Sunshine is a 5-year-old female yellow Lab who is currently undergoing treatment for heartworm. She weighs 49 pounds. Sunshine is good with dogs and kids but timid at first around cats. Sunshine is eligible for our Foster to Adopt program. This program is for puppies, seniors, and select medical cases. Typically an approved adopter acts as a foster home for 2 weeks (or more if undergoing heartworm treatment) before deciding whether or not to adopt the dog. During this period, MLRR covers all medical expenses. If at the end of the 2 weeks, the family decides not to finalize an adoption, they will foster until another adopter or foster is found.
