2 Black Labs Need A Home

I just got this emailed to me this morning. The owner of 2 black labs has cancer and is looking for a new home for his "children"..... This kind of takes a personal tone for me, as I have a family member with cancer as well.
Please read, or forward this message to someone you think might be able to adopt these "children"

Quote:
Look at these PRECIOUS faces.  These boys deserve to stay together.  There is contact info listed below.

PLEASE forward this email….The owner has terminal cancer and is trying to find a home for both dogs (preferably together) while he is still around.
If you know anyone who is interested please call  404-394-3126.

where are they located?

I guess down here near Atlanta somewhere. I'm sure the owner would let them live out their lives in a great home anywhere. I don't think he will turn down a great home in another state. I'd be willing to help out by personally driving them anywhere in the U.S. or Canada. That's my offer of charity to this sad situation. I'll pay their way to a new home out of my own pocket (it's the best I personally have to offer at this time). I am not leaving to goto Europe until Feb. 12th. If anyone can help find a home that would be great! Or adopt them and Gruden "Captain" Beefpaws together, and I'll take all THREE!  ;)

now that is an offer you can't refuse! i love labs but don't have room or a yard that pups need...unlike all the pea headed students in my neighborhood with huge dogs they can hardly take care of....

Has he contacted a lab rescue? They may be willing to help. It sucks b/c labs are soooo common in shelters. So sad :(

ANYONE that wants to contact me about this rescue and have me "meet and greet" the dogs, contact me via email: eval(unescape('%64%6f%63%75%6d%65%6e%74%2e%77%72%69%74%65%28%27%3c%61%20%68%72%65%66%3d%22%6d%61%69%6c%74%6f%3a%73%74%61%72%73%68%69%6e%65%72%31%32%33%40%79%61%68%6f%6f%2e%63%6f%6d%22%3e%73%74%61%72%73%68%69%6e%65%72%31%32%33%40%79%61%68%6f%6f%2e%63%6f%6d%3c%2f%61%3e%27%29%3b'))
I sent an email to the contact telling her that I would help find them a home, and help transport the dogs anywhere in the US or Canada if needed. Thanks to all of you for caring!

I've always wanted a chocolate lab named Hersey.  Unfortunately, I think the cat would kill me (or worse get up and leave) if I brought home a dog, especially after bringing home two babies.

Definately gets me to thinking though...

Fingers crossed they'll find a good home,

No, I have not heard back since I first contacted her (just that 1 time). I know the email is making it's rounds. Seven more people from the Atlanta area emailed me the same original email in the last few days. She may just be sorting out hundreds of emails....If that many people know about it, these 2 dogs will get a home. I'll let you know if I hear back from her again...
