Fostering Saves Lives!


BARC-CT could not function without caring fosters providing a temporary place for a rescued animal to stay in their home. Some only have their foster dog long enough for a good meal and a safe night's sleep, others may have their guest for longer. Often, a dog remains with the foster family for many weeks—long enough to work on developing trust or recovering from injuries or a surgical procedure.

It is possible to specify a time preference by choosing to be an Emergency or Long Term Foster. While in foster care, BARC-CT covers all medical expenses and may supply you with other items like a crate or special food, if needed. Occasionally, the option to Foster-to-Adopt is utilized. This allows for a short "trial period" for a family who intends to adopt, but may need additional time before doing so. We are flexible and will work with each family regarding individual needs.

I make the above statements and voluntarily enter into this agreement to provide a temporary home as a foster caregiver to any animals BARC may temporarily place in my care. I agree to provide a BARC representative access to all parts of my home and property for a home inspection before my application to foster is approved. I understand that I may be required to provide foster care to my foster animal for an extended and indefinite period of time. I agree that I am over 21 years of age. I understand that BARC provides no guarantee as to the health of my foster animal and that my foster animal may have medical needs, socialization problems, and may not be housebroken. I agree to provide my foster animal with veterinary care as authorized by BARC. I will not arrange or pay for any elective veterinary care for my foster animal without the express consent of an authorized BARC representative. I understand that I may only have my foster animal temporarily. I agree that I am fostering this animal for BARC, and that I do not have any right of ownership over my foster animal. I further agree that BARC rights to my foster animal are superior to mine. I also agree to provide a BARC representative access to my home and property to check on my foster animal, at any time that I am in possession of my foster animal. I agree to immediately return any foster animal in my care to BARC at the request of its authorized representative at any time and for any reason. If BARC is forced to undertake legal action to enforce this provision of the agreement, I agree to indemnify BARC for all court costs and attorney fees connected with such an action. If I am planning to move at any time during the period when I am housing a foster animal, I agree to contact BARC prior to my move and provide BARC with my new contact information. I understand that BARC has the right to request return of my foster animal based on my change of residence, and agree that I will surrender my foster animal to BARC immediately upon request. I understand if at any point I can no longer, or do not want to continue to, provide care and shelter for my foster animal, I agree to contact BARC and arrange for surrender and return of my foster animal back to BARC. I will not transfer possession or custody of my foster animal to any other person at any time, except for temporary, short-term possession for the purpose of vet care, grooming, etc. I agree to contact BARC with any and all questions or concerns about my foster animal or the Foster Care Program as well as with updated contact information. I agree that if I refuse or fail to comply with any provision of this agreement, BARC has the right to terminate this agreement and also has the right to the immediate surrender and return of my foster animal(s). I further consent to provide BARC access to my premises if necessary to facilitate the return. I agree that the opportunity given to me to help rehabilitate my foster animal, as well as the chance of a potential future adoption, is of significant benefit to me, and serves as proper legal consideration in exchange for my agreement to the terms of this contract. I have read this application and am in agreement in its entirety. I agree that all statements and agreements contained in this document are made by me and are truthful. Important: Upon approval, Foster-to-Adopt families may be given up to 72 hours from the date of spay/neuter surgery to officially adopt their foster dog.
