Hi! My name is Bell, and I’m one of the 3 sugar babies. You may have already read about us on Facebook... My two sisters (Coco and Bon Bon) and I are only 2 years old, but we have been on quite a journey already! We used to live outside and got really skinny. The man we used to live with finally took us to a vet who told him we have diabetes. He said he couldn’t take care of us anymore and asked the vet to put us down. Luckily the vet’s receptionist contacted DLRR who took us in! Yep, turned out they saved us...and we are super thankful! All 3 of us need insulin shots, just like humans with diabetes do. My foster parents didn’t have a clue how to do it, but learned quite quickly. It’s all doable if you love someone...It would be great if all three of us could stay together, but I understand that might be difficult. Maybe I could just stay with Coco, because I really like to cuddle with her! Coco is going blind too, just like me. I’m actually blind already because my diabetes wasn’t treated, but I heard rumors they are trying to do eye surgery so that I can see again. It’s not cheap, so DLRR, who rescued us, is taking donations to help. Chances are REALLY good that I can see again and live a happy life. That’s what the eye specialist said. Wouldn’t that be cool?!?! Oh, how I’d love to be able to see again and not bump into stuff and be able to goof around. I do manage pretty well, even being blind, but I do remember what it was like when I was able to see, and it was pretty neat! I miss it... Of course I’m housebroken and I am really good in the crate. I actually kinda like it! My foster family always tells me I’m so lovable and such a pretty girl. I can’t see myself in the mirror, but I hope they are right. Do you want to
find out for yourself?

If you are interested in this dog, please fill out an application at www.DLRRphoenix.org. Someone will call to schedule a home visit so you can become an approved adopter. Also, visit our wonderful Facebook page at www.facebook/desertlab. Thanks!

About Desert Labrador Retriever Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Here is our mission statement from our website:
Desert Labrador Retriever Rescue of Phoenix (DLRR) is a non-profit, all volunteer organization dedicated to finding loving, life-long homes for displaced Labrador Retrievers. In addition to rescue, our volunteers provide medical care and/or rehabilitation for these dogs and then attempt to match them with appropriate, permanent homes. We also provide Labrador Retriever breed and training information on request. Through public education, we strive to help eliminate animal overpopulation by encouraging the spaying and neutering of pets.

Come Meet Our Pets...

DLRR has regular events where potential adopters and the public can see some of our dogs. These events are listed on our website at www.dlrrphoenix.org.
As noted in the description below of how to adopt one of our labs, approved adopters may contact one of our volunteers to meet one of our available dogs.
Also check out our Facebook page, where many of our dogs are spotlighted. www.facebook.com/desertlab

Our Adoption Process...

Every potential adopter (who must live in Arizona) must fill out an online form and pay a small fee. A volunteer will contact the potential adopter and schedule a home visit. If everything looks good at the home visit, the potential adopter begins to receive our Dogalog twice a week that shows all available dogs. If a potential adopter is interested in a particular dog, he or she contacts the volunteer listed for that particular dog and arranges a time to meet the dog. If it is a potential match, we ask the adopter to think about it for about 24 hours. There is a fee to adopt one of our dogs and it is based on the dog's age, with younger dogs having a larger fee than our older labs. There is a contract to be signed.
