Labs Funded

LABMED LogoWelcome 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.

June 23, 2019: LABMED is no longer accepting applications. We are in the process of ceasing operations and will issue more information soon. Thank you for all the support you have shown us over the years.

Donation Bone

LABMED has funded 1350 dogs since our inception in 1996. More applications are always in the works. Like all non-profits, we have to make our dollars stretch as far as possible, and because of this, we cannot always offer full funding; rather, we offer partial funding and encourage applicants to try other sources from a list we maintain. We also encourage applicants to supplement what we can give with their own fundraisers such as yard sales, dog walks, bake sales, car washes, and so on.

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!

Although no longer accepting applications we would like to acknowledge those that helped us in the past by establishing the Memorial Funds below.

Memorial Funds

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:

Buddy Arnold

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.


The Pecos Memorial Fund was established through the generosity of  Georgia Lab Rescue to provide funds for Labs and Lab-mixes who are in need of medical treatment due to abuse or neglect. Pecos, a yellow Lab, did not survive his injuries, but his memory will live on as other dogs are helped through this fund.


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.
