Welcome to the SPCA PETS SNAP of Montgomery County Texas website! Thank you for visiting and your interest in our rescue pets & organization.
Thank you for your interest in our Foster Pet Program. The purpose of foster care is to allow a dog or cat to live in a home environment while awaiting permanent placement, permitting the Foster Family to evaluate the pet and to work with the pet to reincorporate him or her back into a home environment. A home environment is less stressful on the pet than a boarding facility or shelter. The exposure the pet gets from being treated as "one of the family" (walks, outings, etc...) often speeds up the adoption process. SPCA PETS SNAP of M.C. considers our Foster Families to be essential to the welfare and proper placement of our pets, and wishes the experience to be enjoyable and free from misunderstandings. Please note that we have the following guidelines: The Foster Family will follow all relevant procedures and guidelines of SPCA PETS SNAP of M.C. regarding the pet placed in the foster home and will not make decisions or take actions regarding the pet's veterinary care or placement without prior approval from SPCA PETS SNAP of M.C.. The veterinarians working with SPCA PETS SNAP of M.C. bill us directly for approved medical services provided to our pets. In the event the Foster Family expends funds for pre-approved veterinary care, SPCA PETS SNAP of M.C. will reimburse the Foster Family. The Foster Family will provide the pet with humane care and maintain the pet in accordance with all current state, county and municipal laws and ordinances while the pet resides with the Foster Family. The Foster Family will provide the pet with necessary exercise and will not keep the pet chained or restrained. SPCA PETS SNAP of M.C. pets should not be kept as "outside only" pets unless prior approval has been received from SPCA PETS SNAP of M.C.. The Foster Family agrees to provide the pet with adequate food, water, shelter, affection, socialization, exercise, medical assistance, and to strive to increase the adopt-ability of the pet. If the pet cannot be kept by the Foster Family, the Foster Family shall notify SPCA PETS SNAP of M.C. immediately. The pet SHALL NOT BE SOLD, ABANDONED, RELINQUISHED TO A SHELTER OR POUND OR ANY THIRD PARTY WITHOUT THE PRIOR APPROVAL OF SPCA PETS SNAP of M.C.. THE FOSTER FAMILY UNDERSTANDS THAT SPCA PETS SNAP of M.C. AND ITS REPRESENTATIVES HAVE LIMITED INFORMATION REGARDING THE TEMPERAMENT OF THE PET OR ITS HABITS. THE FOSTER FAMILY WILL TAKE ALL REASONABLE PRECAUTIONS (THROUGH THE USE OF CRATES, LEASHES, SUPERVISION AND COMMON SENSE) TO ENSURE THE PET DOES NOT RUN LOOSE, BECOME A NUISANCE, DESTROY PROPERTY, INJURE OR BE INJURED BY ANOTHER ANIMAL OR INJURE OR BE INJURED BY ANY PERSON. The pet is and shall remain the property of SPCA PETS SNAP of M.C. and may be removed by SPCA PETS SNAP of M.C. from the Foster Family at any time and without prior notice. The Foster Family agrees to be courteous, helpful and honest to potential adopters and to fully cooperate in accommodating those who wish to see the pet. In the event the Foster Family wishes to permanently adopt the pet, a signed SPCA PETS SNAP of M.C. Adoption Contract must be submitted to SPCA PETS SNAP of M.C. along with the requested adoption fee. The Foster Family should insure that all of its pets are up to date on their vaccinations (including, without limitation, bordatella, parvo, rabies, distemper) prior to bringing the pet into the foster home.
