Scout 7 month old female puppy
Scout was to be euthanized by her owners when she became incontinent. But a friend of theirs contacted us to alert us to her plight. Needless to say, a puppy like this deserves a chance and so we took her in immediatly.
Scouts owners never spent the money to have her looked at or helps and instead decided to euthanise her as it was cheaper that doing the expensive diagnostic testing required to find out what was wrong.
Indi Lab feels this girl deserves a chance at life. After careful diagnostic testing we have discovered that Scount has ectopic ureters meaning that there are a ureteral openings in areas other than the normal position in the bladder, causing urine to leak. It is a surgically treatable condition.
Scout requires a complete blood panet, a urinalysis and culture, treatment for secondary urinary tract infections, an ultrasound, a cystoscopy under anethesia, bladder imaging studies, and finally surgical correction and recovery.
We NEED YOUR HELP!
To date, the cost to save Scout is $4,200 total!
Please if you can donate to help us help Scout it would mean so much. We cannot do it without donations and every donation is tax decutible. Skip a dinner out or a coffee and donate as much as you can.

Leche: 2 year old female Lab needs help!
Leche was to be euthanized by her owners when her uterus and vagina prolapsed during her heat cycle. If you look at the photo you can see the alarming site.
Rather than spend the money to help her, or make some effort to do something, they opted to euthanize her especially because they bought her to breed her and now that wasn't an option.
Lucky for Leche, a friend of a friend took her in and got her to us.
This is an extreme case of prolapse requiring specialized surgery and recovery as well as repeat bloodwork, and other diagnostics, medications, and treatments to be sure Leche is taken care of properly and at the lowest risk.
It has been 6 weeks since Leche's initial surgery and she is still not healing so we will be doing a surgery with Dr. Anderson at ASEC who is a boarded surgeon. Our estimate for this necessary surgury is $2,700.
Our cost to save Leche started at $1,200 but now we need another $2,700!!!
Please if you can donate to help us help Leche it would mean so much. We cannot do it without donations and every donation is tax decutible.
Skip a dinner out or a coffee and donate as much as you can.
Let's help this beautiful purebred young Lab have a chance at a home she truly deserves!

Your sponsorship has helped us care for Malec and Brandy!
Malec the Golden came to us with chemical burns down his entire back and onto one foot. Unreal that this could happen to a dog this wonderful. We stepped up for Malec knowing their would be veterinary costs associated with him. But we did so knowing we could ask you for help.
Malec was bypassed by other breed rescues as it was thought that he would be expensive and might not like people anymore. It's true, it was expensive, but Malec LOVES people and his heart has remained intact. He is a very special boy.
Malec had to have his injuries treated in a very specific way. He recieved the best veterinary care possible. And thanks to Indi Lab, Malec is now healing in his loving foster home.
Brandy came to us, skin and bones, the product of a cruelty investigation. Brandy, a 7 year old chocolate Labrador, is sufferring from mange, immune issues, and the results of living with malnutrition probably for her entrie life. Brandy's owners agreed to surrender her to animal control when they were made to realize that they would be in even worse trouble if they didn't treat her medically. These are people who never should have been permitted to own any animal.
Brandy requires excelent care to move foward. This includes regular vet visits, repeated bloodwork, xrays, special customized nutirion, etc. It is our goal to bring Brandy to good health so she can be adopted.
Brandy is in the most loving foster home and we are doing all we can to bring this sweet girl to healthy. You can help us do it.
BRANDY AND MALEC TOTAL COSTS: Over $3,700
We cannot cover the costs of medical for these and other needy retrievers without your help. Please won't you consider helping us help the retrievers who have no chance without us? Even a small check or paypal donation will help. Skip something like coffee out for a week or a dinner out. All donations matter.
Without donations we cannot do the work we do and as we struggle to cover these costs, we also need to be able to move forward to help other dogs in desperate need.
Thank you so much for considering a 100% tax deductible donation to help us do our good work.
The healing of Duke
Duke came to us missing most of his fur, with puss in his eyes and ears from infections so bad that he was actually brough to the vet to be euthanized. The images at right were taken 4 weeks apart during the healing of Duke.
Indi Lab Rescue stepped up for Duke. Our dedicated foster home and top notch veterninary care coupled with customize nutrition, a raw food diet, and almost anything else needed to help, allowed us to bring Duke to health.
This is what we do for dogs. We give dogs like Duke a chance to live, to heal, and to find forever homes.
