PLEASE CALL YOUR VET'S OFFICE AND GIVE THEM PERMISSION TO RELEASE INFORMATION TO OBAH -- THEY ARE REQUIRED TO ABIDE BY HIPPA REGULATIONS.
I understand that by submitting this application, I authorize OBAH to conduct reference checks as well as checking any other means to determine if I am suitable to offer a home for an animal. I also understand that because of the situation that this animal came from, I do not hold OBAH or their volunteers responsible for any unknown conditions or illnesses not identified at adoption time. I also understand that when I make this commitment to foster/adopt an animal, OBAH will be bringing this particular animal home for me and only me. We do not have a physical shelter to house these animals, so you must agree to the responsibility of picking this animal up at the designated location and caring for him/her. If for any reason, the animal does not “work out” OBAH will make every effort to rehome him/her, but you are responsible for the care in your home until this happens. I understand that this process may take weeks or months. If you are unsure, please don’t fill out an application at this time. Please wait until you are prepared for a new animal. I understand that many of these animals are very scared, timid and shy after all they have gone through, and I will take the time and appropriate steps to help the animal become acclimated to his/her new home, other pets and family members. We generally inform people that you will need to give the animal a minimum of 4 weeks before their “true colors” begin to show through. Most animals don’t take that long. I agree to provide any necessary treatment for this animal that the veterinarian deems appropriate I also understand that I am responsible for all medical bills for the animal that I foster or adopt. I agree not to breed this animal or allow him/her to come into contact with another intact animal until he/she is fixed. I understand that with unaltered animals at time of adoption, I will be required to sign a Spay/Neuter Contract and I agree to abide by ALL conditions set forth in that contract. I will provide any and all necessary training, obedience, behavioral, veterinary as well as natural/holistic assistance for this animal. I agree not to abuse (including hitting, force fetching, shock collars, etc) or neglect this animal under any and all circumstances. If for any reason this animal needs to be euthanized, I will contact OBAH first and inform them of the reason as well as providing the name of the veterinarian who evaluated the animal. Furthermore and most important, I will give this animal unconditional love and care until his time on earth has ceased. If I need to give this animal up at any time, I will contact OBAH first and make arrangements with them. I understand and agree that If I surrender this animal back to OBAH within 30 days of signed adoption, I will receive 50% of the adoption fee returned- after 30 days I waive my right to adoption fee reimbursement. If give away this animal to any person, place, shelter, or rescue without written permission from OBAH, I will withstand a $500 fine.
