About Our Rescue Group:

Cincinnati Lab Rescue is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization committed to helping local Labrador Retrievers find great homes. Labrador Retrievers are loving and loyal dogs that make wonderful pets and family members! Unfortunately, there are many wonderful Labs without a home. Our volunteers work hard to help the many Labs abandoned daily in shelters, or found on the streets, receive the care they deserve. Our dogs are fostered in the homes of volunteers with great knowledge and appreciation for this loyal breed. We evaluate all of our dogs’ temperaments and suitability for living with other dogs, cats, and children. It is important to us that each dog receives excellent medical care. All dogs are kept up to date on vaccines, heartworm prevention, micro-chipped and spayed or neutered. Our goal is to meet the needs of each dog as an individual and to assure proper placement in a loving forever home.

A Message From Our Labs:

Dear Future Family,

We want to let you know that we are so happy you chose to adopt us. We know it won’t always be easy, especially at first. Some of us had great homes and favorite napping spots, but were given away by our families for different reasons. Some of us had families who never taught us how to trust, love and feel safe. We ended up in shelters where we were confused and afraid. We weren’t used to all that noise and missed laying in the warm sun. We might seem aloof or distant when we come home with you for the first time. We might even be upset, pacing, barking and panting to try and calm ourselves. We made it to rescue because someone could see we still had a lot of love to give. They recognized our gentle, playful and loving soul, deserving of a second chance at life. We promise that with time, patience and love, we will be whole again. Happy, loyal and most of all, grateful to have a family that won’t give up on us!

We love you so much and will give you sloppy kisses forever,

Your New Rescue Companion

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.
