LIFETIME FOSTER AN OLDER DOG
- Dogs aged 9 and over that come into our care are rehomed as
Lifetime Foster Dogs.
- It takes someone special to offer a home to an older dog but Labrador Welfare believe these dogs are particularly special and deserve the security of a good home in which to remain and enjoy their twilight years.
to lifetime foster a dog of 9 or over are considered in much
the same way as applications to adopt and will be subject to
the same careful matching process and
home visit criteria as
if the dog were being formally adopted.
foster carers taking on a lifetime foster dog from Labrador
Welfare are expected to provide a secure, loving
environment, food, exercise and companionship.
In return, carers can expect full back-up support from the charity who will also assist with costs associated with veterinary treatment with the exception of vaccinations, flea and worm treatments and minor procedures such as nail clipping.
- Foster carers
can be assured of regular contact from our dedicated
Rehoming Team who will keep in touch for the rest of the
dog’s natural life to offer support and help when needed
- The undemanding friendship and unconditional love that comes with opening your heart and home to an older dog are what make lifetime fostering a richly rewarding experience.
- If you think
you’ve got what it takes to provide an older dog with a
loving, lifetime foster home we’d like to hear from you.
Prospective foster carers should complete and submit our standard Application Form (available in PDF and Word
versions) to enable a member of the team to get in touch to
discuss things further.
