Lab Rescue gets $50K Pepsi grant

Congratulations to Lab Recue of the LRCP (Labrador Retriever Club of the Potomac) on recently winning a $50,000 Pepsi Refresh Grant.

Through online voting in the November Pepsi Refresh Contest, Lab Rescue received enough votes to place in the top 10 and receive the grant to fund the development of a web-based rescue management system.

According to Lab Rescue’s monthly newsletter the Fetch, “The web-based rescue management system will enable us to cost effectively manage our complex rescue operations, enabling us to save more Labs.”

Lab Rescue is a non-profit organization staffed by volunteers that rescues, fosters and places homeless, abused, or abandoned Labrador Retrievers and Golden Retriever-Labrador Retriever mixes in the mid-Atlantic area.

In 2011, Lab Rescue volunteers rescued 902 labs, a record for the organization. The number of labs they’ve rescued has increased 37 percent since 2008.

They currently have more than 30 labs awaiting their forever homes, from as young as two litters of 6-week-old black lab puppies (see picture below) to an elderly pair of 11-year-old labs, Smokey and Bandit. See them all here.
