- ADOPTION/VOLUNTEER/FOSTER APPLICATION
Adoption or Foster in a qualified, non-breeding home is required. In order to ensure that an animal is placed in the environment best suited to meet his/her needs, all applicants must successfully complete the Adoption/Foster placement process. All placements will be made in the best interest of the animal and the adoptive family. The Adoption/Foster Placement Process requires:
1. Completion of this form
2. Veterinarian reference check. Please be advised for the health of all animals, all dogs and cats in the home MUST be up to date on rabies, parvo/distemper, bordetella, and heartworm testing, and those vaccinations needed for felines. Also all birds
in the home must have had a wellness check up and a gram stain within the past year. We cannot, and will not, process any applications if your pets are not up to date. If you fill out the application and your animals are not current we again cannot process your application UNTIL all pets are brought up to date, therefore you delay your adoption/foster process.
3. A brief foster/adoption tutorial on-line (will take about 15 minutes) by the potential adopter. Instructions sent after application is completed.
4. A pre-adoption home consult with an FPR representative.
5. A home visit with the animal you want to adopt in his/her foster home
6. If the match is agreeable by both the applicant and FPR, a signed an adoption contract and paid adoption fee will be required before the bird is released. You can then take your new family member home!
