From 2005 board meeting
We must set a limit where the Treasurer may pay out for any vet bills incurred for a rescue dog without prior authorization
of the Board of Directors. Basic vet care, ie: vet visit for health check, shots, de-worming, HEART WORM CHECK if necessary
should be covered and I suggest the Treasurer have authority to send a cheque totaling no more than $200.00 per individual
dog for immediate care.
If further work is necessary, an estimate should be submitted to the Club to be authorized by the Board of Directors based
on immediate need. This may be done via email /or phone call to the President who will contact the rest of the Board to get
immediate approval. In case of emergency ie: the dog is in immediate need of emergency treatment, such as hit by a car and
chances of survival depend on immediate care, the Treasurer may be authorized to pay out $500.00 IF THE PROGNOSIS IS GOOD
AND IF THE DOG IS YOUNG ENOUGH TO BE EASILY PLACED Amount to the rescuer. (please indicate the amount you consider to
No funds are to be paid by the Treasurer outside of these guidelines without prior authorization of the Board of Directors.
In all cases, the President is to be kept advised as to all circumstances of rescue, so the President may make a full report
to the Board.
All Schipperkes that are brought into rescue must be fully reported to the Board of Directors via the President. Age, if
known, circumstances such as owner surrender, rescued from SPCA, found dog, TEMPERAMENT etc. Upon placement, name,
address and all information on adopter must be provided to the SCC.
An adoption fee must be set for all dogs adopted out. Minimum fee suggested is $250.00 to cover vet bills, food, expenses.
In certain cases, such as elderly dogs, this fee may be reduced to $100.00 or waived upon prior approval of the Board. AGREED
An adoption application must be filled out providing name, address, vet etc from the adopter and kept on file by the Secretary.
A waiver from the adopter must also be completed absolving the SCC from any future responsibility for the care of the dog,
and any legal issues that may arise ie: if the dog bites a person, passes away, etc.
If the rescue person decides to keep any dog they have in their care as a rescue dog, they will reimburse the SCC for vet
bills incurred and paid by the SCC or pay the appropriate adoption fee that any person would be expected to pay. AGREED
Your input would be appreciated as soon as possible so that the Board may discuss and approve guidelines for rescue. Please
send your responses to the President who will compile them and send to the Board for discussion and final approval.
