The best way to help rescue Labradors in our community is to foster one! Foster carers are always needed. We place no obligation on you to take on one of our dogs, we understand that there are only certain times when people can care for an (extra) animal.
If you can open your home and enough time to provide temporary care for one of our rescues, please contact us for more information.
How long will I have the dog for?
Because labs are popular they usually find a new home quite quickly. Some of our dogs have found homes within a week but some may take up to a month or two.
What will it cost me to foster one of your dogs?
Mostly your time and some food. We pay for all vet costs.
What do I do if I want to find out more information?
Labrador Rescue values our foster carers. That is why we offer support wherever we can while you have a dog. For more information about foster caring please contact us for an information pack. You can also read this document on Foster Caring with Lab Rescue Click Here to Read
Being a foster carer is a rewarding experience!
"When people ask how I can bear to give up rescues, my response is that as I have my own dogs, I look on my rescues as if I'm looking after one of my family's dogs. They are here to stay for a bit but I'll give them back." - Frances, Canberra
"We love the foster dogs, they are a part of our family for a short time and it is a wonderful feeling knowing that you have helped save a life, sometimes help to rehabilitate and then introduce them to a perfect forever family. Yes it’s sad to say goodbye but we are their surrogate family for however long they need it." - Kylie, Sydney
