Labrador Bathing 101

Labradors are beautiful dogs with thick coats that, unfortunately, shed.

Learn how you can help and read up on the breed; knowledge will help you in a number of ways. First, you will find out that there is so much to love about the lab in the first place. Discovering more information about lab rescues will be something that you will find very satisfying, and there is quite a bit of information on rescue of not only this special breed, but just about every other breed out there. Quite often it is up to the Humane Society or local animal cruelty prevention society to take care of rescuing animals of all types from abusive owners. That is not always the case, though.

Other rescue groups do exist in a number of areas specifically for the purpose of Labrador rescue. On our website, you’ll find a list of several different websites—some are very localized, others are national. One is even a Canadian website.
