The Pecos Memorial Fund

The Pecos Memorial Fund is dedicated to helping Labradors who have suffered at the hands of humans yet kept their grace and spirit despite the cruel treatment they received.

This fund was started in memory of Pecos, a yellow Lab who escaped from his yard while his owners were on vacation and somehow found his way home despite the severe injuries he received after he had been doused with lighter fluid and set afire. Although Pecos was transferred to a vet school with the best of facilities, once he was assessed there, it was felt the burns he received were too severe and the most humane thing to do was to euthanize him. 

A $5,000 reward fund was established to help bring the abusers to justice but unfortunately they have not been caught yet. Due to press coverage of this tragic event, donations had started to come in to help with Pecos' treatment and continued to come in even after he was euthanized. Through the generosity of Georgia Labrador Retriever Rescue who decided to donate all of the funds raised for Pecos to LABMED and another non-profit group, we can help keep the memory of Pecos alive by using these funds to help those Labs and Lab-mixes who come to us for assistance when they have suffered injuries or illness due to abuse or neglect.

Pecos is sadly missed by his family but thanks to the generosity of others, his memory will live on through this fund. Please consider making a donation in honor of Pecos so we can help other abused and neglected Labs through this memorial fund. Please let us know that you are making a donation in honor of Pecos so we can add your name to the list of donors below.

Thank You!

Kim Williamson and Georgia Lab Rescue
In loving memory of Pecos
