Read The Book of Barkley and benefit LABMED at the same time!

February 6, 2015

Read a great book and help LABMED at the same time! From now through February 10th, due to the generosity of the author, all proceeds from the sale of the Book of Barkley will go to LABMED!

LB Johnson’s first novel “The Book of Barkley” was published in July of 2014 and soon made the top 100 in genre at Amazon. She works in law enforcement and lives in Chicago with her husband and a Labrador Retriever rescue named “Abby Normal Johnson”. All Net Proceeds from the book are donated to animal rescue/welfare non profits.
“L.B. Johnson has written a compassionate and heart-warming story – The Book of Barkley – about more than just a dog. Anyone who has ever owned a pet will understand the compelling bond that develops between the pet and its owner. It’s a bond that opens up thoughts and memories and expands the owner’s human perspective of the world and the life that he/she has lived and is living. This is a story about that bond, the relationship that opens up the heart and reveals an understanding, a comprehension of the overall meaning of life. Well done!”

LABMED’s 2013 Quilt Fund Raiser

September 7, 2013


LABMED is pleased to announce that tickets are now being sold (at venues we can attend) and donations are now being accepted (via our web site) for our 2013 Quilt Fund Raiser. Please note that we have TWO beautiful quilts this year, plus additional prizes!


View the quilts here:


Here’s how it works:

DUE TO FEDERAL GAMING REGULATIONS raffle tickets are no longer allowed to be sold over the Internet. LABMED has taken all possible steps to adhere to these regulations and furthermore to meet the criteria set forth by PayPal; therefore, this year’s quilt fundraiser is a donation based project with donations accepted as follows: For every $5 donated your name will be put in for a prize drawing for items including the 2013 LABMED quilt–and special donation deals are available. For example, donate $25 and your name is entered six times; donate $100 and you are entered 25 times.

Go here to make your donation:

Drawing will be held October 13 at the National Specialty. You do not need to be present to win!

Labs Funded in 2012

January 19, 2013

In 2012 LABMED funded 49 dogs for a total of $17,564 in grants. We would love to be able to fund higher amounts to Labs/Lab mixes in need but donations have been down.

LABMED has seen a number of new applications in the last week or two, including one for “Black Bear.” Bear has one of the most terrible injuries we’ve ever seen. You see, his jaw was shattered by a gunshot and the photos of the injury are truly horrifying. We received this update on Black Bear this week:

Black Bear is a fighter. He made it through the extensive surgery performed at AETC of Grayslake and is resting as comfortably as he can be after going through such a trauma and surgery. [He] is on heavy duty pain medication that is keeping him sedated. Black Bear is breathing well and they will start him on a feeding tube sometime tonight. The gun shot inflicted a lot of trauma to the tissue and bone of his lower jaw and the damage is pretty extensive. There was exposed bone and that is a concern for infection. They have him on a powerful, broad spectrum antibiotic to help keep infection under control……The left side of his lower jaw is no longer there, it was blown off by the bullet. The surgeon removed the remaining pieces and fragments of the bone, essentially sawing down the middle of his jaw, removing and cleaning up the bone along with the badly damaged tissue.


Black Bear’s injuries were not just extensive on the orthopedic side, but there are other issues going on as well. Black Bear’s tongue was lacerated and repaired during the surgery. Both of the ducts that were under his tongue for the salivary glands were blown off as well. The surgeon had to open up new ducts. [He] is going to be pretty swollen and painful for a while.
This is going to be a steep hill to climb but barring any major infection, he has a good prognosis to lead a long healthy life.

Please consider a donation to LABMED today to help us help Black Bear and other dogs like him. While we don’t earmark funds for any particular dog, you can be sure that your donation will always help one of the many dogs we fund each year.
