About

**THIS VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITY IS AVAILABLE THROUGHOUT THE STATE OF FLORIDA; IT IS NOT LIMITED TO A PARTICULAR ZIPCODE.

Labrador Retriever Rescue of Florida Inc. (LRROF) houses our rescued Labs temporarily with volunteer "foster parents" while we work to find them permanent adoptive homes. Foster parents care for a Lab in their own home, keep veterinary appointments (*LRROF pays all vet fees*), teach basic leash training, socialization, etc., according to the particular dog's needs, and meet with approved prospective adopters (they come to you). Foster parents can specify characteristics of dogs they are willing to foster. They also have final adoption approval for their foster dog.

Foster parents play one of the most significant roles in LRROF's rescue efforts: availability of foster homes limits the number of dogs that we can rescue. Sometimes, Labs must be placed on a waiting list until a foster home is available. Unfortunately, some dogs have a limited amount of time before a shelter or animal control will have to put them down.
