As a foster parent for the Suncoast Humane Society, I agree to abide by the Society’s policies and procedures. I understand that although SHS takes reasonable care to screen animals for foster care placement it makes no guarantee relating to the animals health, behavior or actions. I further agree foster pets must be returned to SHS upon request.
