Special Needs...Special Dogs...

Special Needs Labs are those Labs that are brought into our program knowing they may have physical or behavioral issues that are greater than our typical vetting and fostering programs can overcome.  These Labs may have a serious illness that will require hospitalization, may need surgery to repair an injury or genetic defect, may need specialized testing and treatment, or may need to spend time with a trainer to overcome behavioral challenges. 

It is through donations to our Special Needs Fund that we are able to offer help to a Lab in Need.  We feel by helping these special Labs we are taking rescue to the next level.

Pixie & Hallie  





Sisters Pixie & Hallie were 4 mo. old and were surrendered to the shelter. They immediately began treatment for Distemper after rescue. Pixie is still fighting and being treated for pneumonia (often a byproduct of the Distemper virus) while sadly Hallie did not survive. Pixie will be available for adoption in late April after she is no longer contagious to other dogs and can move to a foster home.





5 Siblings  


5 Siblings



Rosa, Lilo, Spanky, Stitch, & Tink were 3 mo. old when they were surrendered to the shelter due to a skin condition. They were scheduled to be euthanized when we picked them up. They've been receiving care for a tough case of ringworm since early Feb. Daily medication, frequent baths and isolated from the other animals. They need a foster home that can tend to their special needs while they finish their recovery. This is what rescue means to us but we cannot do it without your help.









Macck is a super sweet boy that was surrendered to the shelter. This poor guy has old wounds from being shot with pellets, a large skin infection on his neck and he wasn't using his back leg. Macck needed and received TPLO (ACL) surgery. He is currently recovering from his surgery and doing great. Macck's treatment and rehab have been expensive and your support will help us continue to help dogs like Macck.
