Bartlett, October 2001
Recently a phone call was received by MVLRC Inc. LAB RSQ from the Campbell County, KY animal shelter asking if they could help with placement of Labradors in this shelter. One of the Labs was a 10 week old black male Labrador Retriever, who had an injured and malformed right front leg. He was left tied to the outdoor "drop off" cage during one night in October, along with another Lab, to be found by the staff next morning. MVLRC could not fund the extensive orthopedic care that this little Lab needed and could not promise any assistance.
A rescue worker knew this was a very special little pup, though, and could not leave him behind. On hope and a prayer, with no funding, the rescuer went back to the shelter the next day and brought the puppy home to foster and to obtain the necessary medical treatment he so desperately needed. A very kind and generous couple made a substantial donation to assist this little guy - now named Bartlett after his "angels". Because of this heartfelt generosity, a fund was started to raise the money needed to give Bartlett a chance for a normal life.
LABMED was contacted, also, and we were happy to be able to partially fund the medical treatment needed by Bartlett. This friendly and loving puppy will soon have the surgery needed to give him the best chance at an active and healthy life. Meanwhile, Bartlett is enjoying being pampered at his foster home, and has won the hearts of everyone who meets him.
