National Adopt A Shelter Dog Month - Lab Rescue of L.R.C.P., Inc.

My human and I have been photographing and blogging for a few of the rescue organizations in the Washington D.C. area over the past few years.  I love to write about friends who are looking for their "Forever Homes."

I'd like to introduce you to the Lab Rescue of L.R.C.P., Inc., an Annandale, Virginia breed-specific rescue organization. What is breed specific?  It means they are similar to other rescue groups and shelters but we specialize in Labradors.

The Lab Rescue of L.R.C.P, Inc., rescues, fosters, and places homeless, abused, and/or abandoned Labrador Retrievers including Golden Retriever-Labrador Retriever mixes and provides a referral service for owners seeking to place their Labradors in new homes.

The Labs' temperament is evaluated and then placed with foster families where they are loved, exercised, and further evaluated while waiting for adoption to their "Forever Home."  The dogs are brought up to date on shots, given a heartworm test and, if possible, are spayed or neutered. Lab Rescue of the L.R.C.P., Inc. places over 850 Labradors each year.  WOOF!!! Barkingly pawsome!!

If you are not able to adopt, there are other ways to help the dogs such as volunteering.  Also, as a non-profit organization, you can donate financially or with goods they can use to care for the dogs and receive a tax deduction.
