  1. Fostering Agreement and Release and Waiver of Liability, Assumption of Risk and Indemnity Agreement

    Fostering Agreement:
    The foster home serves as a safe and comfortable environment for the rescue animal and allows all involved to get to know the animal before it is placed in a permanent home.

I acknowledge and agree that the Hall County Animal Shelter cannot guarantee me or anyone else what type of temperament the animal(s) I am fostering may have, that I am not an agent of the Hall County Animal Shelter and that I hereby accept responsibility for the animal(s) in my care. My ability to foster an animal from the Hall County Animal Shelter is contingent on a satisfactory home visit. I understand that if I am chosen to foster an animal, I have an obligation to provide proper care for the animal. I agree to abide by any decisions made by the Hall County Animal Shelter and that non-compliance with any issue could result in the foster animal being removed from my care. I further understand that the foster animal is only in my care temporarily and that this is not an adoption agreement and therefore is not an agreement that I will be allowed to retain possession of the foster animal on a permanent basis.
