What is fostering?
Our Foster Families provide temporary in-home care for animals until they are ready to be adopted. Foster Families help us provide the best possible care for all our dogs and play a very important role in MI Lab Rescue’s success rate in finding “furever” homes.
All veterinary care, food and other animal supplies are provided by MI Lab Rescue. Fostering can last from a few days to several months depending on the needs of the animals and the availability of the Foster Family. Extra training is provided for unique circumstances and medical assistance and questions are handled very quickly.
Wondering where you might best help?
These are some ways that our Foster Families care for canines:
- Puppies who need socialization, and a bit of basic manners training so they will be ready for adoption.
- Caring for bottle-fed puppies. These are orphan pups that are very young without a mother. They will need round-the-clock care until they are old enough to eat on their own.
- Any size dog that needs help with training so that they can become ready for adoption.
- There are times that a dog has a medical need, like heart-worm treatment, that is best cared for in a quiet, home environment.
