Labrador Information & Resources

There is a reason Labrador Retrievers are the most popular dog breed in America.   You probably have met many Labs or previously been loved by one.  Here are some of the many resources available to get to know the Labrador breed better, from different colors to American/field versus English/show body styles.

DogTrekker is a collaborative effort of dog lovers who want to share what they've learned during 200 combined years of on-the-road and on-the-trail adventures.

Having Trouble Affording Vet Expenses?

Dog ownership is a serious commitment of both time and money. Unfortunately, sometimes personal situations change and people feel they can no longer afford their dog. Before giving up your dog to join the many others looking for homes, please check out this information about financial assistance resources posted by the Humane Society at Having Trouble Affording Your Pet and their current list of organizations that can help. The Simple Dollar is another resource with a list of the resources and organizations in each state that are offering financial assistance for pet owners in need: The Simple Dollar’s guide to financial aid for pets.

Here are a few of the organizations that can help:
