At the end of the year, when so many dogs are pleading to come to Lab Rescue and more are on their way in the coming months, we need your help in order to grant the small wishes that they have and welcome them into a chance at a better life.

 

Can you sponsor a Lab by granting its wish?

  • Scroll to learn about the wishes of each Lab Rescue dog.

  • Find one (or two!) that inspires you.

  • Make that dog's intake or care possible by clicking "Grant Wish" and making a gift.

  • You can give in any amount — either the entirety of a wish or in any denomination toward the wish.

  • We'll update you when the dog's wish has been fully granted!

 

Together, we can ensure that no Lab has to be turned away this holiday season!
