Thank you for your interest in The Pixel Fund.

Please be aware: We are an all–volunteer rescue with no paid employees. Your application is being processed by a volunteer who most likely has a job, a family, and other responsibilities. We ask that you please be patient with the process. You will receive a confirmation email after submitting your application (check spam if you do not see it). It can take 48-72 hours for the next step depending on how quickly we have someone available to review your information.

Application to Foster a Dog or Cat

We are unable to approve fosters outside of ME, FL, and GA at this time.

Please complete all fields applicable to your application. Blanks fields will cause a delay in processing your application. If the question does not apply, please enter n/a.

Prior to the approval of your application, we require a vet check on your existing pets, a landlord check, if applicable, and a home visit. Some home visits are conducted in person, while others are conducted virtually. I understand that if I rent and do not provide contact information for my landlord on my application, my application will not be processed.

I acknowledge and accept these terms.

Dog Fosters Only

Please tell us a little about your lifestyle, your family, and any special activities in which your foster dog would be included. If you have any requirements or requests for a dog, please let us know so that we can more carefully match a dog to your lifestyle.

Is there anything else you feel we should know about you and why you would be a great foster home?

Additional Information

Have you, or any member of your family or household ever been cited for leash law violations or cruelty to animals?

*

The State of Maine requires a quarantine period for all dogs and cats transported from out-of-state - 48 hours for adults and 5 days for puppies and kittens under 6 months. During this time, the animal may not have any contact with any Maine pets.

*

Are you willing to assume all risks and liability for the animal you are fostering and to hold harmless The Pixel Fund, Pixel’s Posse, Inc., its volunteers, officers, directors and staff for any damage, injury or illness it may cause to anyone or anything while in your care?*

*

Do you agree to provide, at your own expense, shelter, food, love and affection, safe and appropriate exercise for the foster animal, and to alert The Pixel Fund as soon as possible if an issue arises that may require medical care (TPF will pay necessary veterinary expenses, and will pay for reasonable emergency expenses should the foster be unable to reach a TPR representative, and if the foster determines that a life-threatening medical emergency exists).*

*

Is there a possibility that you may wish to adopt this pet?*

*

If you decide to adopt the animal you are fostering, The Pixel Fund will pay for any veterinarian expenses incurred during the first 15 days of fostering. You will be responsible for any expenses thereafter, retroactive to the 15th day. Those fees, if any, will be included in the adoption fee. Do you understand and agree to this arrangement?*

*

Do you understand that this animal has been rescued from a shelter or animal control facility and may have parasites, diseases, behavioral issues, or other risks that are unknown to us as we do not know its complete history?*

*

Do you agree to notify a TPF representative immediately if the animal escapes from your care or is found to be missing, so that TPF can begin a search and notify appropriate facilities to increase the chances of reunification?*

*

Release of Liability

​You will accept the animal and specifically release and hold harmless The Pixel Fund, Pixel’s Posse, Inc., and all of its agents, employees, directors, officers and volunteers from any and all claims and liability in connection with the animal for any reason, and you assume all risks and responsibilities for the care, transport, training and behavior of the animal, including any injury or damage it may cause to people, property or other animals, as well as any rules, regulations or requirements for the importation of pets into the state in which you reside (if you do not reside in Maine or Florida), and licensure and other local ordinances.

I/we further indemnify and agree to hold harmless The Pixel Fund, Pixel’s Posse, Inc., its officers, directors, volunteers, agents and employees from any and all losses, fines, claims or damages, including reasonable attorney fees, arising out of or relating to the foster animal or the voluntary foster care of the animal, including any claims for injury, or damage to persons or property caused by the foster animal.
