LRC Rescue Fund

The Labrador Retriever Club, Inc. maintains a special fund for the emergency care of Labs who are abandoned in multiple numbers, i.e. floods, tornadoes, death of owner, or puppy mill shut down. This fund was established to pay for the immediate care of the animals such as vaccinations, health checks, or short term boarding. It is available to any organized Labrador Rescue Group that is recognized by the National Rescue Coordinator.

Prior to receiving funds, requestors must submit the “Request for Financial Assistance

Funding from the LRC, Inc Rescue Fund will go towards:
• Acute life-threatening conditions – get first priority, then chronic life-threatening (like heart worm for example).
• For persistent puppy millers (“repeat offenders”), if there is evidence that local Animal Control tried to shut them down and failed, LRC will provide financial assistance.

• Females, including pregnant females, shall be altered as soon as medically advisable without regard for potential whelps
• Females with new pups will be spayed as soon as medically viable. Only purebred Labrador Retriever puppies can be sold by the responding Labrador Retriever rescue group, as a means of fund-raising. They MUST be sold with signed spay/neuter agreements in place, and a mechanism in place for follow-up.

Under NO conditions will AKC registration forms be provided for any of the dogs.

The funds from The Labrador Retriever Club must be used for (apparently) purebred Labradors only. No LRC funds will be used for “silver” or “charcoal” coated dogs.
Lab Rescue does not work with aggression. A dog with a bite history will not be accepted into the program.
*Note: Approved rescue groups are groups that have been vetted by the Rescue Task Force of the Labrador Retriever Club, Inc., and are in the Directory on the website. See the Rescue Group Directory.
