Default Erlichia - is it contagious?

One of the rescues has it and is in need of a foster home. We are considering taking her, but I didn't know if it is contagious. I know it says it can't be passed from canine to human, but what about my furkids?

Thanks!

it has to be transmitted directly from tick to dog, iirc.
