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.
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 >
