Brookline Labrador Retriever Rescue


Brookline is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, all-volunteer organization funded entirely by donations. Volunteers live all over Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and parts of Delaware. Brookline cares for medically needy dogs with 68% of all expenses going toward vet costs. They have dedicated foster families that help needy Labs become ready for their forever homes.

$5 from each Metal Rescue sold this month goes to support Brookline Labrador Retriever Rescue.

Brookline started in 1997 with a single volunteer saving a single Lab. Now with around 100 volunteers, they place an average of 130 Labs in forever homes each year. Volunteers work closely with local shelters to evaluate Labs in danger of being euthanized. Labs are evaluated to make sure they have a temperament that is suitable for adoption by an individual or family and then placed into foster homes, where they remain for a minimum of two weeks so the foster families can gain insight into the Labs’ personality and to learn any specific needs the Lab requires. They are examined by a veterinarian, brought up-to-date on vaccinations, and spayed or neutered.
