LRHS utilizes Foster Parents to help us care for pets with special medical or behavioral conditions. Staff are at LRHS 8 hours a day, 7 days a week but some of our pets require more attention. Examples of pets who require foster care are:
- Kittens or puppies under 8 weeks of age
- Cats or dogs who are recovering from a treatment or surgery
- Cats or dogs who have behavioral issues that may be remedied by around the clock training and consistency (such as potty-training).
This program helps free up space while allowing us to take in more pets and ensuring all animals receive the special care they need.
To become a Foster Parent you will be required to complete the Foster Application Form. Once approved we will contact you to schedule a home check to ensure your home is safe for pets. If all goes well, LRHS will call when in need of an extra special person to care for an extra special pet. When fostering, LRHS will provide everything you will need from food to medical treatments for the foster pets in your care. Call or stop by to inquire about becoming a LRHS Foster Parent.
