Lifeboat Labs

This page is dedicated to Labrador Retrievers in need of a "Lifeboat." The dogs pictured here need your donations for help with surgery, medications or other medical ailments. Labrador Rescuers is a grass roots organization run by dedicated and caring volunteers. We count on generous people like you to send a Lifeboat to these wonderful companions of ours who just need a second chance at life. Won't you help us send a Lifeboat to one of the dogs pictured on this page?


Norman was rescued on March 2, 2016. He was seen on March 7th for severe ear infections. The vet and foster thought that he may have congestive heart failure and possibly an enlarged heart due to his labored breathing. However he had kennel cough at the time so blood work and x-rays were approved for his two week ear re-check once the kennel cough meds were finished.

On March 21st x-rays revealed a "decent size" tumor on his lungs and fluid on his lungs which is likely deviating his wind pipe. He also likely has some degree of laryngeal paralysis.

The vet is recommending meds to possibly shrink the tumor and help with his breathing. Due to his generally poor overall condition, surgery is not recommended. Sadly, Norman will likely not be with us for long. He will, however, have a wonderful foster family to love and care for him for the rest of his life.


Guinness was on the euthanasia list in January 2015 when he was rescued out of an Orange County shelter. When Guinness came to Labrador Rescuers we discovered he had some nerve damage in his lower spinal area that caused incontinence and an inability to wag his tail. A few months later Guinness underwent surgery to alleviate the pressure on several nerves in his spine. The surgery helped and after four months, Guinness could wag his tail like a normal dog and his incontinence improved slightly. Guinness has Spondylosis of the spine and arthritis.

Guinness is very mellow, easy going and gets along with all dogs and cats. Guinness enjoys short walks, being with his foster parents, going for car rides and fetching any of his toys for a brief period. Guinness takes Proin twice a day for his incontinence and Vetprofin as needed for arthritis. When Guinness sleeps, he wears a belly band to assist with any incontinent issues. Guinness has been living with his foster family for over a year and will remain in their care where he is cherished and loved.

Princess Daisy

10 year old, Princess Daisy, is one sweet yellow girl, who was turned in to us due to her owner moving, and being unable to care for her any longer. Hours after we rescued her, we very sadly found out that Princess has anal gland adenocarcinoma, a cancerous tumor, and the cancer has spread to her lymph nodes. Yes, it is a very sad outcome, that's for sure, but the good news is, Princess will be very well cared for in the loving home of one of our super fabulous volunteers. She will want for nothing, and the rest of her life will be full of surprises, good food, and lots and lots of love.

We've got you, Princess Daisy.

You're not alone.


This is Rolo. Isn't he just adorable? Rolo was rescued from the shelter at the age of 12 in 2013. He is a loving boy who loves to play ball (for short periods of time). Rolo is being cared for by a foster family who will make sure that he has all of the love he needs in his senior years.

Bear II

Bear II joined Labrador Rescuers in October 2014 when he was approximately 12 years old. His owner lost their home and Bear II had nowhere to go. He has been living in a foster home for the past year and will remain with his foster family for the rest of his life.


Vernon was rescued from San Bernardino in August. He had fly strike and a lump on his side, but was such a sweet boy that we could not leave him there. After a visit with the vet and better look at the lump we found out that Vernon has cancer. Due to the advanced stage, Vernon is not a candidate for surgery.

***May 29, 2014: Update on Vernon***

Vernon has been accepted to participate in a trial for a treatment for his cancer at CVS. As an update, Vernon is doing very well. His tumor has not grown but the effects of the Chemo pills that heís been on for 9 months could start to cause problems to other organs if continued much longer. He is doing very well.

***May 15, 2015 Update***

Vernon was able to have surgery and is recovering well. Visit Vernon's page to read the update and see photos of Vernon.


Moe was left at the shelter at the age of around 11 years old. He is a sweet, gentle boy who has lost most of his teeth and has very bad arthritis, but it is managed through medication and he still loves to go for short walks. He loves kids of all ages and loves walking through the neighborhood and getting hugs from little toddlers and anyone in general. He also loves to go for car rides and basically just wants to be wherever his people are. He is a fixture at his Human sisterís soccer games and thinks he is part of the team as he lays next to the bench during games. He has been in his foster home for over a year now and has been difficult to find an adoptive family due to his advanced age. Please consider sponsoring this sweet boy who wants nothing but love.
