All of us at Atlanta Lab Rescue want to wish our friends and supporters, fosters and volunteers a Happy New Year!  We hope 2010 finds you in good spirits and optimistic for the coming year.  Our inaugural issue of  The Real Labs of Atlanta Calendar was and continues to be a great hit.  Sales are strong and as a fundraiser, we've managed to satisfy some of our outstanding veterinarian costs. But, it wouldn't have been successful without the many supporters, contributors and consumers who helped by promoting, disstributing and purchasing calendars throughout Atlanta and surrounding communities.  The dogs would like to give everyone a well deserved scratch behind the ears and a tummy rub.  You Rock!

Although we are an all volunteer organization, we do have overhead;  which consists mostly of medical care and treatment of our rescues, including spaying/neutering, vaccinations, heart worm treatment and urgent care needs when we bring in animals.   As the dogs are on the mend, our costs then turn to fostering, housing and finding forever homes for those in the program.  On average it costs $600 to bring a dog into our program and vet them for adoption.

We are proud to report as of December 31st, 2009 we rescued, cared for and took in more than 325 dogs. This year we hope to raise the bar and save 400. I know together, with your continued support, we can we reach this goal!
