ARIZONA CHIHUAHUA RESCUE GENERAL INFORMATION
AND OUTLINE OF THE REQUIREMENTS FOR FOSTER HOMES
PLEASE NOTE THAT ALL OF THE BELOW ARE REQUIREMENTS AND AS SUCH ARE MANDATORY. IF, FOR ANY REASON, YOU CANNOT PROVIDE AND ABIDE BY THESE REQUIREMENTS PLEASE DO NOT COMPLETE THE FOSTER APPLICATION AND/OR FOSTER WAIVER. MAYBE YOU WOULD BE INTERESTED IN ASSISTING AZCR IN SOME OTHER CAPACITY - IF SO, PLEASE ASK US FOR OUR VOLUNTEER INTEREST APPLICATION.
EACH NEW FOSTER PROSPECT IS REQUIRED TO COMPLETE A FOSTER APPLICATION & WAIVER OF LIABILITY, ALLOW A HOME CHECK, PARTICIPATE IN A 1-1.5 HOUR TELEPHONE ORIENTATION AND ATTEND TWO (2) ADOPTION EVENTS (START TO FINISH) PRIOR TO BEING APPROVED AS A FOSTER HOME.
SOME GENERAL INFORMATION REGARDING FOSTERING FOR AZCR
Foster Homes are responsible for the following:
Providing adequate food, water, shelter and kind treatment of the dogs
Making appointments and transporting the dogs to and from vet appointments (after obtaining approval from Board member)-AZCR pays for all approved medical costs to AZCR approved vets. You must use one of the AZCR approved veterinarians.
Monitoring the health of the dogs
Notifying Az Chi Rescue of any health or behavioral problems
Taking foster dogs to the regular and special adoption events (for list of current regular adoption events please CLICK HERE) Then click on the adoption events link on the left side of home page
Taking photo's of foster dogs, writing their bio's and getting them to the proper person to add to our website
Reviewing applications, doing home checks & taking dogs to meet prospective adoptive families
Getting all medical, shelter, adoption and other paperwork as well as all adoption fee's collected to the designated AZCR person
Some of the Main Requirements of the Family/ Home in order to qualify as a Foster-note this list does not include all requirements, just some of the most usual that we encounter:
The fosters own personal animals (dogs/cats) must be spayed/neutered and kept up to date on vaccines
If the yard is fenced, the fence must be secure enough to keep a Chihuahua from slipping out. Any open spaces must be made secure
If the home has a pool, the dogs access to the pool area must be blocked/secure when the dog is unattended
If residence is a rental we must have written documentation from landlord that the foster has permission/approval to foster for us.
If there is a HO Association involved we must have written documentation from the Association (or management firm) that the foster has permission/approval to foster for us.
Once approved, your first foster would come from one of our other fosters' homes, a dog that is already fully vetted and ready to attend events - so as to ease you into our methods. You should let us know you if you prefer to take a female, male, pup, senior, etc foster.
Please email our Foster Volunteer Coordinator (Rescue@AzChihuahuaRescue.org ) or call 480-844-CHIs (2447) for more information.
