Foster Care Application & Agreement

We rescue mini, standard and giant schnauzers who need homes.
 
Note: We do not allow families to foster who have children under the age of 9, as children can be unpredictable and the dog(s) might become agitated.

Thank you!

I volunteer to care for any Schnauzer placed in my care until a suitable home can be found. I agree to abide by the terms of the adoption agreement which has been provided for my information in regards to the manner in which the dog will be cared for. To be eligible for reimbursement, expenses incurred on behalf any dog while in my care, must be preauthorized by a Miniature Schnauzer Rescue (MSR) member. Under no circumstances may the dog be sold, traded or released to any other person or shelter unless authorized by MSR.

I understand that although MSR has determined the temperament of the dog in question to be sound, MSR does not warrant such, and cannot be held liable for acts committed by the dog while in my care.

I agree that should I choose to adopt a dog in my care, I will immediately notify a board member of my intention. I understand that adoptions by foster volunteers require board approval. I agree to reimburse MSR for any expenses incurred on behalf of the dog up to the standard adoption fees. If none are incurred, I agree the standard adoption fees apply.

By submitting this application, I certify that all of the information I have provided is true and complete to the best of my knowledge.


We reserve the right to refuse any applicant. Thank you for taking the time to complete this Foster Application which helps us to make the best possible placement for all concerned.
