URGENT! Help DFW Lab Rescue Assist with the Fort Worth Animal Shelter Crisis!

The Fort Worth Animal Shelter is in a crisis with over 600 animals picked up just last week and taken to their facility which only holds 400. As a result, they are days away from possibly the largest mass euthanization in its history if animals are not adopted. The urgency of this situation has made news across the Metroplex.

DFW Lab Rescue is ready to respond and save as many pure bred Labradors as our money and resources allow. For every $300 raised, one pure bred Lab will be saved from imminent euthanasia. Volunteers are currently being deployed to the shelter to identify pure bred Labs and we will post pictures of Labs in need soon.

We must raise money and pull the dogs THIS WEEK. Please consider making a donation to help in this desperate situation. Be sure and earmark your donation for the 'Fort Worth Animal Crisis' in the comments section. Foster homes are also needed to help support the influx of Labs in the program. For consideration, please fill out our foster application.

Available dogs (prior to this crisis):

I have two labs from DFW Lab Rescue, and I think very highly of this organization.

Here is a recent special needs dog story:

Source Dallas / Fort Worth Labrador Retriever Rescue Club

Zenith was pulled from a local shelter with what was thought to be a sinus infection. However once he got to the vet and was examined, they discovered a hole the size of a quarter in the roof of his mouth. That meant pieces of everything he was ingesting was ending up in his nasal cavity.

The hole was stitched shut and Zenith was put on an antibiotic to clear the infection. However with the hole being in such a delicate area, it just wouldn't stay closed. The hole was re-stitched multiple times over several months, gradually getting smaller and smaller but not quite staying shut. Because he continued to have a hole in the roof of his mouth, he continued to have a sinus infection and was on multiple rounds of antibiotics.

Once the hole was down to the size of a pin point, the vet felt confident that it would stay closed and was small enough to keep foreign objects from entering the nasal passage. But Zenith continued to have a sinus infection. Something just wasn't right. Zenith was sent to a specialty vet to help determine the cause of his chronic nasal infection. A scan was done and tiny metal fragments- believed to be bullet fragments- were found in his nasal cavity, along with a foreign object the size of a quarter.

Unfortunately the foreign object was large enough it couldn't be extracted through his nostril. So Zenith had to have a full rhinotomy done (he was cut open from between the eyes all the way down to the bottom of his snout). The procedure was successful and the foreign object and bullet fragments were removed.

Zenith recovered from the invasive surgery beautifully. In fact his hair is already grown back and his scar is nearly invisible. But he wasn't quite done yet! He also had several broken teeth that needed to be pulled; but the rhinotomy was intense enough that he had to have this done as a separate procedure.

Zenith is fully recovered and is able to eat dry food for the first time since he's been in foster care. Whether Zenith's hole in his mouth and broken teeth are a result of a bullet, we'll never quite know. But he is one resilient dog with tons of love and affection to give his human friends.

Now a Success story, and up for adoption:

Zenith is best described as a teddy bear - his chocolatey-brown coat is smooth as velvet and he wants nothing more than to have your affection and attention. He is strikingly handsome and weighs about 70 lbs. We don't know about Zenith's past, but it appears his previous owner spent a lot of time training him. He is calm in nature, knows sit, stays to the left side of you when on leash, and often waits for you to go through a door before he does. Zenith is crate trained but is trustworthy left in a single room in the house with a dog bed and some toys during the work day. He also gets free roam of the living room at night to sleep.

Zenith does very well on the leash but may pull if he sees a furry animal. He also makes an excellent running partner. The one area he could work on, is his mouthy-ness. He is not gentle when taking food/treats and sometimes give you a little love nibble when you are petting him.

Zenith's favorite things are: eating, going for walks or runs, joyrides in the car with the window down, laying on top of you while you're on the couch, kongs filled with peanut butter and being loved on.

Zenith needs to be an only dog and is not cat/small animal friendly. He would do best with kids ages 10 years and older.

One more story to open your wallet.

Meet Trooper. As you may have noticed he's missing a leg. However, he has no idea. No one's told him a thing. All he knows it that he was either thrown from a truck, and/or hit by a car. He spent almost 2 months at the vet, and has blended into our household well.

Medically speaking, his only long-term issue is that he cannot get fat. The extra weight would not be good for his joints. The bad thing about that is, Trooper is a foodie. Oh he loves to eat! Slowly, he's learned that walking up to the dinner table and helping himself doesn't work for us. (Keep reading.... mind of his own.)

He will sleep in his crate at night, after whining for a few minutes. On his 5th night here he managed to jiggle open the door. We woke up to find him sleeping in the dog bed. He likes to be by your side. He's a good boy and trustworthy in the house.

Trooper is very affectionate, loves to go on walks, and sit in the sunshine smiling. He follows us everywhere, he must know what everyone is doing at all times, and snores in his sleep. He's a tall guy and can have a mind of his own (usually food related).

What's so amazing about Trooper is not that he can walk, run or even counter surf, it's that he's so affectionate. He just wants to lay on top of you and roll in your arms. He loves his stump scratched... Well why wouldn't I?! Regardless, if you want a love nugget? Meet Trooper.

Please help if you can. I know it is hard with Memorial Day coming up, as there are a lot of good charities to help our troops as well.

I remember this, "Operation Hard Knocks". Some real sad stories, but the rescue group help saved a lot of dogs that day.

Made a small donation and would encourage others to do the same. It's a worthy cause.

Don't need large donors, but if everyone pitches in just a bit, it could make a significant difference.

Sorry to hear that. I recall meeting a British tourist and we got to talking about pets. My local SPCA put to sleep two thousand animals last year and the Brit couldn't believe it and argued that California "saves all the animals". I said he'd heard wrong. I saw the report in my local newspaper, and I've seen the SPCA (as well as rescued a cat from there.(said previous owner deceased) Also adopted female strays and heftily paid the SPCA fee to have them >spayed<). The state, corrections, education, jail unions and their pensions and public employment comp and benefits in CA and probably the EPA, get a lot more in public funding than the SPCA's by county here.
