Becoming An LRR Foster Home

Becoming a foster home can be a very rewarding experience. Every time you foster a Lab, you’re giving it a second chance at life. Plus, it gives you a chance to meet, train, and love many dogs. Even though your time with each will be brief, it will leave a lasting impression on you. If you are interested in becoming a foster home, follow these steps:

Complete an adoption application in its entirety and sign and return the application to LRR. We use the same application for foster and adoptive homes. If you rent, submit to us written permission from your landlord to be a foster home for dogs.

After we have evaluated your application a telephone interview may be conducted, followed by a house check by an LRR volunteer. If you are approved, you will receive an LRR foster home contract to read, sign, and return. Then you will participate in an LRR foster home orientation, and will be given your first foster Lab!

Once you have been approved, you should purchase a crate for the foster lab if you do not already have one available.
