MAKE A DIFFERENCE..ADOPT A PET..SAVE A LIFE..FIND A FRIEND
A message from the Founder
"The real quality of life is based on the good and the bad that we contribute, the sincerity and the longevity of each and every task we perform. If we are able to carry each of the above, our happiness is complete. Helping out animals is unconditional, and is deeply dependent on the strength of the GOOD that we have in ourselves. A fake smile is easily accomplished by anyone! The real value is in what is behind that smile! An animal has a serious face, at all times, is focused, dilligent in their behaviour and actions, and almost predictable at all times. They are worth saving, and not all humans are capable of permanently saving a precious life. The ones that contribute, sincerely, are happy and complete individuals. These are the individuals we want as part of our TEAM!!!"
"Fight the Kill Shelter Concept. No Killing of Healthy Animals! Spay and Neuter!" Fortunate Pooches and Lab Rescue is dedicated to saving dogs that are abandoned in shelters and animal control facilities and providing them a second chance to be adopted into loving families. Our staff is composed entirely of volunteers, career-oriented people who extend their duties. We are recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as a qualified non-profit organization. Your donations in support of our work are tax deductible to the full extent of the law. We have no paid employees!!!
FPALR, Inc. is a not-for-profit, 501c3
We help unfortunate Labradors and Lab Mixes find permanent homes through public education, responsibility, and dedication. For adoptions, please click the "How To Adopt Our Dogs" link.
None of our staff take a salary from FPALR, Inc. We are ALL volunteers. All donations go directly for the care of our rescued dogs and puppies. It is up to you whether you would like to contribute to saving a dog. We appreciate your help deeply.
Our dogs are the HEROES and our number one priority! In addition, our adopters are special, because we understand that without you, we would not be able to rescue. We contribute to the community by placing dogs with solid temperaments in special-needs homes, nursing homes, and special families. We went to the next step of opening up an adoption center, which houses our dogs. Due to the fact that humans are unpredictable at times, and these dogs end up in cruel situations, an adoption center was necessary. This enables us, the rescuers, to be truthful, and in charge of the destiny of the dogs we save! And NO, we are not wealthy individuals. Our wealth comes from responsibility, compassion, love, ethics and education. Our fame derives from the ART of the animals we save from death!
Please ask us about our one-on-one dog assistance program. We are excited to offer a free dog assistance consultation with each adoption. There will be a minimum charge for any follow-up after the free consultation, which will benefit our labs.
