Years ago SCLRR started a separate fund for Labs In Need called The Polly Memorial Fund. It is devoted exclusively to funding the medical and surgical care for catastrophic illness or injuries of dogs in our foster care. The fund was started in memory of Polly and is dependent on your donations. Monies donated to the fund are used exclusively to help cover unexpected and extraordinary medical and surgical expenses we incur in treating some of our foster dogs.

Labs In Need Get Help From Polly’s Memorial Fund

The dogs listed below are currently being given care to complete health before being adopted. They are not yet available for adoption, although inquiries are always welcome.

We typically charge $350 to adopt dogs under age seven years, and $150 for those seven years and older. SCLRR’s adoption fees help, but do not fully cover, our costs of spaying or neutering ($95-$175), vaccinations ($35-$50), microchipping ($45), animal shelter fees ($40-$100) and other medical/surgical care. To make up the difference, we rely on donations from our Lab-loving friends. Often times, the care and treatment of some dogs is much more expensive than SCLRR would be able to afford if we had to rely on our adoption and application fees, alone. So your financial support is essential in providing these deserving dogs with a second chance at life with a loving family.

The Polly Memorial Fund is dependent on your contributions. We are a federally recognized non-profit tax exempt group (Tax ID 33-0788621)—any donations you make to us, whether to SCLRR or to SCLRR’s Polly Fund, are entirely tax deductible. Please consider making a donation today!

Donate to the Polly Fund online! Using this particular button means that your donation will be used only for those dogs in our care with special or extensive medical needs.

Please note that Lab Rescue does not pay a bookkeeping firm to record donations. This work is done by SCLRR volunteers so that the monies can go directly toward the care of the Labs. If you choose to contribute by check instead, it usually takes 30 days before your check is deposited. At Christmas/New Year’s Holiday time, it can take up to 45 days for your check to be deposited.
