I got a new baby! Rescued her yesterday from an adoption group that comes to my place of employment every weekend to try and adopt out dogs. Her card said "Lab X" and I was just curious if anyone had any ideas?

When I put her back down to finish out the walk, her front leg was tucked under and as her back legs hit the pavement her nose touched (mind you I said touched) the pavement... She starts screaming like she got her teeth knocked out or broke a leg....

Stewie to the Rescue (Stewie!) has two primary goals:

Make sure that no pet is ever relinquished to a NYC kill shelter due to the expense of their medical care, and

That no rescue group is ever prevented from saving an animal’s life because of a lack of funds when a foster family or adoptive family is available.
Through partnership...
