The Dallas Fort Worth Labrador Retriever Rescue Club, Inc. (DFWLR-RC) is dedicated to alleviating the needless death and suffering of home-less or misplaced (lost and stray) purebred Labrador Retrievers in the Dallas Fort Worth area.
By rescuing and rehabilitating homeless Labradors in our community, vigorously promoting responsible dog ownership through active participation in pet-related events, and through our own education program, we strive for a better life for each of our animals.
We have events almost every week all over the DFW area so our labs can find their forever home. Our event calendar always has the most up to date information for local Meet & Greets and special events. Come out today, be a hero to a deserving lab, and find your best friend!
HOW CAN YOU HELP?
Puppies in Need!!
Donations needed: DFWLRR is a 501(c)(3), so all donations are tax deductible.
Sarah, Saxon and Melea are in need of your help. All of these babies are just 9 weeks old. Melea has just had surgery for a broken leg and Sarah and Saxon are in the ICU being treated for Parvovirus (prognosis unknown).
Parvo can be incredibly severe in puppies like Sarah and Saxon and treatment usually involves extensive hospitalization due to severe dehydration and damage to a dog's systems including the intestines and bone marrow. Untreated cases of Parvo have a mortality rate approaching 91%. With treatment, these babies have better chances, but they are still in for a substantial fight and we need your financial support in order to help them. Sarah and Saxon have already been hospitalized for about one week. While one of the parvo pups has recently showed some improvement, one has yet to turn the corner toward recovery.
We expect Melea's surgery, while expensive, to be the resolution to her Special Medical Needs veterinary care.
Please consider a donation today via cash or check mailed to:

Congratulations to our March Foster & Volunteer of the Month!
March Foster of the Month, Nic Edwards!
Congratulations to our March Foster of the Month, Nic Edwards. Nic has taken on an extra special lab for us this month who required a TON of care and love! Now, his foster is moving to another foster to help with surgery. Nic's first response was "Okay, then who's next?" Nic is a truly amazing and loving foster! Thank you so much!
Here's what Nic had to say!
I have been fostering for about a year and a half with DFW Lab Rescue, and just absolutely love it. It is such a great experience helping these amazing dogs discover their new future. I feel completely blessed to be a part of the transformation that they go through and see them become loving members of their new families. The smile that comes over your face as you read an update about one of your fosters is one of the greatest feelings in the world. One of my first fosters was Ebeneezer. I originally was only going to temp foster him over the holiday break, but he was in and out of every vet clinic that was open and could see him, including two trips to the emergency vet. After being by his side through that start, there was no way I was letting him go. The following months included pneumonia treatment, eye retina surgery, and intensive heartworm treatment. Six months later, he was ready to find his new home. I had an intense debate in my mind over whether or not I would ever be able to let him go, but in the end, I knew I wanted to continue to foster and help many more deserving labs. My pet sitter, could not bear to lose him though, and made him a part of her family. It turned out wonderful, and get to see him on a weekly basis and he even gets to spend weekends with me on occasion. The thought that this amazing dog could have been lost had it not been for DFW Lab Rescue is why I do what I can to help. There are many, many more just like him that deserve their chance to find the life that they deserve.
March Volunteer of the Month, Meg Worthy!
Please join me in congratulating Meg Worthy our March Volunteer of the Month. We picked Meg for the awesome job she did organizing the St. Paddy's Day parade as well as all the other things she does throughout the year like the Pet Expo and dancing for the doggies!
Here's what Meg had to say...
I adopted my first lab when I lived in Connecticut, and my second. They both made the trip back to my home town of Dallas seven years ago. Sarah is waiting for me at Rainbow Bridge, and little Coco Puff is still with me, along with my latest adventure, a lab mix named Captain Crunch. I honestly can't imagine doing anything better with my silliness, and enthusiasm than raising awareness for dog rescue, and especially labs. I so appreciate this honor, and know how hard we ALL work for these precious pups. And next year, I'm bringing a BUS to pick us up after that parade!!!
