In the face of a declared emergency, I am requesting the Animal Response Group take this animal in to custody, transport it as necessary, shelter it until the end of the disaster incident, administer medical care as necessary in the determination of a licensed veterinarian, and return it to the legal owner if that owner becomes known to the ARG within 6 months (180 days) of this date.

I understand that this animal may have been and will possibly be exposed to contagious diseases and other risks during the time it is in ARG's care. I agree to not hold ARG responsible for the health or death of this animal. I understand that the animal will be put into foster care at the end of the disaster incident if the owner has not claimed it by that time. I understand that if the owner is not found, or if the owner relinquishes ownership in writing to the ARG, or if the owner has not claimed this animal, then this animal will be adopted to a new owner 180 days from this date unless other arrangements are made in writing between ARG and the owner before that date.
