Rene LaBar, founder of LaBarker Lounge, began her journey fostering dogs in April of 2021. It started during Covid when she and her daughter decided to foster dogs as an attempt to do something good in a dark time. Little did she know that she would foster 27 dogs. This consisted of neglected, abused, severely allergic and medically challenged dogs. She even found one to call her own and her son named him Elmer. He was 2 weeks old when she started fostering him and he has become a big part of this journey. She had witnessed first hand the challenges correlating to owners required to go back to work, and offering the time required for these pandemic dogs who had been so used to their owners being home. There was a realization that they had become accustom to more exercise and attention after they had to go back to work. She also didn't want to leave out the seniors who couldn't keep up with the younger dog's energy; they still needed everyday daycare needs and exercise as well but maybe not at the same level as some of the younger dogs. After the amazing feeling of rehoming these dogs and loving the experience she decided to make this a career. Welcome to LaBarker Lounge!
