LABMED Application Form

LABMED IS UNABLE TO FUND DOGS WHO HAVE OWNERS. Please do not submit an application if this dog is your pet.

Please fill out the form below completely; if you are unable to answer a question, please enter "not yet known" or give us an estimate. You must also submit a picture of the dog, either via e-mail to Donna Harrison or snail mail to the address given below. Please visit this page for more information about submitting pictures. Once the application is submitted, you will receive a confirmation that we received your application within 48 hours. The length of time it takes for us to make a decision on funding varies a great deal. If you have any questions or problems submitting this form, please email us.

Any misrepresentation of the facts or provision of false information about the case will result in immediate closure of the application and denial of funding for any future applications.

If you have any questions or problems submitting this form, OR IF YOU DO NOT HEAR FROM US WITHIN 48 HOURS, please email us or call 972-208-2470.

If this is a life or death emergency and you need a response from us within 24 hours, then YOU need to make sure we are provided with the following:

  1. The vet must be available to speak with a LABMED representative.
  2. You must get a picture of the dog to us within 24 hours. You can e-mail a picture to Donna Harrison. If you are not able to e-mail one, but choose instead to send one by overnight mail, the address is
    LABMED, Inc.
    3941 Legacy Drive, Suite 204, #A115
    Plano, TX  75023
  3. In the medical section of the application, please give us as much detail as you can on the nature of the emergency treatment needed and information on what treatment has already been given.

IF THIS IS YOUR PET: DO NOT complete this application form if you are this dog's owner. LABMED is NOT able to consider applications for assistance for established pets (i.e. dogs who have been adopted for longer than two weeks or dogs who are not in a rescue situation). If you have any question about this, please see our Funding Guidelines, number 11 A and B.
