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 >

Benny is THE BEST!
Benny is a sweet gent! He helped keep an eye on foster mom as she cleaned the house. He also found a toy! He is learning how to live the good life. Benny may be 12 years old, but he’s got spunk and is a love bug too! He is great on the leash and takes treats gently. He enjoys the neighborhood dogs and loves when his people come home! Benny loves dogs and humans alike, but hasn’t come across any cats to see what happens. Come see how much love Benny has for you!

Active young gentleman!
Gunner is a handsome charmer who quickly wins over everyone he meets. This husky boy is working to lose a few pounds, though he's sure green beans are not nearly as tasty as bacon and Frosty Paws. His first night at his foster home, he showed off his skill at destuffing squeaky toys, quickly learned FM’s shoes are not dog toys, and demonstrated a fondness for indoor fetch. Gunner loves sniffing his way around the neighborhood during his walks and enjoys racing around the dog park chasing other dogs while ignoring fetch toys. This sweetheart, when not on neighborhood watch, spends much of his day snoring softly on the window chair, dog bed, floor, or couch. Gunner is a fantastic dog who will make some luck family very happy if they give him the training, exercise, and direction that a young pup needs.

A loving forever home with a physical or underground fence
Nancy is very enthusiastic about car rides no matter where she is going. This precious girl has old hip injuries that keep her from going on very long walks, but she enjoys a short walk or meandering around the yard on a sunny day. She adores being near her people. Nancy attended a special event at Bacon Ridge in AA County called Walk for the Woods with her foster parents. There was a guided trail hike where Nancy met many new dogs and mountain bikers. She loved all the new smells in the woods and greeted everyone with a wagging tail. She slept soundly Saturday night!
