Although based in Connecticut, Labs4rescue has adopted Labs to residents of 36 states.

About Our Rescue Group:

Labs4rescue is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization .

WHO WE ARE: We are a group of individuals from several states throughout the US, who work together to save homeless Labrador Retrievers. We are a Rescue, and not a traditional animal shelter. Our labs are fostered in private homes or sponsored by a shelter volunteer so they can be evaluated in a normal environment. As such, our labs are currently scattered across New England, the South and the Mid-West, depending on the availability of foster homes and our close partnerships with various shelters. We are constantly looking for foster homes, and will happily accept a foster home in any region. Our ability to save labs is dramatically impacted by the number of foster homes we have. Please let us know if you would like to provide a foster home to a lab in need.

Our Adoption Process:

Please see our full service web site for complete adoption process details.

CHOOSING A LAB: Please review the available labs on our Current Pet Listwhich is available on our web site, carefully considering what you feel would be an appropriate match for your family. There are many more than we could ever save, so if the lab you are initially interested already has an adoption pending, we are sure we can find another you will equally love! Once your application is received, you will be in communication with the Adoption Coordinator for each lab available. Our Adoption Coordinators are very detailed in their description of our labs, complete with the "goods" and "not so goods" and will work with you to make the right decision for your family. Our Adoption Coordinators will communicate with you via email and telephone.

FINALIZING THE ADOPTION: If the lab is fostered in your area, the foster family may invite you to meet the lab. After a match is made, we will arrange a home visit at your residence, to insure the safety of your home. If the lab is being fostered outside your geographical region, transport will then be arranged.

ADOPTION FEES: Our fees are: a $15 non-refundable application fee and a $365 non-refundable adoption fee for all vet expenses (spay/neuter, shots, etc.) and transportation to ensure your lab gets to you in a safe, professional manner. More information about the cost of owning a lab is also available on our website, click here to learn more.

ADOPTER'S CHECKLIST and ADOPTION CONTRACT: Please download our Adopter's Checklist which outlines our process and offers many good suggestions. Click here to review a Sample Adoption Contract.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us with questions. We know that our program is different than a traditional brick and mortar shelter, and we would love to tell you more of the specifics. We are so proud of the labs we have saved and look forward to working with you to bring a lab to your family

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.
