Lifeboat Labs

This page is dedicated to Labrador Retrievers in need of a "Lifeboat." The dogs pictured here need your donations for help with surgery, medications or other medical ailments. Labrador Rescuers is a grass roots organization run by dedicated and caring volunteers. We count on generous people like you to send a Lifeboat to these wonderful companions of ours who just need a second chance at life. Won't you help us send a Lifeboat to one of the dogs pictured on this page?

Belle

Belle came into LR after having to be separated from her owner because of hardship.

Shortly upon arriving it became apparent she was uncomfortable in her mobility and it was discovered she needed bilateral elbow surgery. She recovered from the surgery and we thought happy day for her she was finally ready for her new forever family; but then another set back presented when it became obvious she was in some other kind of distress and pain.

She was diagnosed with Perianal Fistula; a serious autoimmune disease that causes painful fissures, and chronic urinary tract infections. Despite her condition and everything she has to endure Belle continues to have a very sweet and gentle spirit; always wanting to please.

Due to all the special care Belle needs and the challenges and costs of her medical issues it has been decided she will be a LR Lifeboat Lab staying with her fosters who have learned how to accommodate her needs, keep her as comfortable as possible, and of course give her lots of love.






Sasha

Sasha is a very sweet English style girl. She passed her evaluations, both human and dog to dog with an A+, is easy going and medium energy, has a happy waggy tail and is a wonderful girl. Sasha came into LR with what we hoped was a harmless Mammary mass, unfortunately when we had it removed and analysed it turned out to be a Grade 1 carcinoma with a 50% chance that it will spread. Due to her age and the fact that the cancer could spread, we decided to make Sasha a lifeboat lab, to be cared for by her loving foster Mom and foster family, who totally love this sweet girl.

Please consider a donation to help with Sasha's on going medical needs.




Nani and Dory

Nani and her sister Dory were relinquished to Lab Rescuers on November 23, 2015. Their owners were relocating due to health issues and were no longer able to care for them. As with all Lab Rescue labs they were both taken to on of our vet partners for a full examination. Sadly we found that Nani has a spindle cell mass tumor on her left lower leg. She had radiation treatment in hopes that it would reduce the size, but unfortunately it hasn't shrunk. Nani will continue with palliative treatments to keep her comfortable until the sad day arrives. Since these two sisters are bonded, Dory will remain with Nani in a loving foster home throughout the rest of Nani's life.




Buddy

In December 2016 we took in Buddy from a Inland Valley shelter, at the time he was listed as 14 years old. He was dumped by his owners at the shelter we guess they did not want him anymore. Buddy was placed in one of our fantastic foster homes, and now lives very happily, with 2 other dogs and 4 young kids, everyone in the home totally adores him. At over 14 years Buddy was deemed unadoptable and his foster family was more than willing to keep him with them, he will be loved and adored for the rest of his life.






Guinness

Guinness was on the euthanasia list in January 2015 when he was rescued out of an Orange County shelter. When Guinness came to Labrador Rescuers we discovered he had some nerve damage in his lower spinal area that caused incontinence and an inability to wag his tail. A few months later Guinness underwent surgery to alleviate the pressure on several nerves in his spine. The surgery helped and after four months, Guinness could wag his tail like a normal dog and his incontinence improved slightly. Guinness has Spondylosis of the spine and arthritis.

Guinness is very mellow, easy going and gets along with all dogs and cats. Guinness enjoys short walks, being with his foster parents, going for car rides and fetching any of his toys for a brief period. Guinness takes Proin twice a day for his incontinence and Vetprofin as needed for arthritis. When Guinness sleeps, he wears a belly band to assist with any incontinent issues. Guinness has been living with his foster family for over a year and will remain in their care where he is cherished and loved.
