Urgent Care Required for New Rescues


Meet Blue, a wonderful 2 year old yellow lab mix who caught the attention of one of our volunteers when she picked up Clementine at a local shelter. She noticed how sad and forlorn he looked in his kennel and went back on Christmas Eve to pull him. Unfortunately Blue was not up-to-date on his vaccinations and developed a serious upper respiratory infection while at the shelter. Upon x-raying his lungs it was discovered he has pneumonia. Medical costs for Blue have exceeded $2000 to date. If you would like to make a contribution to Blue’s medical care here is the link for Online Donations.

Though Blue is spending his holidays in the hospital, his prognosis is good and a wonderful foster family is waiting for him to be released. To learn more about Blue please check out his profile on Petfinder: Blue’s Profile

This gorgeous boy is a pure bred male Black Labrador Retriever. His name is Duke. He is a year old and he is very friendly. He was shot in the leg. His owner took him to the emergency vet. However he could not or would not pay to have his dog repaired so he brought him to the shelter on 12/28/2009 and surrendered him. He has a temporary wrap on his leg and is on medication. The emergency vet stated that he will most likely need surgical repair or amputation. Duke's former owner stated that Duke is housetrained and good with children. Duke is a very nice and very beautiful dog.

Atlanta Lab Rescue is working with vets to determine the best corse of treatment to address Duke's injury. It is estimated that his medical care could exceed $5000.  If you would like to make a contribution to Duke's medical care here is the link to make an Online Donation.
