Luke, May 1999
Two year old Luke had the misfortune of tangling with a car and sustaining an injury to his leg joint as the result. Luke was brought to the Camarillo Shelter in Southern California for care and possible reunion with his owners.
Eventually, members of The Southern California Labrador Retriever Rescue were contacted in hopes of providing assistance for this unfortunate fellow. Luke's diagnosis indicated that surgery and splinting would be required, along with rest and supervised exercise. The cost of Luke's operation was going to be quite high, and so SCLRR contacted LABMED requesting financial assistance with Luke's bill.
LABMED agreed to fund Luke's surgery and we're happy to say he's recovering nicely and has been adopted! We received these updates on Luke since his rescue:
From his rescuers: "Luke, now Shain, was adopted by a retired couple with grandkids for Shain to play with, and a pool for him to swim in. They just love him! He is like their child! This family was a dream come true for Luke."
and from his new owners: "Shain is, without a doubt, the most wonderful and beautiful dog anyone would want. We love him dearly and we are very lucky to have him. He is loving and devoted. His leg
is almost healed. We have taken him to the vet several times, and a few days ago the vet said his leg is quite well and almost totally healed. Again, thank you for all your efforts, and we just want
to let you know it was well worth it." Luke will also be featured in SCLRR's newsletter, which is named "Second Retrieve", which we feel is very appropriate in Luke's particular case!
