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 >

A loving forever home
Silly wiggle butt
Dumpling is a silly wiggly fun loving girl. After being on her own as stray she is happy to have people to love on her and give her belly rubs. She loved everyone she met and really wanted to play with the other dogs in the waiting room at the Vet. Dumpling is thrilled to be out of the shelter and in her foster home where she can get affection, chew on her toys, and play tug. She loves morning walks, riding in the car, is affectionate with her people and good with other dogs. If you're looking for a sweet, goofy girl who takes treats gently and gives great kisses, Dumpling just might be your girl!

Looking for a loving family
THANKS TO A GENEROUS DONOR WHO WOULD LIKE TO SEE ALL SENIORS IN THEIR HOMES IN TIME FOR SUMMER FUN, THE SENIOR ADOPTION FEE IS HALVED TO $125!!!
Eboni (aka Ebby) has a sweet, quiet personality. She loves playing with tennis balls, either with someone else or by herself. She enjoys casual strolls around the neighborhood and is great on leash. She has a little weakness in her backend so her walks are at a slow pace, but she enjoys going outside. She has excellent house manners and does not need a crate. She doesn’t get on the furniture and rides well in the car. Foster Mom is home with her during the day, but when Eboni is left alone for short periods of time she is always good. Eboni had a lot of fun playing with a neighborhood pup and would probably enjoy living with another dog. She has little to no interest in food. She leaves treats laying on the floor or on her bed for hours. But, she will always check out what you are eating, and never turns down a tortilla chip! Eboni can be a little unsure around new people. When house guests visited for the weekend, she warmed up after 30 minutes—-very good progress. She’s never clingy or attention-seeking. She is just a lovely girl and a mellow companion. Eboni would do best in a mature household with quieter noises and not a lot of commotion. Loud and sudden noises tend to startle her. She went on a walk in the evening (dark outside) and encountered a lot of bikes and scooters. She preferred to walk on the street to avoid them on the sidewalk. Foster Mom let Eboni sniff and approach the bikes/scooters slowly to check things out. Eboni sniffed them and seemed to be better. There were kids out on her walk, too, and she tends to avoid them as well (especially if they are riding a bike). She had her first Frosty Paw and she loved every minute of it!

A loving forever home with a physical fence. Needs to be the only dog in the home
Sonny is a sweet, fun boy, and everybody who meets him loves him. He adjusted to foster home life very smoothly and has been a lovely guest and companion. As we have gotten to know him better, we have learned that he wants to be the only dog in his home. He loves his people and spending time with just them. Some of his favorite activities are playing fetch, swimming, sunbathing, going for a walk or run, getting belly rubs, and of course cuddling! He’s happy to meet new people, showing interest without jumping or barking. This very handsome boy has good house manners too. He is looking for a family that is active and ready to involve him in long walks and hikes and extended play sessions. Sonny is an amazing boy and will make a fabulous family member!
