AVAILABLE LABS

We are Temporarily Not Accepting Adoption Applications

Due to the impact of COVID-19, we have seen a surge in adoption applications and a disproportionate number of dogs who need to be rescued. To responsibly manage this imbalance, we are temporarily not accepting new adoption applications. If you would like to be contacted when we are accepting applications, please register for notifications.

Important Notes:

  • Finding Your Perfect Match: Below are brief descriptions of some of our dogs that are available for adoption. Because the list is constantly changing, we recommend that you apply to adopt as soon as you are ready and work with an Adoption Coordinator, who can provide you with more info about dogs that are a good match for you and your lifestyle.  
     

  • Adopting with Children: The safety of children in an adoptive home is one of our greatest priorities. Learn more about our approach to placing dogs in homes where little ones are present.
     

  • Adopting as a Townhome or Apartment Resident: As many of our dogs come from rural areas—where they have limited exposure to cars, new people and dogs, unexpected noises, and being leashed—we may limit placements for some dogs to single-family homes. Learn more > 
     

  • Adopting & Fences: We require fences for some of our dogs for a range of reasons. Learn more >
     

  • Heartworm: About ten percent of our dogs are diagnosed with Heartworm disease during their initial vetting. Heartworm is treatable, and Lab Rescue provides treatment for all infected dogs at no cost to the adopter. Learn more >

 

Bertha

Gender: 

Female

Age:

9 years

Good with:

Kids 10+, Dogs, Cats

Needs:

A loving forever home

Ready for a soft place to land

Bertha is a delightfully sweet and gentle girl. She gets excited when she sees and hears her leash because she loves being outside and on short walks, so lots of short walks will make her happy!  She will shower you with soft kisses once she is comfortable around you. She loves having her head scratched and will stand in front of you for hours for a face rub! She loves food and does a "happy dance" when her food is being prepared. Unfortunately, we have discovered that Bertha has malignant tumors- we aren't sure how much time she has left, but we have promised her that she will be spoiled with love for the rest of her life.

Chief

Gender: 

Male

Age:

4 years

Good with:

Kids 10+, Dogs

Needs:

A forever home with a physical or underground fence

Charming Chief!

Chief is a very handsome big black blockhead. He is very friendly and likes to be with you getting attention. He loves to retrieve and play with toys in the yard - as soon as he gets in the yard he looks for a toy, picks it up, and brings it over to you with it hanging part way out of your mouth so you will try and get it! If you don't he will drop it and bat it towards you so you can toss it again. Chief also likes to go for car rides. He is overweight due to lack of exercise, but the good thing is he likes to play and retrieve which will help him lose that weight quick! He would like an active family that has a yard for him to play in and will give him the attention and exercise he needs.

Needs:

A forever home with a physical or underground fence

Likes to say Howdy to everyone he meets!

Cowboy is a handsome, easy going pup whose favorite activity is lounging indoors with his family. But don't let that fool you - he's also a social butterfly who loves everyone he meets, people or dogs! He loves any and all attention, which he will reward with plenty of kisses.

Ducky

Gender: 

Male

Age:

Good with:

Kids 10+, must go to a home with another dog

Needs:

A loving forever home with another dog

Lucky Ducky!

Ducky is extremely well-behaved for a young pup, and he LOVES the resident foster Lab and curls up with him for a nap after an energetic play session. After a walk, he likes to relax on the front porch and watch the passers by, with or without dogs. He has been an outside dog and is learning about the good life indoors. He proudly carries shoes to his bed, but easily gives up what he's not supposed to chew and then concentrates on the toys he's given. He needs another dog in his life to build his confidence and show him the Ways of the Lab World.

Frazier

Gender: 

Male

Age:

9 months

Good with:

Kids 10+, Dogs

Needs:

A loving forever home with a physical fence and another dog

Ready to blossom

Frazier is making great strides in trusting people. He seems partial to men and will let his foster dad love all over him while he is stingy with his contact with the ladies. He is not crated yet but he has his "area" and a small pen and he loves it. Frazier absolutely lives for other dogs and must go to a home with another dog. He is a cautious boy but, given time, will warm up to new people. Frazier would love to have a fenced yard and a secure, dog savvy home to help him continue to blossom!

Gracie #2

Gender: 

Female

Age:

2 years

Good with:

Kids 10+, Dogs, Cats

Needs:

A loving forever home with at least two other dogs and a physical fence

Needs plenty of belly rubs

Gracie's foster family has loved watching her come out of her shy shell to reveal a sweet, loving, and confident dog! Gracie's tail is now always wagging asking for pets. She even loves snuggles so much, she will dive bomb her foster while sitting on the couch just to be snuggled! While initially unsure about this whole "work from home" thing, she has become a dependable coworker and spends the day curled up in a bed on either side of her boss, sometimes with her foster sister curled up in the same bed. She loves the spring weather and rolling around in the grass. Gracie loves running around with her foster pack outside in the sunshine, and loves to play with them. She thrives with multiple dogs and gains confidence from them, and does great with one or a few patient, calm and consistent humans. She can't wait to find her perfect forever family.

Hayley & Jenny

Age:

1 and 3

Good with:

Kids 10+, Dogs, Cats

Needs:

A loving forever home with a physical fence

Twice as much fun!

Jenny and Hayley are always playing and running outside! Jenny (right) and Hayley (left) became a bonded pair when they met in their foster home, and these beautiful girls have been inseparable for the past two months. Jenny will do just about anything for a treat, and Hayley feels very brave around Jenny. They're looking for an understanding family in a quiet area, willing to work with them and let them approach on their terms. They're not your typical outgoing Labbie gals. However, when they feel the time is right, they will hang out with you on the couch and cover your hands with kisses!

Lily #3 & Suzi

Gender: 

Female/Female bonded pair

Age:

7 years

Good with:

Kids 10+, Dogs, Cats

Needs:

A loving forever home

Energetic pups

These sweet sisters are quite affectionate between their walks, play, and naps. Lily's life motto is “Eat, Love, Play, Sleep” as she excitedly explores her world and watches for the critters that each new day brings. Suzi is more low-key and enjoys her quiet neighborhood watch from the window seat when she’s not napping or snuggling with Foster Mom. Both dogs enjoy their noontime play sessions where Lily eagerly fetches tennis balls while Suzi inspires the occasional chase as she waits for the treat break. 


After being in their foster home, Suzi & Lily have settled into an easy routine. They have shown many sides to their fun personalities from serious to happy to silly with Lily showing an obsession for tennis balls, while Suzi regularly naps on the fourth stair step. Lily blew into town with smiles, kisses, and energy and is still excited about everything that each new day brings. Suzi was a bit unsure about her new surroundings though she warmed up quickly and was soon giving Foster Mom kisses. Both are excellent snuggle buddies (though not so much with each other) who regularly enjoy pressing close for love and attention. 


These sweethearts are fantastic isolation companions who ask for very little beyond a couple walks and a play session each day in their doggie friend’s backyard where they run their little hearts out.

Maserati & Mercedes

Gender: 

Female/Female Bonded Pair

Age:

1.5 years

Good with:

Kids 15+, Dogs

Needs:

A forever home with another dog and a physical fence

Shy, sweet sisters

These beautiful black girls may have fancy names, but they are quiet little ladies. We have nicknamed them Maggie & Maisie and are working hard to help them learn a life where humans are kind and loving. While these young girls are very shy around humans, they blossom around one another and other dogs. While it's not required, the duo would do best in a home that already has dogs—the additional canines give them confidence and will show them how to live the happy Lab life that they may have missed out on until now. Maggie & Maisie are looking for a quiet home, without younger kids who can be noisy and active, and patient forever humans who will be excited to help these girls slowly come out of their shells.

Shadie

Gender: 

Female

Age:

2 years

Good with:

Kids 10+, Dogs

Needs:

A loving forever home

Sweet Shadie

Looking for someone to help you stay cool on a sunny day? How about our little Shadie??? This gorgeous girl is looking for a loving family to take care of her as she grows up. Shadie has been a great house guest for her foster family - she loves car rides, treats, and sleeping on the foot of the bed. While Shadie doesn't seem like a lap dog, she's certainly (as her name suggests) a shadow dog that will stick to you no matter which room of the house you move to! She also has an adorable grin. If your summer days could use some shade, bring this sweet girl home!

Super (Snuggly!) Trooper

Trooper loves his cuddle time, especially in the evening! He loves playing with sticks in the yard. But most of all, Trooper is like a sponge when it comes to loving affection. He almost purrs like a cat! He is also a hugger himself! If you're looking for some Cuddly Lab Love, Trooper just might be your guy!
