By submitting this application, I certify that the information I have given is true and I am serious about fostering a bulldog from Southern California Bulldog Rescue (SCBR). I realize that any misrepresentation of facts may result in losing the privilege to foster an SCBR rescue an/or the removal of the fostered dog by SCBR.

I understand that SCBR has the right to deny my request to foster a Bulldog from their organization. I understand that a Foster Agreement is part of the foster process and will be enforced. Once a dog is placed into a foster home, and it is found to be neglected or abused, SCBR reserves the right to reclaim the dog at any given time without notice.
