Our darling son is home from his oil field job for the day only.

Said that there is a full breed black lab out on one of the job sites that has a broken back right leg. He said everyone is feeding the dog, and he hobbles around, very well mannered and loving, and aprox 2 yrs old.

DOES ANYONE know of a family/shelter that will accept a dog that has been living on a oil well job site for the past 6/7 months, is LOVED by everyone there and only in need of a loving home and care now that he has sustained this injury that needs tending to????

PLEASE DM me if you or someone you know might be willing to help...our greyhound would NEVER accept another dog in the house (having come from a rescue herself she is REALLY protective of her turf) but if we can find someone that is willing to help out, our son will make the drive down to that site as he gets his 1 week break first week of Dec and scoop the dog up and bring him here.

ANY and all toughts to help out MOST appreciated!!!!

Paka--contact Heart of Texas Lab Rescue. hotlabrescue.org We'd do it in a heartbeat, but I'm afraid right now, we just can't afford doggie surgery. Trying to get ourselves back on our feet now that hubby is home. Sounds like a sweet pup.

Someone on here had luck with San Antonio Pets Alive. ADL and the San Antonio Humane Society are often crowded and will only take young puppies. With ACS, you won't know if the dog will get out alive.

Thanks for the alternative...seems the HOTLAB does not take the animals without spay/nutering/heartworm negative and proof of ownership...well, DUH!!! Guess if the poor boy had it that good he would not need us to rescue him. Anyway, will certainly try the other location...any other "fall back" info most appreciated...sure hate to see the little guy suffer out there if there is an alternative for him....If someone is willing, I am even willing to drive down their myself and get him BEFORE our son could bring him home in a little over a week...

Wow, really? That's crazy...they rescue labs from shelters all the time! I don't understand that.

There's another group--SNIPSA...they may be able to help.

No...son is out of reception range in one of the fields...I have left a msg. So far I have not found much in the way of help here..seems most of these places don't take unless they are healthy, young and without issues...the one shelter focuses on those animals that are next in line for kill schedule...admirable work to be sure, but not much help in this situation.

Hoping our sone is out at that same spot this trip...will let you know as I hear. Still praying for a miracle...stranger things have happened.

The only other thing I can think of, is maybe to call some vet's in the area to see if they could fix him up cheap or free. Maybe the story will pull on their heartstrings enough.
If not free then maybe we can get some money together to cover the difference.

After the pup is fixed up it should be a lot easier to find a place for it.
