For the Abandoned Labradors

Gemma - my friend Carol's Senior "Foster Failure"

Lab Rescue LRCP of Maryland, a group that The Book of Barkley has supported for some time, with wonderful volunteers who have become good friends, is having their online holiday auction. They have some amazing items due to their generous supporters. They've raised $22,000 but with the high number of dogs for whom they provide medical care and placement into loving furever homes, more bids are needed (until the 8th).

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)

Check out the many generous donations - travel packages, professional sporting event tickets, gift cards from many restaurants and some beautiful dog-themed art and accessories for your home.

  4. It always makes us happy to hear of all those wonderful peeps in the world.

  5. I don't know if you know, but we foster for LRCP, and just adopted our "hospice foster" Peanut Butter. They really do a lot of wonderful things, and truly make a difference! Did you see that the auction raised just over $54,000? It was a fun auction. I lost out on a few things, but got a few others. People really were generous in what they donated and others in their bidding.
