If this is not possible, the foster will be required to submit the required payment or make other arrangements with Cherished Cockers. The foster will submit all invoices to Cherished Cockers within 5 business days. Cherished Cockers will reimburse the foster for the invoices within 5 days of receipt of said invoices.

PLEASE NOTE: If there is an emergency or unforeseen veterinary care is necessary, Cherished Cockers should be notified immediately for approval. You will be provided with contact number of person(s) who can provide approval.

If there is a personal emergency, vacation scheduled, etc, please notify Cherished Cockers if arrangements need to be made for the care of the foster. If someone other than the person(s) signing this agreement will be responsible for caring for the foster, please advise Cherished Cockers, in writing, and furnish their contact information.

In the event that the foster feels the need to make a purchase for the care of the foster, please notify Cherished Cockers for approval. This should include an estimate for the item(s) requested.

I will abide by the mission, rules, regulations, policies and programs of the Cherished Cockers, Inc. while I am a foster.

I assume the risks of being bitten, scratched, injured or frightened by dogs and puppies or other Cherished Cockers animals in connection with my foster work for Cherished Cockers. The Cherished Cockers organization, officers and volunteers are not liable to me for any injuries, damages, liabilities, losses, judgments, costs or expenses which I might suffer or sustain in connection to the performance of my foster activities for Cherished Cockers unless they are the result of Cherished Cockers' gross negligence or intentional misconduct.

I will indemnify, defend and hold Cherished Cockers harmless from and against any claims, lawsuits, injuries, damages, losses, costs or expenses sustained by any companion animal or any person in connection with my intentional misconduct or grossly negligent performance of foster activities for Cherished Cockers, or my breach of Cherished Cockers' rules, regulations, policies and programs.

If I suspend foster activities, or upon Cherished Cockers' request at any time, I will promptly return all Cherished Cockers supplies, equipment, records, monies and other items in good, clean condition.

I will not have a person outside Cherished Cockers organization temporarily care for Cherished Cockers' animals (i.e. a visitor, pet sitter, neighbor, relative) unless the person first signs a Hold Harmless Agreement to hold Cherished Cockers, its officers and volunteers harmless in the event of injury or mishap. In the case of an adoption, an Adoption Agreement is to be signed.

Any modification to this Agreement must be in writing and signed by both parties. This Agreement is binding upon Cherished Cockers, Cherished Cockers' representatives, me and my respective heirs, successors, assigns, executors and personal representatives.
