About Our Rescue Group:

Happy Labs Rescue is a 501 (c) (3) non profit organization who rescues Labrador Retrievers.

We are Ambassadors to Rally to Rescue from Purnia.

Our dogs come from shelters, owners who no longer can, or will, provide for them and, all too often, strays that are never searched for.

We evaluate the dogs' health and temperament and place the Labs with new adoptive families.

The rescued Lab goes directly to a veterinarian for a spay/neuter, vaccinations and any other necessary medical treatment including heartworm treatment if needed.

Many of these Labs have been neglected,not only in a nutritional/medical sense,but also in a psychological/emotional sense.

This socialization process promotes the dog's confidence, willingness to learn and trust. For many Labs, this is the first love and kindness they have ever known.

100% of your donations goes to caring for our animals, we have no administrative costs.

If you would prefer to make a payment directly to our vet to help pay our bill there, please email us @ happylabs@comcast.net

You can also send your Donation to
Happy Labs, Po Box 2296, Columbus,In 47202

If you feed your dogs Purina we can use the weight symbols to help pay our vet bills. Just sent them to us at the above address.

Come Meet our Pets:

PetSense the third Saturday of every month from 1 to 4pm.

If there is a dog you would like to see just let us know and we can bring that dog.

Our Adoption Process:

Our adoption fees range from $125 -$300 depending on the amount of veterinary costs incurred.

We get labs healthy, up to date on all shots, heartworm tested, on monthly preventative and spay/neutered. Depending on when we receive them and when they are adopted , we try to work on housetraining and house manners.

Our Adopted Pets:

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
