Foster Information

First and foremost, we want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts that you are
interested in fostering for The Labelle Foundation. The selfless act of opening your
heart and home to one of our puppies/dogs is life-saving, and we couldn’t do it
without you.

There are a few guidelines to follow, so this is a pleasant experience for everyone.
The safety of our animals always comes first.

Step 1. Please fill out our online foster application. We will then call you to review your
application, discuss the fostering process, and answer any questions you may have.

Step 2. Please fill in the foster form with your availability dates and timeline (we ask for a 3 to 4-week commitment) to foster. Also, if you have any bottle feeding experience or have fostered underage puppies, medical puppies, or nursing bitches in the past, please give a brief description of your background.

Step 3. As soon as we have a dog that needs a foster, we will reach out via email or text to
see if you’re available. If the animal has any medical issues or needs special care, we will
provide medications and special food if necessary.

Step 4. When you receive your foster dog, you will also get a few supplies needed (we have
crates, leash, collar, toys, treats, food, etc.).

*All supplies must be returned to The Labelle Foundation when your dog is adopted so that
we can continue to use them for future dogs we save. Please do not give them to the
adopter.

IN CASE OF AN EMERGENCY : If, for any reason, a dog/puppy gets sick or isn’t thriving, under
your care, please text Laura (323-842-4840) or Sabrina (323-603-7229) immediately. Signs to
look out for are vomiting, diarrhea, and lethargy. Do not rush any dogs to an animal hospital
without discussing the situation with us. It can be extremely costly and unnecessary. We have a
team of veterinarians that we work with, and many times we can personally assist with the
situation and get the puppy back on track. Please remember to stay calm and communicative
with us 24/7.

*While the animal is in your care, he must stay with you. Please do not leave or give the animal
to friends, family, or neighbors. Foster dogs should be kept on a leash at all times outside of the
home unless they are in a private enclosed backyard.

* If you can’t say goodbye to your foster dog or you have friends interested, you are more than
welcome to put in an application to adopt them! We ask that you let us know as soon as you do
so that we can put it on our radar. If there are any meet and greets already set up, we do have
to honor those. Because we have specific criteria for our forever homes, we are the only ones
that can choose and adopt out our dogs. We do encourage you to take photos, share with your
Social media pages, and tag us.

Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or concerns while fostering. Again, we
appreciate your support and love.
