GALS provides necessary veterinary care, however there is a possibility that your foster animal may be carrying parasites such as worms, fleas, ticks, or mange when they initially arrive in your home. In unusual circumstances, they could also be carrying viruses such as parvo-virus or distemper. This is why it is important that all your animals be up-to-date on their vaccinations AND deworming. In addition, we recommend keeping your foster animal separate to other animals until checked by a veterinarian. Do you understand and accept this?

Purpose:

Foster parents are incredibly special in our organization. Our organization houses our animal friends in foster families, rather than in a central shelter. Our goal is to have them socialized within a family setting. We support each other’s efforts, share ideas and believe in teamwork. Global Animal Lovers Society thanks you very much for your application and looks forward to working with you in the near future

What GALS Supplies:

We supply the food and veterinary care for each animal in our care. We supply donated blankets, crates and other supplies such as food dishes and toys when they are available. We also supply shampoo, conditioners, special medicated shampoo if necessary, and medication if needed. Foster parents are guided through the adoption process and are supplied with adoption forms and other screening tools.

What Foster Parents Supply:

Foster families supply transportation to the approved Vet Clinics and back to their homes when picking up animals or taking them for medical care. Although food is supplied, generally foster parents pick it up at a mutually agreeable pick up location.

Waiver:

I agree to a home and yard visit on a mutually agreed upon date by a GALS representative if required. I agree to keep this pet(s) healthy with proper nutrition and veterinary care to keep this pet(s) safe from all harm and provide a loving home.

I personally guarantee that my resident pets are up-to-date with vaccinations are in good health. Global Animal Lovers Society will not be held responsible for any damage brought to the house or inhabitants as a result of my decision to foster an animal.

I have read the above information carefully and have filled out this application honestly. I understand that omission of information and/or failure to answer all the questions and sign the application can result in this application being declined. Also, if an omission or untruth is discovered after the placement takes place, I understand and accept that GALS has the right to remove the animal and equipment issued from my care.
