Stories like this hit me right in the gut, and I'm hoping you will be able to help these amazing dogs in need. 

The list of things I love in life is simple: My family, Country music, Keith Urban, making stuff and dogs. I am blessed to be " Mommy" to two beautiful girls, and three very feisty fur babies. Brooks and Urban were adopted from Noah's Ark Animal Sanctuary in Rockford, and our sweet lab Chloe joined our family a little over a year ago after her original owners could no longer keep her and we took her in.

If you've ever been lucky enough to have a lab in your life, you know why this story is especially heart breaking. Unfortunately, my home is too full to take any of these sweet babies in, but I'm hoping yours is not. – Rockford’s News Leader


Oh, the tears. If you would like to adopt a lab from LEARN, learn more, or make a donation to their cause, check out their website here.
