Success Stories

Hunter2, December, 2000

Hunter2 This half-starved young yellow male Lab had evidently been a stray for some time before his luck ran out and he was hit by a car. A kind passer-by saw the accident and took the injured Lab to a nearby veterinary clinic, where the dog's leg was put in a temporary cast. When no owners appeared after several days, "Hunter" was transferred to the Animal Welfare League in Chicago Ridge, IL. There he was seen and evaluated by a volunteer with Central Indiana Lab Rescue and Adoption (CILRA) who felt that Hunter would be a good candidate for their rescue program.

When CILRA had Hunter taken to their vet for treatment, the news was not good. Hunter's injury had started to heal on its own, so the calcified tissue needed to be broken down, then stretched and pulled apart in order for the leg to heal properly. This would require the services of an orthopedic surgeon. Even with the veterinary clinic donating many of their services, and with some contributions from CILRA volunteers, more funds were needed so that Hunter could have his leg repaired. LABMED was contacted and we were happy we could help Hunter!
