Lone Star Labrador Retriever Rescue (Lone Star Lab Rescue) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, all volunteer organization dedicated to preventing the needless destruction of purebred Labrador Retrievers in the DFW/Dallas/Fort Worth/North Texas area.
Our Meet-n-Greets will be held at the petco located at the south east corner of Preston and SH-121 in Plano. For a map and directions, please see our Meet-n-Greet information page.
These are dogs that have recently come into the Lone Star Lab Rescue program. They haven't been with us long enough for us to have much information on them. In some cases, they are finishing up their medical treatments. In either case, as we get to know them and have more to tell, we'll post information here. Watch for these dogs to move to the "available" page.
The newest Lone Star Labrador is a very special boy. His name is Tex, rescued from a local shelter. He was brought to the shelter as a stray after being hit by a car. His owners knew he was there, but decided to relinquish ownership of him. They had just adopted him 3 months ago :-(. Thank goodness they DID release ownership. Tex has a badly broken and dislocated hip as a result of the car accident. Even through all of the pain, Tex has a heart as big as the Lone Star State! He is sweet, gentle and loving. Tex will have surgery this week and then go to one of our dedicated foster homes for recovery & rehab. Tex's surgery and rehabilitation are going to cost about $3500 to $4500.
Tex has finished his "formal" physical therapy, and is now continuing to excersise on his own. Here, he's working out in the pool. It took some convincing to get him to jump in at first, but now he just loves it!!
