Carolina, another LABMED success story

October 23, 2010

Carolina was found in June in the middle of a busy road, lethargic, dehydrated and full of fleas. Fortunately she was rescued by the Camp Greendog Foundation. She tested moderately positive for heart worms and her rescuers applied to LABMED for assistance as they didn’t have the funds to treat her.

Carolina has now been adopted and we received this note from one of her rescuers:

“I’ve attached a picture of Carolina with her new parents. She is in a wonderful home in a community on a river with lots of open land and not much traffic. You can see from the picture how happy they are with her.

Thanks again for the role you play in giving wonderful animals a new lease on life!

Please consider helping LABMED with a donation of any size so we can help more Labs in need like Carolina.


And the winner is……

The winner of the 2010 LABMED Quilt Raffle is Alice Hobbs! The winning ticket was drawn 10/22/10 and the quilt is now on its way to Alice. The winner of the runner up prize, a quilted table runner, is Michelle Rothenberger. Thank you to everyone who supported LABMED through purchasing quilt raffle tickets.

We will post photos and information here when the 2011 LABMED quilt is ready. Neither of these winners was present at the drawing having bought tickets either at a previous show where the quilt was displayed or through online ticket sales so be sure to purchase a ticket next year for your chance to win a beautiful Labrador themed quilt.

LABMED is holding a ONE-DAY ONLY fund-raising event Friday, October
8, at Three Scoops of Vanilla, an on line jewelry store.

LABMED will receive 25% of all sales made through the company on
their behalf. When you order, Erin, the owner, will contact you via
email to give you a ship date. This is when you’ll say you support
LABMED! I know that many of you may have seen some of the jewelry
donated by Three Scoops of Vanilla in a past LABMED auction, and if
you didn’t win it then you can buy it now and still help LABMED with
your purchase. Take a look for yourself
Three Scoops of Vanilla
and place an order this
coming Friday to help LABMED! This is beautiful handmade jewelry and
will make wonderful holiday gifts for you and your friends. We hear
there are exclusive online party bracelet designs that are
super-special, so check them out now, and if you’re partial to the
“Pandora”-style bracelet design, there are some of those, too!

Also, get your 2010 quilt raffle tickets soon! They are on sale
through our web site at
and will also be available at the Mid-Jersey Specialty October 21 &
22. The drawing will be held on the afternoon of the 22nd. Remember,
there will be a “Second Chance” drawing for a beautiful handmade
quilted table runner made from the same fabrics as the quilt, so
you’ll have two chances to win! Time is running out, so order today.
Like many non-profits, we have seen a big drop in donations this
year, so we are counting on proceeds from this raffle to help us help
more dogs.

Our Avon fund raiser has been extended through October 7, so if you
haven’t had a chance to order yet, you still have time. Visit
Avon Fundraiser
and remember to use LABMED1 as the code at checkout. Lots of tempting products await!

And to help out fellow Lab-lovers, the folks at Life is Labs have
asked us to put in a good word for their shelter project. They have
started a Lab rescue in Georgia and want to build a shelter to house
the rescued animals. To do so, they’ve applied for a Pepsi Refresh
Grant. Please go to
Life is Labs
and vote for them daily!

LABMED Quilt Raffle

October 2, 2010

Our annual Quilt Raffle is going on right now. Please visit our web page to purchase tickets and help support LABMED. We have a large number of applications for deserving Labs who need a second chance. However our donations have been down due to the economy and we need this, our largest annual fund-raiser, to be a success so we can help fund these dogs.
The winning ticket will be drawn at the Mid-Jersey Specialty on 10/22 but you do NOT have to be there to win so please support LABMED by buying a ticket (or 12) for this beautiful quilt!
