Welcome to LABMED, where helping rescued Labradors in need of medical attention is our mission. Founded in 1996, LABMED is an Internet-based non-profit organization created to distribute financial aid to injured or ill rescues around the country, giving them a second chance at adoption and love from a permanent family. To meet the dogs LABMED has helped, including Buddy, the Lab that started it all, read our Success Stories. If you'd like to help with our rescue efforts, there are many ways you can lend a hand.
June 7, 2016: Good news! LABMED has completed its reorganization process and we can once again take donations. We are, unfortunately, not yet ready to accept new applications for funding because our treasury is nearly depleted. Because of this situation, fund-raising is our first priority. Being able to accept donations again will help, but we must do more in order to build up our funds to the level we need to maintain to make funding applications a possibility again. Fund-raising efforts will start with our 2016 Quilt Donation Drive, and we'll have more details on that soon. In the meantime, it's good to be back!

2013 - LABMED was thrilled to announce that we have been awarded a $2500 grant by the ASPCA to continue our mission of funding medical treatment for ill and/or injured Labradors and Lab-mixes in rescue situations. We are extremely grateful to the ASPCA for considering us worthy of this award and we pledge to use it to fund as many dogs as we can. We have already used these funds to provide for several of our most recent cases for procedures ranging from surgery to heartworm treatments. Coming at a time when all non-profits are struggling to raise finds, this grant has been a blessing. On behalf of the dogs we have helped and will continue to help, thank you, ASPCA!New!

Due to the generosity of several special Lab-lovers, LABMED is thrilled to offer these memorial funds. We invite you to read more about these special donors and dogs memorialized by these funds by clicking on the links below:
The Buddy Arnold Memorial Fund was established through a very special gift from Jack and Anne Arnold in memory of their beloved chocolate Lab, Buddy to provide funding for the medical care of the first Lab or Lab-mix each month.
Max's Fund was established by several individuals who were profoundly touched in a lasting way by a wonderful Labrador Retriever named Max. Each month, this fund will help a Lab or Lab-mix and memorialize Max's infinite capacity for unconditional love.
