Welcome to Southwest Oasis Labrador Rescue (SOLR)! We are a rescue organization dedicated to helping  Labradors and Labrador mixes who have been displaced from their home environment find new loving homes for the remainder of their lives. We are entirely non-profit and depend on our volunteers and donations to keep us going.

Meet Elwood!

Do you believe in dreams come true? I sure do. My name is Elwood and I am a handsome 9 year old Black Lab mix that was found wandering in rural New Mexico and taken to a small shelter where I sat for months wishing for a family to love. No one chose me and my time was up. My sweet personality and desire to remain cheerful caught the attention of the shelter volunteers and they made it their mission to get me rescued. I traveled by car and even by airplane to arrive at my foster’s home in Arizona. I know that I am lucky to be alive and everyone tells me I am something very special.
I am a happy boy who is so grateful for being rescued. I am always wagging my tail. I love dogs, don’t bother cats and love meeting people of all sizes. I am great in the car, good on a leash, housebroken, non destructive in the house and love to play with toys. I am not a hiker but daily walks are my type of activity. I am mellow, super affectionate and love to give kisses and snuggle. You can say, I am an easy keeper. 
I am looking for someone who wants a companion to love and to share their life with. Someone who isn’t gone long hours and will consider me family. I promise to keep you smiling and let you know how much I love that you are giving me the best years of my life.

We have decided to reduce Elwood’s adoption fee to help him get into his furever home for the holidays. So now, some lucky family gets to adopt this sweet boy for $150! Elwood has so much love to give, he’s truly priceless!
