Fosters are what make our organization go, go, go! The more fosters we have, the more pups we can welcome into safe, loving environments before they are ready to be adopted into permanent, forever homes.
The LSAR Foster Program is simple: We supply the pet, just add food, shelter and love! We will take care of all approved veterinary costs (including medications) for your LSAR foster pet. We just ask you treat them like one of your own; give them food/water, a soft, safe place to lay their head, and lots of love.
You do not have to be a dog whisperer to apply! No degree or special training is required. But make no mistake, fosters are indeed very special people! Fosters must be loving, patient, giving and dedicated. If this sounds like you, we'd be delighted to have you on our team!
Please note: A complete (and approved) application, as well as a home visit are required to join the LSAR Foster Program. We are currently "recruiting" fosters within our service area only. Please apply to foster if you currently reside within Texas or Oklahoma.
Stats: 1 year old, female (mini)

This is Pigeon - she's a 1 year old tiny mini. We thought she was 18 lbs., but she actually came in so very skinny at only 12 lbs. We're going to do some investigative work to see if we can figure out what's going on and why her prior owner said she couldn't gain/hold weight. While we always promote an IDEAL weight on dogs, we definitely don't want one struggling to get to an ideal weight.
Pigeon's other known issue is that she was born with a shoulder problem - we were told a vet saw her and said it was likely out of place when born (ouch!) and has basically stayed that way . She gets around fairly well, loves to run and play, but definitely shows it by limping afterwards. We know joints staying out of place set the dogs up for early and severe arthritis, so we want to do whatever we can to fix that and ensure a good quality of long life for this young girl!
Adoption applications for this pet will not be accepted at this time. All incoming Aussies are evaluated for a minimum 3 weeks to allow to them time to decompress and receive any necessary medical care. Applications will be accepted only when the pet's full and complete bio is posted here/facebook. If interested in this pet, please look for updates on our facebook page or bookmark this page in your browser. Thank you!
