Just an update about what a great organization Lab Rescue is. We adopted Morgan, a black lab, in March 2004 in Orlando; he had come straight from a week of vet care after being found on the streets with a collar growing into his neck. LRROF estimated he was about 4 years old, making him around 13 today. He has slowed down and turned grey over the years, but he is still an important part of our family and is loved by all for his easy going demeanor. Keep up the great work Lab Rescue!!! John Scanlon
I adopted my beloved Zeus from your organization eight years ago. Zeus was 2 years old when he was surrendered to LRRoF. I was introduced to him shortly after he got to his foster home in Orlando. Zeus and I had eight amazing years together. We saw much of the country together. He passed away on Friday at age 10. Thank you for your organization and for finding labs great homes!
We got our dog, Nala from your wonderful organization back in 2007 when she was a puppy, from a lovely foster volunteer named Miranda. Our son and daughter were just 4 and 7 and were very excited to add a dog to our family!
After losing our Lab a few years ago and then our shephard due to cancer last July we knew we wanted to adopt another dog, this time from the Lab Rescue. We checked the lab rescue website everyday to start our seach for our new family member. We saw Hank on the Lab website. My husband and I both liked him immediately. We checked everyday to see if he was still available. We decided to go to a Vegan Food festival in downtown Tampa one Saturday, just before leaving for NJ because we saw that the Lab Rescue was going to be there with some dogs. We thought we could start looking at the different dogs that were there that day. As fate would have it when we spotted the Lab Rescue booth there was Hank!
I adopted my lab-mix, Sarah 11 years ago, and my mixed breed dog, Maya a few months after that. They were best friends. And then, in May 2012 Maya died suddenly. Her death left us all terribly sad, Sarah included. And when I thought of the best thing I could to to honor Maya's life I thought that giving another dog a happy home was the best way to do that. We knew we would never have another Maya, but we set out to find another dog who we could love just like we loved Maya.
