3rd Coast Labrador Rescue: Emergency Medical Grant Report

How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?

Mack's veterinary care. The growth was hot to the touch and severely infected. In addition to his neuter and vaccines, he also had the growth removed and a much-needed dental cleaning, along with bloodwork, before putting him under anesthesia. He was also treated for severe ear infections and fleas.

Taking in Labradors of all ages can be costly. Without the assistance of donors and groups like The Petfinder Foundation, we would not be able to take in dogs requiring such extensive veterinary care.

Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.

Mack is a 13-year-old Labrador retriever who came to us with Lacey when their owner couldn’t care for them. They hadn’t had veterinary care in years and Mack had a huge growth the size of a softball on his neck. Mack is a handsome older gentleman ready to steal your heart! Mack is part of a bonded pair with Lacey. This big boy only wants to snuggle and lay his head on your lap. Mack knows “sit” and “down,” his age just keeps his response a bit on the slow side. True to being a Lab, Mack loves tennis balls and enjoys playing short games of catch. Mack is a good eater, will go into crates, and is great with cats. He would likely be good with children, but his size and enthusiasm for being close to people would be best for older children not intimated by larger dogs. Mack is housebroken and can hold it for several hours if needed. Really, all these fur kids need are lots snuggles. The few times he has been on a leash, he has been a perfect gentleman and does not pull. Both are adoptable.
