From Our Editors
The volunteers at Labrador Friends of the South take homeless labradors under their wing, often fostering them in their own homes until they can find loving, adoptive families for them. Battling myths that abandoned dogs have health or behavioral problems, the volunteers carefully screen prospective parents and educate them about each dog's personality and medical history to ensure a good fit. Before the dogs are adopted out, they ensure each one is vaccinated, treated for any major health condition, and spayed or neutered to prevent pet overpopulation. The volunteers ensure each dog receives permanent care; if labs cannot remain in their homes due to unforeseen circumstances, they can return to the program to find another placement for as long as they live.
