We are an all-volunteer, nonprofit tax-exempt organization in the greater San Francisco Bay Area of Northern California. Our rescue team saves purebred Labrador Retrievers and Lab mixes from shelters, as well as assist people giving up their dogs for adoption. We provide foster homes, veterinary care, and rehabilitation when needed, and place them with loving, forever families. Read some of our happy ending Stories.
Our services are limited to the San Francisco Bay Area and encompass the following area codes: 408, 415, 510, 650, 707, 831, and 925.
Show your support of lab rescue by shopping in our new GGLRR logo and Lab merchandise Store. Profits from our product sales go towards helping more homeless Labs.
GGLRR saves about 300 Labs a year but the need is far greater with so many people losing jobs and homes or other reasons for abandoning their dog. A Story of a Shelter Dog is a poignant reminder of our responsibilities to man's best friend. If you want to help Labs in need, please consider adopting a rescue/shelter dog, making a Donation of cash/vehicle, or donating your time as a Volunteer. We urgently need foster homes so recent rescues don't have to stay in kennels!

GGLRR exists to:
Essentially GGLRR facilitates the placement of unwanted Labrador Retrievers into loving new homes. We have a spay/neuter requirement for all dogs that we place. If a dog has been abused or needs medical attention, we provide emotional and medical rehabilitation. Individuals who desire to adopt Labrador Retrievers must first contact one of our rescue representatives for adoption screening before being introduced to any of our dogs. Our primary purpose is to provide good homes for Labrador Retrievers who might otherwise be abandoned or euthanized by their previous owners. Through education, we seek to reduce the unwanted dog population and increase responsible pet ownership.>> GGLRR Labs on PetFinder.
