Meet Shania – Labrador Retriever Rescue Picture

Posted in Dog Pictures

Say hello to Shania, a sweet, beautiful Labrador Retriever puppy rescued by the amazing folks at Southern California Labrador Retriever Rescue (SCLRR). Note please the satellite dish around her head and the scary scar on her leg. At the time this picture was taken this little girl was just a few days past major surgery on her leg to correct a condition that nearly cost her life. Only 8 months old or so, Shania began to limp and show serious signs of leg pain and weakness.

Posted in Dog News

Ventura will once again host the popular dog rescue benefit known as the Pooch Parade. Taking place July 24, 2011, this year’s event marks the fourteenth anniversary of the fundraiser for local non-profit Canine Adoption & Rescue League (CARL).
