GGLRR foster homes are often full when we find special Labs who we think deserve a chance. These Labs are in the process of getting into our program (evaluation, vet visit, etc) and having a foster identified gets us one step further in finding a forever home.
Find out more about about fostering with GGLRR and contact the rep listed if you are interested in helping in this key way. These Labs will be added to our Labs Available page when they are ready for adoption.

Foster Found for 3-year-old blind 79 lbs not yet nuetered male black Lab mix "Ray"
Background: Originally found as a stray up in Humboldt County [Who the heck “loses” a blind dog? Give me a break!], we have named him “Ray”. He was driven down to us on Saturday and placed in a foster home in Petaluma but Ray is proving to be a bit too much for the foster so we need to find him a new foster home soonest.
What Ray’s Rescue Rep says: Ray gets along with people and other dogs, but this recent change in scenery has Ray out of sorts. Confused, unsure, and anxious, he is pacing and panting – taking a long while to calm and settle down. Left alone in a crate, he tends to bark and whine. He is not yet house-broken so will need to be well supervised. Would probably do great with another calm/adult dog in the home.
Medical: Besides being blind, Ray appears to be in superb health. Maybe a few pounds overweight. Current on vaccinations, heartworm negative, microchipped. Not yet neutered.
