Please Help Us With Forrest's Vet Bills
Forrest  Forrest  Forrest  Forrest
Forrest was found in a high kill shelter with a gun shot wound to his rear end. Since he was found stray there is no way to find out who did it unfortunately. The bullet went in the rear and out his side. After the poor boy went through all that we found he is heart worm positive. We need donations to help with his vet bills, so please help if you can. Forrest is being treated and we are working to get him ready for his forever home so please watch for him if you are interested!

For additional information about Forrest please email Marla Cox at

Please Help Us With Mar Lee's Vet Bills
Mar Lee  Mar Lee  Mar Lee  Mar Lee
Mar Lee is a beautiful girl who is 2 years old and is a little bit fearful in meeting new people, but she adjusts so quickly to any kindness. MarLee had a very difficult life. She had been hit by someone or something which caused her rear hip to dislocate. It was very painful but she lived this way for over a year. Mar Lee was found stray so we don't have background information. She was not yet spayed and she was also heartworm positive. Mar Lee has had a surgery to try and correct her hip. She is now weight bearing on her injured leg and will hopefully be fully recovered in 6 weeks. We still have to treat her for heartworms. Her expenses have been extremely high, but she is such a sweet and loving girl that there is no question that she will bring someone a lifetime of love and devotion. Mar Lee is one of the most tender, gentle and loving dogs I have ever met. Please consider helping with some of her expenses.

For additional information about Mar Lee please email Jennifer Wright 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!
