Experiences With Animals

The following questions help us assess your experience with dogs so that we can place an appropriate foster dog in your home. You do not need experience in all of these areas to be approved as a foster home.


Reference #1 (veterinarian)

Reference #2 (professional)

Reference #3 (personal - no family)

Volunteer and Agreements

Foster Homes are given an honest evaluation of the temperament regarding a dog we have to place. Oftentimes, the complete history of a resced dog may not be known and behavioral or temperament problems might emerge which, on rare occasions, may be serious enough to raise safety concerns or questions regarding suitability for adoption.

Foster Homes work with a Rescue Representative and that Representative has the ultimate responsibility for the dog and the right to place it as he/she feels is appropriate. We do work with the Foster and value their feedback, as they know the Foster Dog best.

AAMAR Dogs are to be kept on a leash and are not allowed to run in unfenced areas. NO RETRACTABLE LEASHES ARE TO BE USED AT ANY TIME. You agree that you must have control of the dog at all times,

AAMAR may have to, as an absolute last resort, euthanize a dog for severe behavioral or medical issues. Would you have any issues with that?

All of the above information I have given is true and complete. I agree to follow all the Rules and Procedures of AAMAR. I will not hold AAMAR responsible for any damage, injury, or harm caused directly or indirectly to any person or property by any dog I may decide to volunteer my time to help.
I further understand and agree that the majority of communications within and between AAMAR volunteers is via electronic mail and through the posting of information on a private, closed, Facebook group site. AAMAR makes reasonable commercial efforts to secure your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. Unfortunately, however, no data transmission over the Internet is 100% secure. While AAMAR strives to protect your information, AAMAR cannot ensure or warrant the security of such information.
