Please Help Us With Baxter #17's Vet Bills
Baxter #17 Baxter #17 Baxter #17
Baxter spent the first year of his life living on a chain in someone's backyard. Due to no exercise and neglect, his chain collar grew into his neck. Baxter was dumped at a high kill shelter when his owners finally decided they had no use for him. His chain was so deeply embedded into his neck, the only hope for Baxter was surgery. Despite the intense pain he was in, Baxter wagged his tail at the shelter. Lucky for him, the shelter director called a Labs4Rescue volunteer upon his arrival. We had Baxter sent immediately to the vet for surgery. The Labs4Rescue vet successfully removed the entire collar and Baxter was sent to his foster home for recovery. He is one happy boy who loves absolutely everyone despite the pain and suffering he endured for the first year of his life. Please consider donating to Baxter's medical care so that we can continue to rescue and save dogs who are abused and neglected. Baxter thanks you in advance for your support!

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!
