Ask up front what your out-of-pocket expenses will be. The rescue group should cover any veterinary expenses, but it may or may not pay for items such as food or cat litter. In addition, if you know that you will be traveling for work or vacation during the time you’ll be fostering, say so up front so the rescue group can decide whether it can afford the expense of a pet sitter or will help you find someone else to care for the animal while you’re gone. * Kate’s Rescue covers the cost of vet visits, and necessary supplies. Being non profit we cannot afford special everything for all 130 active dogs. That being said we have a list of approved brands or items we will reimburse for. If a foster buys outside of this list, or without permissions we will not reimburse. Fosters are free to supply their foster with whatever they want out of pocket, there are only some things we reimburse for. Most toys, beds, collars, leashes, treats, kennels, flea treatments ect will not be reimbursed as we have these on hand for fosters to ask for.
