LRHS utilizes Foster Parents to help care for pets with special medical or behavioral conditions. Staff are at LRHS 8 hours a day, 7 days a week but some pets require more attention. Examples:
- Kittens or puppies under 8 weeks of age
- Cats or dogs recovering from a medical treatment or surgery
- Cats or dogs who have behavioral issues that are better remedied by around the clock training and consistency.
This program also helps free up space in the shelter which allows us to help even more animals!
