Please Help Us With Jamie #4's Vet Bills
Jamie #4 Jamie #4
Jamie has a truly sad story to tell. She was owned by a person that severely neglected her not only in providing adequate food and shelter but never provided any medical care at all. When Jamie developed a persistent, chronic cough her owner was unwilling to take her to the vet so he surrendered her to us. Jamie was literally on death's door. She was having a difficult time breathing and the coughing was persistent. The vet diagnosed Jamie with Stage 3 heartworm disease, as well as congestive heart failure, a side effect from the heartworms. Jamie was a trooper throughout her whole treatment including removing fluid from her abdomen, and putting her on medications to help her heart and her breathing. Jamie has conquered all, is no longer on any heart medication and now it is time for her to find a forever home where she will be a family member and treasured for the spectacular lab she has become. Jamie is so grateful for all of the efforts our volunteer has put in to help this beautiful lab have a happy life. As you can imagine it was quite expensive between all of the tests, medications and vet visits to get Jamie to the point she is today. She will be forever grateful for any donation you can make to help with her vet bills.

For additional information or to adopt Jamie #4 please email Cindy Bangert at

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.

We receive many questions about our adoption process from potential adopters, most of which can be answered by viewing our Adoption Process Page.
