Our foster homes are an essential entity of our rescue. Without foster homes we can not operate. If you are interested in a lab or lab mix this is a perfect way to find out if you are ready. As we need and value you in order for this rescue to run, we will work with your needs, as well as the needs of your family, to make the transition of fostering a dog easy and smooth. We will also work with your time frames and do as much of the leg work as you need us to do. Thank you for your interest in applying to be a foster parent.

Failure to comply with these terms will require that the dog be surrendered immediately and returned immediately to Rocky Mountain Lab Rescue and termination of fostering responsibilities.

I attest all information provided above is true. I promise to care for my foster Lab to the best of my ability. I also agree to keep a buckle collar, ID tag and RMLR tag on the dog, provide quality dog food, adequate shelter, vet care and training as needed (RMLR will provide transportation to vet appointments if needed). I understand that any inaccuracies shall result in my application being suspended or duty as a foster to be terminated.

I understand and agree that RMLR has the right to refuse my application if application or home situation is deemed by the RMLR as not appropriate for a rescued Labrador. You also agree and give permission to RMLR to check with other rescue groups, humane societies, or my veterinarian and/or to share information about my application with said other groups or with my veterinarian.

By submitting this information, you agree to:

1. Not transporting this dog unconfined in an open vehicle.
2. Not leave the dog unattended in any vehicle, as temperatures can escalate to a fatal level within five minutes.
3. Regularly check the tightness of any collar and to remove choke chains or other training collars from the dog when the dog is unattended.
4. Seek assistance from knowledgeable sources, including but not limited to RMLR personnel, veterinarians, behaviorists, or obedience trainers when problems with the dog's behavior arise.
5. Comply with all local, state, and federal ordinances, laws, statutes, and regulations concerning animal ownership or guardianship, including but not limited to licensing requirements.
