Foster needed for a great boy! 3 year old yellow Lab Milo needs your help!

Milo is in desperate need of a foster. He is undergoing heartworm treatment, so needs a calm home with someone home most of the day. Milo is good with other dogs but not good with cats. Ideally his foster home will have an older dog (although at the moment he really can’t play, but he would enjoy the canine company) and no cats or other small animals.

If you can foster this beautiful, wonderful boy, contact Rescue Rep Debbi at or Rescue Rep Liz at 415-613-6374.

Senior/Special Needs Fund

We are inaugurating a new fund designed to help with the expenses associated with rescuing senior, special needs and dogs that have chronic illness. Increasingly, we are seeing senior dogs and those that have chronic conditions that have gone untreated, being surrendered, dumped at shelters, or abandoned. Due to the shortage of space, most shelters will not put dogs with even minimal health issues up for adoption. The cost of treating these dogs is prohibitive on their limited budgets and they are not able to re-coup their costs through the adoption fees.

Lab Rescue wants to be able to save more of these dogs, to get them the treatment they need and adopt them out to new homes where they will be loved and receive the care they need to remain happy and healthy. These dogs may have diabetes, Addison's disease, epilepsy or other chronic conditions, including severe allergies, that can be managed with regular vet care and (often inexpensive) medications.

We hope you will be inspired by the stories of the wonderful Labs we have been able to save and adopt to their forever families with your generous help.

To donate, please follow the instructions on the Donation page and designate "Senior / Special Needs Fund"
