Becoming a Lucky Lab foster parent is the single most rewarding way you can help homeless labs. Without foster homes, Lucky Lab Rescue cannot rescue many of the labs that need our help. Quite often we are forced to turn down dogs because there are no foster homes available. We could dramatically increase the number of labs we save by continually adding new foster homes. 
Fostering can be challenging at first but in the end extremely rewarding. Most of the labs we bring into Lucky Lab Rescue have been in a shelter with very little attention or obedience training. If you are interested in fostering, you will probably need a lot of patience and have the ability to provide tender 

loving care as well as firm instruction and directions for your foster. 

But when you see a dog through the whole phase of rescue (from shelter dog to loving foster dog) it can be one of the greatest experiences for a family or any individual wanting to help a homeless dog find a better life.

If you are interested in fostering, please send an e-mail to and in the subject line enter "Fostering."


Meet Irwin
What a beautiful and strikingly handsome boy ! Irwin is an awesome black Lab with a very shiny silky black coat. He is a young boy, about 1 to 2 years old and weighs 55 lbs. He came to us from a high kill shelter after being picked up as a stray. Irwin loves people and is very friendly with everyone. He gets so excited when he sees someone coming and if you have a good boy treat, he will love you forever. He takes treats very well. Irwin would be considered a medium/high energy boy and he loves to play hard. Chasing the ball or whatever toy is thrown is his favorite thing. He doesn't always bring it back, but if you throw another toy, he immediately drops what he has and goes for the new one. So much fun watching him have that much fun. Besides being such a great playmate he would be great at jogging, hiking, running on the beach or taking long walks in the park. He really does do pretty well on the leash too. Irwin is good with his other canine buddies and loves romping with them although he is the Alpha. Because of his energy, he would definitely be to much for the kitties. Irwin is neutered, up to date on vaccinations including rabies, heartworm negative, and micro-chipped. He has been kept on flea/tick preventative and heartworm preventative. He is also crate trained. If you would like a fun companion to join you in your active lifestyle, then Irwin would be your boy. Please complete the online adoption application and indicate this handsome boy in the notes section.
