Dog adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
While in our care, dogs are treated as though they are our own, getting all of the necessary attention both from a family as well as medically. All dogs are spayed or neutered and placed in a foster home as soon as possible to evaluate the dogs temperament as well as what type of home the dog would best be suited for.
Our adoption fees barely cover our expenses and we are involved in a continuous fundraising drive, if you can help out by donating your time or money, let us know we would love for you to join us and the Labs would too!
FOSTER HOMES NEEDED! One of the most important components of rescuing these wonderful dogs is our foster homes. We are often not able to save dogs simply because we do not have a foster home to put them in until their forever home is found. Foster families are provided with food, all necessary medical care and a crate. You can offer your home to foster a dog all year long or as your schedule allows. It is also a great way for children in a family to be a part of volunteering and giving back to the community.
"There is tremendous reward knowing you have helped match a dog and an adopter, and in doing so, you've had a profound effect on both lives. Neither will ever be the same again." -Kathy McGeever in the July/August Just Labs magazine.
If you would like more information about fostering please contact us or fill out an application right now.
We do have an adoption fee, please visit our website for our fees. Heartland Lab Rescue pays for all spay and neutering costs by our HLR vets, dogs are up to date on all vaccinations as well as flea and tick medication and heartworm preventative.
The fees barely cover the costs incurred by dogs in our program. In addition to this you are also helping to save the lives of very deserving Labradors. Each day there are labs that we have to pass up because we do not have the resources in funding or foster homes to put them in. All dogs are currently in a foster home where they are learning good doggie manners including housetraining!
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.
