Fortunate Pooches and Lab Rescue

Fortunate Pooches and Lab Rescue is an all-volunteer, unpaid organization that saves dogs from being euthanized in animal shelters. They provide dogs due to be euthanized a second chance at a happy life with loving families. Their volunteer transporters transport the dogs to their facility where they are spayed/neutered, microchipped, treated for any illnesses, socialized, and then are advertised to be adopted out to qualifying individuals. Fortunate Pooches and Lab Rescue is working to reduce and/or stop the kill shelter concept. They support and dedicate themselves to promoting responsibility, dedication, education, safety, and the spaying/neutering of pets. Visit Website

    Really sick dog

    I adopted a dog in 2012, a yellow lab mix from this shelter. I was told she was tested and was heartworm negative. When they finally sent me the paperwork from the place in Missouri where they got her from, it clearly stated she was heartworm positive and had them in her heart and lungs. By this time I had already had her for awhile and was committed to taking care of her. I reached out to them and they agreed to pay me the cost of what their Vet would charge them for the treatment. It was much less than what my Vet charged, but it was something. Needless to say, after many emails with no response, I was completely frustrated with their organization. All I was asking for is what they had agreed to cover. It took months and months and more months before I saw anything and everyone seemed to pass the buck. Good news, She was treated and although it was extremely rough on her, she came thru like a trooper. She is now happy, healthy and one of the best dogs I have ever owned. Would I adopt from them again? No, I feel they will do anything (including not being upfront with medical info) to get these dogs adopted. Would I have adopted her knowing she was sick? Probably not. It cost me a small fortune to get her well. What they finally paid was nothing compared to what I spent.

    Wonderful, no -kill, dog rescue.

    I have known the owner of Fortunate Pooches for five years. I have volunteered for FPLR & helped to host adoption events with the owner. I know how much she loves the dogs, as she is always broke from spending her own money for vet. bills. She pays the medical bills for rescued dogs that are sick, have been neglected or abused. Dogs that most people would give up on. She has never turned away a sick,old ,or injured dog. The owner & her dedicated volunteers presently foster rescued dogs in their own homes,nurse them back to health & give them unconditional love. They are trying to raise funds to buy their own free- standing shelter. In these difficult economic times, many would consider the welfare of our canine companions a low priority. Fortunate Pooches & Lab Rescue makes such a huge difference for such a small & little -known organization. If you have any extra time, room, or a couple of bucks to spare, please check out the FPLR website. Better yet, if you are ready & have room in your heart to love a dog, please adopt a rescued pooch from them.
