Labs Funded in 2013

January 18, 2014

LABMED funded 42 dogs in 2013 spending a total of $ 14,620.95 for grants for vet care for these dogs. LABMED board members are not paid and we have no overhead so every penny donated goes to the dogs. Please consider making a donation, ANY size helps from $1 and up. You can follow this link to our main web page:

Dogs funded in January, 2011

February 11, 2011

LABMED Funded 3 dogs in January for a total of $650.

Mr. Big, first dog funded in 2011.

Mr Big, Heart worm Treatment
Maggie 2, Heart worm Treatment and FHO
Ginger 7, diagnostic tests (seizures)

We have many more applications in front of us and are just waiting for invoices from vet clinics or procedures to be done before we send checks so we continuously need donations to help fund these applications. Unfortunately, due to the low amount of donations we have received in the past couple of years, we have had to drastically cut back what we can offer each applicant so ANY size donation is really appreciated as it will help us help more dogs.

Total Dogs Funded in 2010

January 11, 2011

In 2010 LABMED funded a total of 55 dogs spending $19,800. Due to the economy we are receiving more applications for higher amounts of money. We were only able to partially fund every application that we approved, usually for less than half of what was requested. Until a couple of years ago we were usually able to fully fund applications that were approved. Please consider donating $11 (see $11 in 2011 post below) to help us with our mission to help Labradors in Need.

46 More Labradors Helped

November 13, 2010

1176 Labs have been helped by LABMED since we were founded. So far this year (as of October 31st) LABMED has funded 46 Labs in need for a total of $16,400 in funding. We have had to cut back the amount that we grant to each dog due to receiving far less donations over the last few years. In order to keep “our doors open” to receiving applications we depend on our supporters for donations or to support our fundraisers. We have no overhead as none of us take any compensation so ALL the money goes to the Labradors needing our help.
Funded in July
Saint — multiple fractures
Carolina — treated for heartworm
Marley3 — leg amputation
Jackson7 — fractured leg
Barnaby2 — bladder stones
Honey7 — treated for heartworm and entropian
Bella Smith — pneumonia
Miss Molly Brown — tumor removal
Bella4 — ACL surgery
Sugar3 — heartworm treatment
Daisy5 — heartworm treatment
Tigger2 — fractured femur
Guy — heartworm treatment
Belly — fractured leg
Tug2 — FHO
Cookie — tumor removal
Cisco — tumor removal

Besides these dogs that we have already helped, we have about 15 applications in front of us right now so you can see why we need YOUR help so we can keep helping the Labs.

Here is a report on a dog that we funded 6 years ago.

Willie swimming

It’s been a long time. I am the owner of Willie2 who was funded back in 2004. She came to me with Parvo and a pellet lodged in her side (already healed so didn’t know). She is almost 7 now. She has gone completely blind from retinal degeneration, has had partial psychomotor seizures for the last few years and about 6 months ago was diagnosed with fanconi’s disorder. It is possible she got that from the pellet metal that she was shot with prior to my meeting her but we don’t know for sure. The pellet was removed and she is progressing on her treatment for fanconi’s. It is possible she’ll recover, also possible she will be on daily supplements as well as phenobarb for the rest of her life.

Regardless, my dog Willie is truly a survivor. She runs on 4 treed acres daily and dives into the pond without fear. She only has trouble if I move something! Every now and then I just feel the need to say thank you again for helping us when we needed it. Dianne Ries

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.
