Supporting Labrador Charities in 2021

With the year coming to an end, many feel the need to express their charitability and give back. Every year, over 4 million dogs are given to shelters and over 1 million of those dogs are euthanized. Animals have no voice of their own and need allies to speak up and make a difference in their lives. Here are a few ways to give to the labrador community this holiday season.

Finding a Rescue Group

There are members of the Rescue Network all over the nation, especially for labradors. Here is a short list to begin your search: 

  • LabMed, an online nonprofit that distributes financial aid to injured or ill animals to give them a second chance
  • Golden Gate Labrador Retriever Rescue, a nonprofit whose donations go to shelter and medical expenses
  • Central CA Lab Rescue, a volunteer-based organization that places labs with foster families, as they have no central location
  • Midwest Labrador Retriever Rescue, where donations go straight to dogs’ toys, food, treats, and medical care

By doing some research, you can find the best rescue group for your family.

Starting a Rescue Group

A labrador rescue can be a great way to get involved, as the labradors are the most popular dog breed in America. This may be a large undertaking, so make sure you have a community to support your actions. There are many steps to forming a rescue group such as doing research, settings goals, establishing a nonprofit status, and many other stages to the process. 

Labrador National Rescue Fund

There are many registered charities such as the Labrador National Rescue Fund, whose charities go toward labradors. They maintain funds for the emergency-based displacement of labs such as during floods, fires, tornadoes, or other unforeseeable circumstances. The funds from this charity go toward vaccinations, boarding, and other costs.

Other Ways to Help

Animal charities and shelters need your donations and help from the community to continue helping dogs in need. Many shelters do not have the funds or manpower to care for abandoned animals in the best way possible. You may choose to make a donation of supplies to your local charity as well; things such as beds, cleaning supplies, and food are all necessary items to shelters. If you do not have the funds to donate, volunteering your time is another great way to make a difference. Any and all efforts can make a difference in the lives of dogs at shelters.
