Please Help Us With Reed's Vet Bills
Reed Reed
Reed is such a sweet boy to have gone through the trauma he has endured. Reed is a 9 month old lab whose owner brought him to a vet clinic one night after a freak accident. Reed was playing in the yard and began running at full speed when he tripped on a wire and slammed into the post of a swing set. His owner took him to the vet clinic on a Friday night and was told he would have to have his leg amputated. Reed's owner did not have the funds for the surgery so told the vet to euthanize him. The vet called us and asked if we would take him and we said yes. The vet then made Reed comfortable with pain meds and his surgery took place the next day. The bone was shattered and the leg was removed. Reed has not skipped a beat even after all he has gone through. His tail still wags and he loves attention. Reed is on the mend now and healing. He is not ready for his forever home yet but when he is he will be a wonderful addition to any family. Reed's surgery was costly and I know he would appreciate any help you can give him. Please consider donating to help pay Reed's vet bills.

For additional information or to adopt Reed 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.

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!
