Gemma - my friend Carol's Senior "Foster Failure"
I can't speak highly enough of this group and The Book of Barkley has supported dozens of rescues thanks to those that have bought my books. Lab Rescue of the LRCP (Labrador Retriever Club of the Potomac) is a volunteer-driven non-profit organization (Non-Profit Tax I.D. 52-1880024) that rescues, provides veterinary care for, fosters, and finds loving new homes for abandoned and neglected Labrador Retriever.
No dog is left behind, I personally know one volunteer that has taken in multiple "forever fosters" for dogs that due to age or health, won't be adopted, giving them a warm and loving home for their final months or days, paying for whatever care is needed to keep them comfortable, so they leave this earth surrounded by nothing but love and attention. (Bless you, Carol)
