Fostering a Rescued Lab
Midwest Labrador Retriever Rescue, Inc. (MLRR) is always in need
of foster homes for our rescued Labs. The number of available foster homes
limits the number of dogs that we can rescue. Labs may have to be placed on
a waiting list until a foster home is available. Unfortunately, some dogs
have a limited amount of time before a shelter or animal control will have
to put them down. Clearly, foster homes play one of the most significant roles
in MLRR's rescue efforts.
If you would like more information about fostering a rescued Lab, please download
and read this form.
Upon acceptance of the application, an MLRR volunteer will contact
you to arrange a home visit.
You will then be notified if you are approved for fostering.
Please do not offer to foster for us if you just want to use it as
a way of choosing a dog to adopt. Fostering is very rewarding, but it is also
requires hard work and dedication. We have a policy that foster homes cannot
adopt a Lab from MLRR within 6 months of the time they begin fostering. We
do not view our foster homes as potential adopters. If you want to adopt a
Lab, please fill out the adoption application instead of the fostering application.
What we need most in a foster home is someone who is truly dedicated to helping
us save the lives of homeless Labrador Retrievers.
