Request to place a beagle into temporary foster care.
Please fill out this form as accurately as you can. It will help us to place your pet into the best suited foster home.
Once we have received your application to “Place an animal into temporary foster care”, we will write up a contract with the estimated costs and further details. This contract must be signed by both yourself and Beagles & Hounds Queensland before your dog can be placed into its foster home.
All medical costs associated with your dog will remain your responsibility. We will not allow a dog to suffer in pain while in our care. For non urgent medical issues we will contact you first, to see what you would like to do. For urgent medical assistance where your dog is in pain or suffering, it will be taken to the vet for treatment.
If you are unable to pay these costs, a payment plan can be negotiated with Beagles & Hounds Queensland. If you become aware that you are no longer in a position to keep your dog, it will be placed up for adoption and re-homed in accordance with our rehoming procedure.
If you are unable to provide the food, or pay the full weekly fee, the difference in costs will accumulate while your dog is in our care. In order to have your dog to be released back to you, a minimum of 50% of these costs must be paid prior to returning your animal to you. Estimated costs will be included on the contract based on your answers on this form.
Visiting your dog while it is in care. We understand that you still want to see your dog while it is in care. We will endeavour to place the dog into a foster home as close as possible to your intended location. This is subject to having a suitable foster carer in your location. It is up to you and the foster carer to organise mutually convenient times and locations for you to visit your dog.
Abandoning Your Dog. If we can no longer get in touch with you, or the weekly fee for your dog has not been paid for a period of no less than 1 month, we will assume that you are no longer capable of caring for your dog and it will be rehomed as per our rehoming policy.
Questions. If you have any questions, or there is something you don’t agree with, please get in touch with us.
Memberships. To enable us to place your dog into temporary foster care, you must be a member of Beagles & Hounds Queensland.
If you are requesting foster care on the grounds of financial hardship, the cost of membership can be deferred, and paid when you are ready to collect your dog once you are back on your feet.
