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?


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.

Mona Lisa

We were notified by the animal shelter staff about sweet Mona Lisa, who thought her very special indeed, and in need of rescue.

Just looking at her sagging belly, it looks like Mona Lisa has had many litters of puppies, (no doubt she was a wonderful mother to her babies), and was most likely tossed aside after her usefulness was gone.

We think she may be around 11-12 years old, and have found, after blood tests and x-rays, that she has severe arthritis of the spine, a thyroid condition, severe pododermatitis, and kidney disease.† We will do our very best to keep sweet and gentle Mona Lisa comfortable, as she is not a candidate for any surgery due to her declining health, but we sure can use your help ($) towards her continued care.† She needs to be on a low protein diet, which requires special food for her kidney disease, and many medications to keep her comfortable which, as you know, can be quite costly.

Mona Lisa will stay with her foster mom, where she will be loved, pampered, and kept comfortable and warm.

Any donation towards her continued care will be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your generosity.

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.


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.


Moe was left at the shelter at the age of around 11 years old. He is a sweet, gentle boy who has lost most of his teeth and has very bad arthritis, but it is managed through medication and he still loves to go for short walks. He loves kids of all ages and loves walking through the neighborhood and getting hugs from little toddlers and anyone in general. He also loves to go for car rides and basically just wants to be wherever his people are. He is a fixture at his Human sisterís soccer games and thinks he is part of the team as he lays next to the bench during games. He has been in his foster home for over a year now and has been difficult to find an adoptive family due to his advanced age. Please consider sponsoring this sweet boy who wants nothing but love.
