Welcome to LABMED, where helping rescued Labradors in need of medical attention is our mission. Founded in 1996, LABMED is an Internet-based non-profit organization created to distribute financial aid to injured or ill rescues around the country, giving them a second chance at adoption and love from a permanent family. To meet the dogs LABMED has helped, including Buddy, the Lab that started it all, read our Success Stories. If you'd like to help with our rescue efforts, there are many ways you can lend a hand.
Our 2004 Auction Project is now closed!! Please visit our auction project webpages for final high bid values and items donated. We'd like to once again thank our wonderful donors and supporters for their efforts in making this project very successful due to your generosity and support!

Not all LABMED stories are Success Stories in the usual sense of the word. Please read Axel's Story, Wilbur's Story and Hope's Story. Davey's case led to our researching on-line information about poisons, and Colby's story contains information about responsible pet ownership. Even less-than-successful outcomes for one dog can sometimes lead to something good for others.
