My submission of this on-line application does not create any duty or obligation on the part of LFDRG to place any dog in my home. I specifically acknowledge that LFDRG may in its sole and unlimited discretion decline my application in its entirety or as to a specific dog for any reason or for no reason whatsoever.
Any LFDRG dog placed in my home will reside in my home as primarily an indoor dog. I will provide such dog with adequate and appropriate food, water, shelter, training, socialization, affection, and medical care as such dog requires and I will adhere in all instances to the related contractual agreement related to such dog.
In the event I foster or adopt a dog under this application, I acknowledge that I am able and willing to spend the time and money necessary to provide adequate and appropriate food, water, shelter, training, socialization, affection, medical treatment, and proper care throughout the entire life of the dog. I further acknowledge that any unaltered dog adopted by me, must be altered within 90 days of adoption, or sooner should LFDRG request an earlier alteration date.

I understand that LFDRG is not responsible for the accuracy of information received about the temperament, behavior, habits, socialization, physical conditions or medical conditions of dogs available for fostering or adoption. I understand that it is my duty and my sole responsibility to see and evaluate the dog myself before agreeing to foster such dog or requesting to adopt such dog.
I will not relinquish, abandon, or dispose of any LFDRG dog placed in my home in any way. If I cannot keep such dog, I will return the dog to LFDRG. I understand I will not be reimbursement for any expenses (transportation related or otherwise) if this happens.
