Not to hurt our humble brethren is our first duty to them, but to stop there is not enough. We have a higher mission - to be of service to them wherever they require it.
-Saint Francis of Assisi
Almost every day we hear from an overcrowded shelter needing us to take a Lab before its euthanized or from someone who needs to surrender their Lab. The money we raise through donations goes to help the Labs we save. We are an all-volunteer organization, pay no rent, own no vehicles and all of us work out of our homes and donate our time and love. But saving and caring for rescued Labs requires substantial monetary support.
Revenue from our modest adoption fees does not cover the cost to prepare our Rescued Labs for adoption. Our high standards for care set us apart. Our donors make it possible for us to help Rescued Labs who have a good temperament, but also a medical condition with a good prognosis that others may be unable to accept.
Most of the funds we raise and the donations we receive go for vet bills. Every Rescued Lab gets an intake exam, basic shots, is spayed/neutered, microchipped and heartworm tested. Many need extra care for ear infections, allergies, upper respiratory infections and the like. Others require diagnostics similar to those for people and need surgeries for tumors, orthopedic and dental issues, or internal issues. Still others are heartworm positive and require costly treatment.
We are committed to assuring a good quality of life our rescued seniors Labs. They often need medication for pain management, extensive dental care, and may have had other health needs neglected for years.
Fortunately, Safe Harbor Lab Rescue receives discounted rates from exceptional vet partners, which ensures that we can help as many Labs as possible with the funds we raise.
