Hank is a 9-year-old yellow Lab who weighs 70 pounds. He is sweet and good with dogs, cats and kids. He has some anxiety that is treated with medications. Hank is eligible for our Foster to Adopt program.
This program is for puppies less than 1 year old, dogs over 7 years old and select medical case dogs, including dogs that test positive for heartworm. An approved adopter acts as a foster home for 2 weeks before deciding whether or not to officially adopt the dog. That time is extended for dogs with extensive medical needs (like heartworm) since treatment times are typically longer. During the FTA period, MLRR covers all medical expenses. If at the end of the period, the family decides not to finalize an adoption, they will continue to foster until another adopter or foster is found.
