We are an independent, 501c3 organization made up of a group of volunteers who are dedicated to the rescue and re-homing of homeless Labrador Retrievers.
We respond to requests for help from shelters by placing the dog into foster care. While in foster care, the dog receives whatever medical care it needs. This most often consists of spaying or neutering, updating on vaccinations, testing for heartworm and de-worming.
We do not maintain a shelter, all of our dogs are in foster care. This allows the dog to maintain, or regain, its confidence as a household pet.
We also assist private owners seeking new homes for Labs in their care, by listing their dog.
We work to educate the public about the Labrador Retriever breed.
All of the Labs we list have been temperament tested. We do not represent Labs with a history of bites, people aggression or serious dog aggression.
