“The work we do is rewarding for us but, more importantly, the dogs…they are provided with a forever family.”
Labs and More Rescue is Southern California’s fastest growing and most active dog rescue. Our volunteers work to rescue over 1,300 dogs each year finding them forever homes in and around San Diego. In just 8 short years our volunteers have worked to give hope to over 8,800 dogs in need of a chance at life. These rescued dogs were often on their last day of life in a shelter, on the streets, or abandoned by their owners. You can help in so many ways!
“My family came to adopt a friend for our boxer and we never expected to leave with a shepherd mix but we fell in love and she couldn’t fit better. Our boxer was so happy & playful for the first time since we lost her old friend. Bebe fit perfectly into the house and is a sweetheart. Thanks to all of you for all the amazing work you do!”
“I love this rescue!”
Bringing together people who believed there should be a brighter future for these loyal companions left to fend for themselves is why Labs and More was founded in 2011. We have had the good fortune of meeting amazing people and wonderful volunteers who have helped us build a network of compassionate and generous people who have helped build Labs and More Rescue. Because of these efforts, we have endeavored to never have to say “no” to dogs in our breed group needing extensive medical care, pregnant moms and moms with pups, senior dogs in need of medical assistance, and adults who otherwise have no chance at life.
Our fosters are a force to be proud of making room in their homes for hundreds of dogs weekly. These fosters have allowed us to provide a safe haven for moms and pups who have been discarded often worse than trash onto the streets, dumped injured along roadsides, and left to find shelter outside to deliver, feed and provide protection to their newborn pups. This year alone, we have saved over 160 litters of puppies and over 600 puppies. Many of these mom’s and pups require urgent medical care to include emergency c–sections to save mom and babies, IV’s and blood tests because of their poor health and condition, and hospitalization for diseases like parvo.
This care takes a toll on our finances, our Fosters and our hearts. We are making a difference in the over-population of dogs in our general area. The local county shelters are now no or low kill as a result of so many puppies getting altered eliminating the risk of breeding. We are here to continue this mission with the support and financial backing of our community. Let’s end the suffering and throw away mentality of dogs and puppies in our society. A grand but real mission.
We scour the local and distant shelters across Southern California where we rescue hundreds of adult and senior dogs monthly. In particular, we are asked by shelters to give an extra helping paw to the medical dogs in their shelters who otherwise have no other hope. Our goal is to say “Yes” when an urgent need for an injured dog is presented to us. We have provided many needed surgeries to include hip and leg surgeries, leg amputations, tumor removals, cancer treatments and other major care that without help would have suffered and then needlessly lost their lives.
Our goal is to encourage YOU to care enough to make a difference by getting involved!
