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.
It's been a great couple of weeks for Lone Star Labs. Several of our dogs have gone to their fur-ever homes. That means that we will not be having a Meet-n-Greet on December 10th.
Instead of a Meet-n-Greet, Santa Claus is coming!! On Saturday, December 17th, we'll have Pictures with Santa at our usual petco location from 1:00 to 4:00
Laelynn will be there to meet all of her facebook friends. Bring your pets to have their pictures taken with Santa Claus!! Proceeds from the pictuers will help Lone Star Lab Rescue take care of our "special needs" fosters like Laelynn and Tex
Recently we heard about an emaciated Lab at the Dallas shelter. She was completely shut down, terrified, would not lift her head and refused to even walk, although she is not injured.
She is covered with scabs from infected flea bites, severe hair loss, green discharge from her eyes, growths on both ears that actually look to be infected fly strikes. She had to be carried out to the car. I have never seen a dog that had given up hope so completely.
We decided to name this precious Lab Laelynn, which means "Flower of Hope."
At the vet, we found that Laelynn is terribly anemic and has a severe skin infection. And of course, she is infected with heartworms. We are not sure if she will need a blood transfusion yet. She does not have mange, which is really good news.
We cannot wait to see the light come back into her eyes & watch her blossom into a beautiful, happy Labrador. With plenty of TLC from her loving foster family, we know that Laelynn will sparkle in no time! We will post pictures of her progress over the next few months.
Laelynn will take a long time to recover from the neglect and malnutrition she has suffered. If you would like to donate to help with her medical care, we would be very grateful. Our adoption fee won't begin to cover Laelynn's needs. We know she is worth every penny!
