Chris Hunt call the meeting to order and welcomed all to the Foster Meeting.

Theresa Vold spoke about how all fosters meetings are open to the public although the Board Meetings are not public but all meeting minutes are posted publicly within 48 hrs on Rescue 55021 website.

Brenda Selberg, Treasurer gave financial information, checking account balance $2920.60; 12 dogs were adopted in July/August.

The surrender fee of $50/animal must now be paid in cash. Rational:  Rescue 55021 received 2 dogs that the owner had surrendered and they wrote a $100 check for the surrender fee and then stopped payment on check  and neither dog had any vetting.  Both dogs were vetted and adopted into wonderful forever homes with rescue paying all vetting costs.

 

Brenda Selberg and Theresa Vold spoke on four new policies:

*If the Foster Home chooses to adopt the animal, they shall be given first opportunity prior to be posted on PetFinder and shall contact the Executive Director to arrange for the adoption.  The foster animal shall be fully vetted to make sure of health concerns are addressed before making the decision to keep the animal.  

**A Foster Home can take up to 30 days if they need to take a break.  After 30 days they will need to let the Executive Director know if they plan to stay or leave.  If a Foster Home chooses to leave and wants to return at a later date they  will need to reapply as a foster home to Rescue 55021.  The exception to this is that the Foster Family will to have a beginning and ending time when they will be taking a break because of going on vacation, having surgery or illness, etc..

***Adoption Forms:  When an adoption form is completed, make sure to print out the adoption application to go along with the adoption contract.  This information is needed to complete the registration of the microchips on the application.  If unable to print out contact the Executive Director for Assistance or Brenda Selberg,.

****All contracts/microchip forms, applications and checks will go directly to the Treasurer as soon as possible for accurate record keeping and bank deposits.  Only  authorized personal will deposit checks and cash into Rescue 55021's bank account.

 

Theresa Vold discussed  the importance of always talking to her about all vetting issues your foster may have.  If your foster is at the vet and extra procedures, that are not already listed on vetting sheets,  must go thru Theresa, as an example, dentals-there has been some questionable/or unneeded dental charges.  The health and well being of the animal is always the first upmost priority.

At this time Rescue will not be using Heartland Animal Hospital/Faribault for dentals due to cost.  Theresa will be addressing this with them.

Gina Nisbit is in charge of putting together the adoption folders. orientation folders.  If there is any information that needs to added to these folder should be forwarded to Gina.  Gina has offered her assistance as needed.

Hannah (a friend of the Rescue) will be coming to our events and taking pictures/videos to be added to our social media.  Hannah will also be available to take pictures of the fosters for the web pages.  You can contact Theresa if you would Hannah to help you with you photography needs.

Gina Nisbit who foster one of our medically fragile dogs at this time gave a report on how Bella is doing...this information is going to be featured on a new tab on our public Facebook page.  We will be doing this on our rescue animals that we are asking for donations for to help with the extensive costs.  We feel that the public would like updates of the animals they are supporting.  Jyl Suzanne Campbell will also provide information on Willow.

Kacy Sammon gave a report about the horses she is Boarding/Fostering for Rescue 55021. We will be highlighting the horses in one of our new sections on web page.

 

Kacy Sammon has stepped up to help with social media, she is going to be adding adoption stories and updates. Kacy and Cyndy will be collaborating on developing a spot on our public Facebook page for highlighting the Pet of Month/Week.  Kacy was added as an administrator on Facebook page

Also Rescue 55021 will be purchasing a new web program and designer.  Board member, Cyndy Fuller, will be trained on new program.

 

Theresa Vold spoke to all members about the conflict of interest form that foster/volunteers signed upon orientation to Rescue 55021 and that anyone one that doesn't abide by this contract will be asked leave Rescue 55021.

All Fosters when doing an adoption can tell the adopting family to go register their adopted animal at PetSmart and they will receive many offers from the store. 

PetSmart will be taking donations for Rescue 55021 now, we are fully registered with PetSmart to be there local rescue. They will also be offering our cats that are up for adoption.  Thank you PetSmart for the collaboration.

National Adoption Days is coming up September 13-15th.  We will be have an event at PetSmart on this weekend, offing microchipping for donation, showing our adoptable pets, donation sales of stickers and bags.
