WE NEED FOSTER HOMES!
Please help to save a Labrador Retriever by becoming a volunteer foster home with Rudy's Rescue. Temporary homes are needed for adult dogs, seniors and puppies. You will work with our foster coordinator to find the right foster for you and your family. If you cannot foster a dog, perhaps you can pay to have a dog boarded at a local facility until their permanent home is found.
What is a foster home?
A foster home is a safe place for our dogs to stay while their new permanent home is found. This keeps the dogs out of the shelter environment, sometimes saving them from death. They begin their journey in a home where they can once again begin to bond with people. Labrador Retrievers are a social breed. They long to be in a home with someone to love. A foster parent provides food, water, shelter, love, basic training, toys or any other daily need the dog/puppy may have during their temporary stay at your home.
Vet bills and visits are handled by Rudy's Rescue and are not the foster homes responsibility. If your foster has a medical emergency while in your care, all approved vet visits will be reimbursed by Rudy's Rescue.
