Please Help Brody
Brody  Brody
This is 10 month old Brody who weighs in at 50 lbs. of sweet chocolate. Brody doesn't know he has a medical issue but he does, we just don't know what it is yet. Brody was surrendered by a young single mom who was in over her head with children and pets and had no time for him. We were asked to take him into rescue without full disclosure of his medical issues by a newly formed rescue group in upstate NY. Surely they had seen that something was not quite right! You can tell the moment that you watch him walk that his gait is not stable and not right. He was picked up on Saturday and has already been seen by our orthopedic vet, the next step is an MRI to get to the root of the problem. MRI's are very expensive and Brody will need some financial help with medical bills and a foster that is willing to take him on.

October 15, 2014 Update: The result of Brody's MRI showed a bony abnormality at the base of the skull placing a little pressure on the cerebellum which is causing the abnormality in his gait. At this time the specialists do not believe any surgery is neecessary and we are to monitor his gait for the next few months. He is a beautiful boy with a dynamic personality. If you can help by fostering, please let us know by emailing Ann Hilchey. Thank you for helping Brody.

Please Help Kennedy
Kennedy  Kennedy
Meet Kennedy, a 3 month old yellow male Labrador retriever. He came to us by his owner who could not afford to provide medical attention. You see, Kennedy came from an owner who adopted him off of Craig's List from a Southern state. They promised that he would come with his base shots of distemper and come to find out he has no vaccinations. Kennedy was diagnosed with parvo and is in quarantine being treated. We have high hopes that Kennedy will make it, as we are doing our part medically, now its up to him. The cost to quarantine a young puppy and treat for Parvo is very expensive. We are hoping that this beautiful boy makes it.

For more information about Kennedy, please email Ann Hilchey.

We Urgently Need Foster Homes
We have a foster program that makes it very easy for you to help us save more labs. Because labs high-kill shelters may only 3-5 days to get adopted, we must pull them from the shelters quickly. Crates and vet expenses are covered by our group. You get to choose the lab you would like to foster and you have first choice in adopting him or her if you just can't bear to see them go! Many fosters though remain fosters because there is a real joy in knowing that you are actively saving lives. Most of our fosters say its a wonderful way to involve the whole family in a worthwhile service project. Please visit our Foster Page for more information.

Adopting a Friend
We receive many questions about our adoption process from potential adopters, most of which can be answered by viewing our Adoption Process Page. To expedite the process, please follow the step-by-step instructions outlined on the Adoption Process Page. Please hurry as your new best friend is waiting for you!
