the Mama Zoey and Puppies Rescue reserves the right to annul the foster arrangement and reclaim the animal. I understand that the above questions and information are an application to be considered as a foster family and does not guarantee I can foster dogs for Mama Zoey & Puppies Rescue. I understand that I will be required to complete a Foster Contract and make a one donation of $25 fee to Mama Zoey & Puppies Rescue for the cost of a foster permit through the Illinois Department of Agriculture before I can foster a dog. I understand that fostering a dog does not have a defined time limit, and I am prepared to act as the foster for a dog for an undetermined amount of time until the dog is adopted. I give Mama Zoey & Puppies Rescue permission to fully investigate the information provided on this application, include but not limited to a landlord. I understand that Mama Zoey & Puppies will conduct a home visit, as well as a meet & greet with the other pets in my household, on a mutually agreed upon date before a foster arrangement decision is made. I understand that the ability to foster a dog is dependent on many factors, including but not limited to the compatibility of the family and home with the individual dog. I understand that it is Mama Zoey & Puppies Rescue's prerogative to decide which home is most appropriate for each foster. I agree, that while my input will be considered, Mama Zoey & Puppies Rescue will select the dog I foster and that their decision is final, and therefore will respect that decision. I understand that, unless otherwise indicated by the Mama Zoey & Puppies Rescue, I am free to apply and undergo the application process in the future.
