Rocky Mountain Lab Rescue is just one of 35,000+ groups listed by members at iGive. Here's a little more detail on them, as provided by members or the organization itself:
The Rocky Mountain Lab Rescue (RMLR) consists of a small group of volunteers that find and rehome rural and some local Labrador retrievers and Lab mixes. We find our Labs through shelter volunteers out of state, who will alert us to great dogs that are about to be put to sleep. Most of these labs are in "High Kill Shelters". These are shelters that are almost always full because they are located in rural areas, where the dogs run stray, easily mating because they have not been altered. The general population in many areas of the country are still ignorant to the importance of spaying and neutering their pets. Many people also find that they can not care for their dog anymore and have no one else to turn to, so they take their dog to a shelter. Many of these "High Kill Shelters" give their dogs about 4-5 days to find a home. If they are not adopted they are euthanized or placed in a gas chamber.
We are a small group of volunteers who want to make a difference. We want to help educate the public on the importance of spaying and neutering their pets. Teach the public that it is better to adopt and save a life than to buy from a pet store or an unprofessional breeder. These animals are so loving, forgiving, and loyal, yet rely on us for their safety. We just want to give that back to them. RMLR has no shelter, we rely solely on foster homes. Please join us in the fight to get more and more dogs adopted and less and less put to sleep!
