Meet Rudy a spectacular 8 year old Labrador Retriever whose owner was evicted and made homeless.
Home At Last Sanctuary (HALS) was contacted to provide assistance. Rudy has been with his man since he was a puppy, He is a wonderful fully socialized Labrador, in other words, the perfect family dog. Surrendering Rudy to a shelter was the right option as this preclude a reunion of man and dog. Rudy is a wonderful dog who would spend little time in any shelter before being adopted.
One HALS more important missions is to keep animals out of shelters. In Rudy’s case HALS is providing a safe, loving, foster home for Rudy for six months to give his owner an opportunity to economically recover. In the event of his not meeting with success Rudy will be available to a new forever home.
Rudy has spent his entire life with his man. Taking Rudy to the shelter was not the right option. Not because there is any risk Rudy would be euthanized. No human on the planet could do that to this spectacular companion. He would be adopted in one day. This option would mean he would never be reunited with his man. HALS works hard to keep animals from being surrendered to a shelter as the only option.
In Rudy's case HALS offered to provide a safe foster home for Rudy for six months to give his man the opportunity to get things together so Rudy can be reunited with his family. After six months, or if his man feels he cannot really provide a place they can live together, Rudy will be available for adoption.
Rudy is looking for a family that can open their hearts and their home until August 4, 2017.
A foster cares a homeless dog as volunteer. The dog live in the home as a family member and day-to-day care is their responsibility. HALS provides for all veterinary needs through one a pre-approved veterinarian.
