Pets at Our Rescue Group:
Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:Most of Labs and Buddies dogs have found homes in southern California, from Orange County north to Santa Barbara County. A few of our dogs have traveled farther to their new forever homes outside of California.
About Our Rescue Group:Labs and Buddies, a no-kill, all-volunteer rescue, saves Labrador Retrievers, Lab mixes and other mixed breeds from high-kill shelters and places them in loving, qualified forever homes. Our special mission is to save black dogs because they are the least likely to be adopted out of shelters and thus are euthanized at a higher rate than are dogs with light-color coats.
Come Meet our Pets:All Labs and Buddies dogs are in foster homes or boarding, so we show by appointment. One day, we hope to have our own facility, but we're not there yet!
Our Adoption Process:Our basic adoption fee is $300. Certain dogs may have a higher fee, which helps to support the rescue.
The first step is to submit our online application (found on the L&B website, www.labsandbuddies.org). The application lets us know about your lifestyle and preferences so we can introduce you to dogs that match what you're looking for. Although all our dogs (we think) are beautiful, choosing on looks alone doesn't guarantee a good match. Volunteers review the application and then contact you. Next is a meeting with your family and current dog(s), if any. Let us know if you have cats. A home check is necessary for puppies. Last step, the contract, payment, and a promise to send us photos!
