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."


This handsome boy is Freddie. He is an extremely nice black lab mix, about 3 years old and weighs 70 lbs. Fred came to us from a very bad shelter and did not have much time left. It was his lucky day when one of our volunteers spotted him and made arrangements to get him to our rescue. Fred tested positive for heartworm shortly after he came to us, but he has since had his treatment and is now heartworm free and in perfect health. He is a happy boy and shows it by wagging his tail all the time. Fred likes the hugs and attention he gets and loves being around people. Fred gets along well with other dogs, but is usually the alpha in the crowd. He would be considered medium energy and loves playing fetch, running, hiking, going for long walks in the woods and just being a part of what is going on. Fred would make a loving and loyal addition to most any family. Fred has been neutered, is heartworm free, up to date on vaccinations including rabies and is micro-chipped. He has been kept on heartworm preventative, flea/tick preventative and is crate trained. If you would like to learn more about this wonderful boy, please go to our website and indicate 'Fred' in the notes section of the online adoption application.
