Crate rotating is the act of utilizing kennels/separate areas in order to safely integrate multiple dogs within a home. For example, one dog might be enjoying free time in the living room, while the other dog is safely confined in a different room or a kennel.
If necessary, are you willing to crate-rotate during the initial stages of fostering, until a later agreed-upon time, in order to integrate your Foster Dog as smoothly (and safely) as possible?

Does your property have a fenced in yard?
If YES, please describe it in the box below. Is it 100% secure? How tall are the fences? Is there ANY potential for the dog to get out?
*NOTE: you do not need to have a fenced in yard in order to be approved as a foster. We are concerned with the security aspect and the dog not being able to get out.
While I am away from home, I agree to keep my Foster Dog in a kennel (provided by TPC if needed) so they are 100% safe and secure.
TPC will reimburse for my Foster Dog's food, necessary supplies and veterinary care at a partnered vet. I understand that all purchases must be approved prior, otherwise reimbursement will NOT be approved.
I will request all reimbursements at the following link: http://www.emailmeform.com/builder/emf/ThePittyCommittee/REIMBURSE
I agree to house my Foster Dog indoors as if they were a family pet and to give them sufficient love, care and attention. I will not use my Foster Dog in any sort of fighting, breeding or cruelty, nor will I give them away to any friend, family member or other party.
I agree to keep my Foster Dog leashed and collared at all times while outside. While indoors, a collar with a secured tag (provided by TPC) will be worn by my foster dog.
I will not take my Foster Dog to a dog park or to any off-leash areas.
I understand that my Foster Dog may take time to settle into a new environment. I'm aware of the issues that may arise in the beginning stages, including- but not limited to-barking, urinating or defecating indoors, destruction of furniture, crying, not wanting to go in crate, etc. I understand that these issues are not forever, and I agree to work through these issues with the support of TPC. I promise to be patient and understanding with my Foster Dog.
I understand that my Foster Dog may have a largely unknown history and TPC makes no claims, warranties or guarantees about any dogs behavior, breed and/or temperament.
I waive all rights and claims against TPC regardless of the expense or damages incurred during entire duration of fostering. Upon my Foster Dog's arrival into my possession, I understand I take on legal ownership of dog until foster contract has expired and dog has been released from my care at a mutually agreed upon time. I will not pursue legal action against TPC and will hold them harmless in the event that any injuries to myself, other persons or damages to property arise. In the off chance that damages to property, self or other parties occur (whether to human or animals), I will be held legally responsible. Therefore, I always promise to be in control of my Foster Dog to the very best of my abilities.
