Texas shelters kill more dogs than any other state in the U.S. It's a sad statistic, and Lucky Lab Rescue and Adoption is committed to changing that. Our rescue has saved thousands of dogs from animal control facilities and shelters in The Lone Star state. By donating to Lucky Lab and supporting our efforts, you're helping our nonprofit rescue make Texas a better place for animals. Our rescue is foster-based; if you'd like to foster, please head to www.luckylabrescue.com and fill out an application.
Lucky Lab Takes on Tough Medical Cases
Lucky Lab takes on tough medical cases. When our nonprofit rescue sees a dog that's limping, whimpering, bleeding, or suffering in a shelter, we don't look away in horror; we see potential. We know that with an amazing foster, medical care, and love, that discarded dog will blossom into a diamond. Our nonprofit rescue saves injured and sick dogs that would be killed if we didn't intervene. We spend tens of thousands of dollars on veterinary care and thankfully have generous donors who help us pay the bills.
Lucky Lab is All Volunteer
There's no one collecting a big fat paycheck at Lucky Lab. The heads of the rescue, managers, and fosters are volunteers. All our money, time, and efforts go... to the dogs!
Really? Labs Are Killed in Shelters?! Aren't They Like the Most Popular Breed of Dog?
You can't believe how many Labs and Lab mixes end up in shelters and are at risk of being euthanized. Some people have trouble believing this! Sure, they're one of America's favorite breeds, but when people adopt a puppy, and the dog starts to display that “Lab energy," chews up someone's shoes, digs up their yard, or takes up too much time, the dog sometimes gets dumped at a shelter. Some perfectly great dogs end up at the pound because their family moved, had a baby, got divorced, or someone lost their job.
Lucky Lab Saves Dogs of All Ages, Sizes, and Types
The most popular color of Labs are yellow, and chocolate, sadly black Labs and Lab mixes are sometimes overlooked. Lucky Lab doesn't discriminate. We take all shapes, sizes, and colors. We aren't a snooty Lab rescue who will only take purebred dogs; we welcome dog diversity. You never know who got over the fence in some cases, but we don't ask for DNA tests or pedigrees.
Some of the dogs we save have never lived in a home, have never known a soft bed, and have never known love. We've saved dogs who have spent their lives on a chain, in basements, or outside in the cold. But all that changes the day a dog becomes a Lucky Lab!
