BENEFITING: LABRADOR RETRIEVER RESCUE OF FLORIDA INC
This page should be called Cooper Cures Cancer!
Cooper here, and while I may or may not have found a cure for cancer (effectiveness of eatting the perferct ratio of bark to poop still being dertermined) I am raising money for Lab Rescue! Can I get a WOOF WOOF!?!
Being a former homeless pup myself I know the importance of the basic neccessities. Scrounging around looking for something eatible and some drinkable water can keep a dog on the streets busy all day. Not to mention what happens when they need medical care. In case you missed that one...Nothing. Nothing happens. They stay sick or broken or die. [SQUIRELL!]
When I was hit by a car or kicked by a giant (can't remeber the specifics too clearly) my leg was broken in two places. Spiral fractures of both the left rear tibia and fibula to be exact. When the Humaine Society found me I was gett'n around on three legs. My broken one was bent up close to my body. (see before photos) Seeing that I needed specialized medical attention asap, the good folks at the Humaine Society called Lab Rescue. [OMG I NEED A TREAT!] This is where my whole life turned around. Lab Rescue took me to a specialist who said the break was at least three weeks old. He put a titanium plate and a whole bunch of nuts and bolts in my leg. (see after photos) That straightened it right out! Now it's better than ever! Can't go through a metal detector anymore though. [My Dad thinks that's hillarious.]
Anywho, help me help other dogs in need. Scratch my belly today and save a life. No wait, that's not right. Donate today and save a life!
I've included some glamour shots, on the left, for your enjoyment.
*Lab Rescue is a nonprofit organization comprised of hardworking volunteers and vets that are committed to placing homeless labs with new families. We have been working together since 2000 and have rescued over 5000 dogs. LRRoF, Inc. provides foster care (think DCF...Department of Canine & Families), veterinary care including repairing corneas, replacing knees and hips (think bionic dog), spaying/neutering, microchips and so much more! Their goal is to place our Labradors with loving families in safe, permanent homes. Prior to an adoption, they consider the history, temperament, personality, and energy level of the rescued Labrador. The placement process includes a written application and a home visit of the potential adopter. This ain't no joke, yo. LRRoF, Inc. is committed to making a lifelong match for of all our adopted Labradors.
