    DefaultLab rescues

    I am new to this forum.

    Long story short. We rescued our Yellow Lab and she was the most fantastic, most human, etc. - You know what I mean. We lost her three years ago after battling cancer and to this day we cannot get over it. I can still cry at the drop of a hat.

    We are thinking about rescuing another, but there do not seem to be any rescues in the mid-Michigan area. I am even willing to drive to another (close) state. Nothing is too good for a Lab that needs a home.

    Any suggestions.

    Thanks

    I found this link: Purebreed Lab Rescue, Inc. And this one: Central Michigan Labrador Rescue Network, Inc. And another: — Michigan Lab Rescue — ADOPTIONS —*RescueMe.Org

    Another: http://www.angelfire.com/mi/michiganlabrescue/index.htm South Eastern Michigan Labrador Rescue another:
    Labrador Links West Michigan Chocolate Lab Rescue

    Good luck! I hope some of these links help you. We lost our 12 yr old last May. I still cry over her. We got Sophie in June and she has sure helped us through our grief.

    If you are near any of the boarders you can look at rescues in those states (or even Canada) as well. Try pet finder - always a good source: Pet adoption: Want a dog or cat? Adopt a pet on Petfinder

    Also, look at all breed rescues, they get labs often as well - don't limit your search to just "lab specific" rescues (not saying NOT to look for those as well! just to expand your search)

    Thank you for the response. I have been in touch with most of these. One no longer accepts dogs, a couple are very difficult to obtain any information from and etc. I guess we were very spoiled by our "Molly". We are really looking for a pure Lab, preferably female, English type , 9 months to 1 1/2 years.

    We also have a cat that "we live with". It is actually my daughters cat that came to stay with us for a weekend--- five years ago. I am sure that he will have an issue with anything that we get but I believe that most labs will get along with anything.

    We have even gone to breeders- just to look and we have just not found that "connection". We will keep searching and hopefully make the connection. However, my wife hates being dragged on my quest.

    keep in mind that it's great to have a specific idea of what you want (I did) but that means it may take longer. ANd very seldomly can they say a dog is purebred unless the papers came with the dog (and they never do!). I got my chocolate lab from Central Michigan Lab Rescue but they seem to have stopped taking in dogs.
