I got this email from a co-worker today.
Can everyone help get the word out on these dogs. This guy is a friend of my cousin in St. Louis.
2 Black Labs need home ASAP
The owner of these 2 beautiful labs has terminal cancer and can't
care for them anymore. He is heartbroken and hopes to find a family
for them while he is still able. These boys are 4 years old and have
been raised together and he would like very much to find a home who
can take them both so they can stay together.
Details: Two beautiful 4 year old purebred male Black Labs, Hunter and
Fame, both neutered. They are truly wonderful dogs. The owner's
grandchildren can crawl all over them and like a typical lab; they just
lay there and love it. Both are up to date on their shots, housebroken
and very well behaved. He would love to keep these two boys together if
possible as they were raised together and are the best of friends
The email above is all the detail I have. I have the guy's phone # and here is a picture of the pups:
They look pretty well taken care of.
Please cross-post at will.
Obviously the ideal situation would be to find them a family, but if anyone even knows of a rescue in St. Louis or the surrounding areas, that would probably be a pretty big help. I did a google search and it didn't turn anything up. I wondered if any of our dedicated rescue folks would have a better idea.
If anyone would like the phone #, PM me and I can provide it. As I'm sure most of you know, things do not tend to end well for middle-aged labs in pounds, so any help here would be great.
I'm pretty sure that these two have found homes already.
And there's not really a lab rescue here. There's one in KC, MO, but not in Saint Louis. This is your best bet: http://ssllrc.com/index.html
I checked out the SSLLRC this morning. I told the person I got the email from to check with them about rescue stuff as well. Unfortunately it didn't look like their 'rescue' section was up and running yet.
I'll have to double check tomorrow to see if the boys have been re-homed. Meanwhile, I'm still open to any additional input, just in case.
Maybe ask/pm Dani- she has a pretty good knowledge of all the rescues.
These guys are being emailed in all of the rescue circles. They were originally in SC. They are rescued. This email has circulated for over a month now and the location has changed 5 times over. The story is the same, the dogs pictures are the same and the names are the same. Since they've been rescued, the location has changed...so I think someone is having a little fun with the rescue community.

My fault then.
Don't apologize- it's much better that you're trying to help!
