We are an independent 501(c)(3) organization made up of experienced volunteers who are dedicated to the rescue and adoption of homeless Labrador Retrievers and their offspring that are in need of safe and loving homes.
We respond to requests for help from shelters, aid in the recovery of lost/abandoned Labradors and accept owner surrenders. We carefully place our Labradors into foster care. While in foster care, the dogs receive any medical treatment they need and are microchipped. This most often consists of spaying or neutering, updating vaccinations, testing for heart worm , tick and valley fever and treatment of whatever medical issues are deemed necessary and treatable.
We do not maintain a shelter, but instead find it beneficial to care for our Labradors in the homes of our foster families. This provides our Labradors the opportunity to maintain, or regain, their confidence as a valued member of a family. It allows our fosters an opportunity to evaluate the temperament and needs of the Labrador in order to find the most suitable adopters and permanent home environment.
We work to educate the public about the virtues of the Labrador Retriever breed. We encourage the public to join this cause through donations, volunteerism and humane care of animals. We also strive to reduce the pet overpopulation problem by educating about the importance of spaying and neutering animals.
The Labradors who are in the rescue process have been evaluated to best of our ability to assure that they are friendly to humans and other dogs. We carefully screen Labs with a history of biting, people or dog aggression and/or severe anxiety issues. We will not intake a dog that is a serious safety risk. However, we will provide training to correct behavioral issues when it is deemed plausible by our medical and behavioral volunteers.
