Coal, September 2001
Lowcountry Lab Rescue was contacted by one of the branches of their local SPCA about a black female Labrador that needed assistance for various medical ailments. Coal, the Labrador, had been dumped at the shelter by her previous owner, pregnant and with a severe respiratory infection. The puppies were born at the shelter, but did not survive because Coal was too sick to nurse them. Because Coal had such a great personality, one of the SPCA Board members agreed to foster her until she was healthy again. While in foster care, it was discovered that Coal had a painful eye condition called entropion and was positive for heartworms. Lab Rescue contacted LABMED for financial assistance with Coal's medical treatments. With LABMED's help, Coal was soon on her way to a new, loving home.
Coal's new owners are very happy to have her with them. They write, ".we are quite pleased with Coal, and she seems to be making herself at home and settling right in. We are very grateful to you for helping us to find her, and to (her foster parents) for taking such good care of her while bringing her back to good health." . "I think the thing that may stand out the most in Coal's story is that she is a very good dog as well as a fine example of her breed, and yet she could just as easily be dead now as living with us if someone had not been willing to put the time into caring for medical problems that were just difficult enough to have made it easy to justify putting her down. We applaud not only your compassion, (Lowcountry Lab Rescue), but that of (her foster parents) and of all the people who make up Lab Rescue, LABMED, and ASPCA. Thank you for helping us to find our forever companion, Coal."
Thank you LABMED!
