She said fosters play a key role in getting these puppies ready for their forever home.

"A lot of our fosters are really hands on," Foucher said. "They will work on potty training them, they'll let them interact and socialize with the children. These puppies are growing up in a home environment. We can see and learn from the fosters what they're like, what kind of personalities do they have, and that is valuable information when we're talking to potential adopters."

Foucher said when fosters take these puppies home they free up a kennel for another dog that may be at risk of being euthanized in another parish.
