Pets at Our Rescue Group:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

We are a foster home based animal rescue. We do not have a shelter or boarding facility. L.A.B. Rescue & Adoption Network has foster homes in Connecticut and in Texas. Many of our dogs are fostering in the Hartford & Danbury area.

About Our Rescue Group:

Our experienced and dedicated volunteers donate their spare time and resources to rescue, rehabilitate, foster, and re-home homeless dogs at risk of being euthanized at area and rural kill shelters. Our volunteers are just like you; they have careers, families, hobbies, but ultimately each person felt drawn to help better the lives of animals in their own community and beyond. Our volunteers receive no monetary payment for their activities. Instead, their reward is the knowledge that a dog's life has been saved that otherwise would have been lost.

Come Meet our Pets:

To apply, please go to and complete an online adoption application. We are also actively seeking temporary foster homes for our babies.

For more information, please contact Suzanne Bristol @ 860-309-7611 or, Patti Walden at, or Sally McAninch at

We look forward to meeting and working with you!

Our Adoption Process:

Please go to and submit a free, online application. Once we receive your application, one of our volunteers will either call or email you, and work with you to find the right pet for your family! All of our dogs are fully vetted, spayed/neutered, up to date on all shots, fully wormed, and ready for their forever homes. Our Adoption Contract is standard, and we do require a vet reference and a home visit in most cases.

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.
