Maddie's Story...
Maddie is a beautiful, light yellow, senior female Labrador. She is about 12 years old, and is one of the kindest dogs we have ever met. She was rescued from a high-kill shelter in Northern Utah, and is now in a loving foster home. Her foster home says she is having a hard time walking and standing, but though in pain still comes over to give a sweet kiss. Maddie has bad arthritis, and bad hips/elbows/knees. We know Maddie will not be going into a new home, but will stay with her foster home until it is time to go to the Bridge.

Maddie is an example of why we started the No Lab Left Behind program. Some of these loving senior Labs will be rescued and get lucky enough to have many happy and healthy years ahead of them with a new loving home. Others, like Maddie, are rescued for the sole reason that we do not want to leave them there to die alone in a cold and depressing shelter. These seniors have obviously been faithful, loving companions to some other home out there. And, though that home forgot about them, we will not. We know that these dogs deserve more, especially during that time when they leave this world. We will not leave a senior Lab behind to die that way.

If you feel the way we do about these wonderful seniors, please think about donating towards the No Lab Left Behind program. Blankets and dog beds, senior dog food, and other supplies are always needed to make their stay as comfortable as possible. If you would like to make a monetary donation or sponsor one of our senior Labs, you can do so through the Rescue's PayPal donation link at Donations made in honor of your own senior Lab who has passed on to the Bridge will be listed on our sites 'In Memory Of'. All donations made specifically to the No Lab Left Behind program will be used towards the rescue, care, and medical bills associated with those sweet seniors.

In Maddie's case, there will not be an adopter nor any adoption fee to help pay for her Veterinary care and expenses. If you would like to be Maddie's sponsor, please send an e-mail to We are hoping to give Maddie the best we can for her last days before she passes on.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Maddie, a Provo Labrador Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Labrador Retriever for sale in Provo, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Provo.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Provo already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Provo breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Labrador Retriever breeders who help with Labrador Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Provo paves the way for another one to be saved.
