Greyhound Foster Agreement
Pocono Greyhound Adoption


            I HEREBY AGREE to take care of the Greyhound
that has been placed temporarily in my care.  I agree to bring
the foster greyhound to meet and greets as needed.
If necessary, I will allow potential adopters to view the foster
greyhound at my home.  (This is strictly at the foster parents convenience.) 

All veterinarian care for the foster greyhound will be
the responsibility of Pocono Greyhound, unless such
injury or illness is due to carelessness or neglect
on my part.  Upon injury or illness, I agree to notify
Pocono Greyhound immediately for further instructions.
I realize I may be asked to provide transport to and/or
from the veterinary clinic at a specified time. 

            I agree to stay in touch with the above named adoption
group, at all times while the foster greyhound is in my possession. 
I also agree to return the foster greyhound upon request. 

            I further agree that by signing this Greyhound Fostering
Agreement, I am releasing Pocono Greyhound Adoption and its
representatives from any and all damages and Injuries that may
occur as a result of my providing housing for this foster greyhound.
