We occasionally post pleas to Craigslist or Facebook to find foster homes for pets in immediate crisis. Are you responding to one of those pleas and signing up to foster a specific pet?

Skip this section if you are not interested in fostering dogs

If you live in an apartment or condo, we will need to check with the property management to ensure that dogs are allowed and find out about any possible breed restrictions. If you don't have this information now, you can still submit your application, and we'll get that info from you when our coordinator calls to discuss your app with you.

NOVA Pets Alive needs foster homes to care for unweaned kittens. This requires round-the-clock care as the kittens need to be bottle-fed every couple of hours. We will provide training.


By agreeing to foster in partnership with NOVA Pets Alive, I agree to the following:


Pet's Health and Disposition

NOVA Pets Alive cannot guarantee the health or disposition of any foster animal. We do not have past records for these animals and there are some risks associated with taking in foster animals. Family pets will be current on all shots and foster pets will be kept isolated from family pets, for a minimum of 7 (10-14 for cats), days for the protection of all animals. I agree to be fully responsible for the safety and well being of the foster pet. I will provide a safe, loving, humane environment with adequate food water and shelter at all times. I will not declaw, crop ears, or crop tail of fostered pet. I will adhere to all state and local animal laws and all foster animals will wear a collar with identification. I will promptly notify NOVA Pets Alive of any signs of illness, behavioral issues or concerns, an inability to continue to foster, if the pet become lost, and/or if the pet bites someone.


Transfer of Animals

Animals cannot be transferred to the custody of another person, shelter, humane society, SPCA, or other entity without prior consent and permission of NOVA Pets Alive. I agree to not place this pet in another home without the written or verbal authorization from NPA, whether it be temporary or permanent.


Return of Animals

All the pets in the NOVA Pets Alive foster program are the property of NOVA Pets Alive and must be returned within 24 hours of request. I agree that I am fostering this pet for NOVA Pets Alive and that I do not have any right of ownership over my foster animal. I further agree that NOVA Pets Alive rights in and to my foster pet are superior to mine. I agree to provide the Authorized Representative, or his/her designate access to my home and property to check on my foster pet, at any time while I am in possession of my foster pet.


Personal or Property Damage and/or Injury

I agree that accidental animal bites or other injuries to humans and other animals do occur, and agree to hold harmless and indemnify, and protect NOVA Pets Alive from any claim or suit filed by someone as a result of such incident.


In addition, NOVA Pets Alive will not be responsible if animal should damage or destroy property belonging to Foster Caregiver, Foster Caregiver household, or others, or if the animal shall transfer any disease, internal or external parasites to other animals and people in Foster Caregivers household.


I understand that if I am approved for fostering, this declaration represents a legal contract between me as the foster home caregiver and NOVA Pets Alive. I understand that if I am approved to foster an animal, I must abide by this agreement and that this agreement applies to any and all animals that I foster with NOVA Pets Alive
