We sincerely hope that we may be of service to you. Please fill out this application completely. The application is designed to assist the potential foster care provider in finding an animal suitable to his/her lifestyle.
The animals here at the shelter are termed "random source." This means that we accept animals from all sources including stray, abandoned, and homeless animals.
THERE IS SOME RISK IN BRINGING AN ANIMAL from any shelter or humane organization into your home since frequently we have no background information on the health and temperament of an animal, or information given to us is inaccurate. We attempt to evaluate all incoming animals for health and temperament problems; however, thorough health screenings are not provided. Often certain types of problems will not demonstrate themselves until the animal is in a home situation or a specific time period has elapsed (as in the incubation period of certain viruses). For these reasons, WE DO NOT GUARANTEE THE HEALTH OR TEMPERAMENT OF ANY ANIMAL and urge the owner of a newly acquired animal to bring the animal to a veterinarian for a thorough health screening as soon as possible.
Some of the animals at Animal Allies have come from abusive or negligent homes. As a potential foster care provider, please be aware that most of the animals that need foster care will need an abundance of patience, understanding, time and training to make them agreeable companions.
