OUR HOPE To leave no adoptable dogs behind
MISSION To provide a safe haven and the care needed for adoptable large breed dogs that would otherwise die in shelters
WHAT KEEPS US GOING There are far too many Labradors and Retrievers, mixed and pure breeds, young and old; and, as we can, other breeds of dogs left behind to die. We will work to give them hope and a chance at Life. We will provide a soft bed, safety, medical care, training, and love to rehabilitate those we can, giving them a new chance at life.
WHAT WE BELIEVE All canine companions deserve a dignified existence regardless of age, health, or past history. Dogs are resilient creatures which, with love, support, and proper nutrition and medical care, can be reintegrated into a home to bond with a forever family.
WHO WE ARE A grassroots network of 500+ volunteers with an overwhelming sense of compassion and love for our canine companions. Through our active network of dedicated volunteers, we are able to make a real difference in the lives of over 1,000 dogs from shelters in San Diego County and across Southern California annually saving over 3,500 dogs in four short years!
WHAT WE DO We partner with trainers, veterinarians, shelters, volunteers, and adoptive families, so we can provide continued support to the dogs that we have rescued and homed. We accomplish this through a variety of fundraising events and regular adoption events both in San Diego and North County.
HOW YOU CAN HELP OUR MISSIONYou can help support this important work in so many ways. If you have money butno time, consider making a tax-deductible donation. If you have time but nomoney, consider volunteering. If you have love to give, consider fostering oradopting one of our dogs. These gentle souls ask for so little, yet deserve so muchmore. We hope you can help us provide that comfort in whatever manner worksbest for you.
Kansas & her 9 Puppies: This sweetheart arrived to Labs and More pregnant and in need of a foster home to help her deliver and care for her pups. Her life threatening tumor prevented her from caring for these pups on her own. We knew that Kansas would need around the clock care and resources to insure her safety and the lives of her puppies. The day she went into labor, we rushed her to the our experienced vet where 9 beautiful pups were delivered by emergency C- section. Even through her condition, Kansas nurtured these pups to be the happy, playful, and social pups that they are today. Your generosity gave these pups life!
Sharpie: This handsome boy is easy-going, affectionate, and loves to hang out with his Foster Family. He is fostered with other dogs and adored by all. Sharpie is great on the leash, house trained, crate trained, sleeps through the night, and listens well. This gentle spirit will always need a little extra LOVE, but has even more to give. Due to a heart conditions Sharpie will be on medication for the rest of his life. Labs & More could NOT say no to such a sweet boy & through our Compassion for Paws program we will be able to reduce the adoption donation for his Forever Family! Please consider giving Sharpie a place in your hear and home
