Lab Rescue

Lab Rescue LRCP is a non-profit, volunteer-driven organization committed to rescuing, vetting, fostering and finding loving new homes for 1,000 abandoned and homeless Labrador Retrievers each year. .

Where Are Our Labs

Lab Rescue LRCP places dogs in Maryland, Virginia, Washington DC, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Delaware, and northeast North Carolina (30 miles east of I-95 and north of the Pamlico Sound). Adopters must travel to Maryland, Virginia, or Washington, DC, with their family, both human and canine, to meet the dog they want to adopt. .

How We Care For Our Labs

Our labs are evaluated for temperament and then placed with foster families where they are loved, exercised, and further evaluated as they await adoption. All of our dogs are provided with rabies, lepto and distemper shots, tested for heartworm and lyme, spayed or neutered, and microchipped.

How To Adopt A Lab Rescue Dog!

If you are interested in adopting a dog from Lab Rescue, please complete an adoption application. An adoption coordinator will be assigned to you and assist you in finding the match that is right for you. If you prefer, you can attend a Lab Rescue Adopt-A-Lab-Day.

Lab Rescue Adopt-A-Lab-Days

Join us at one of our upcoming adoption days to meet 15 or 25 Labs, all of whom are ready to go home with new families. You can complete an application, be interviewed, and go home with a new Lab that day, but all household members, human and canine, must be present.

There's no need to wait for an adoption day! We adopt dogs out every day from foster homes.

You Can Help Us Save More Labs

Lab Rescue is a volunteer-driven organization and we need your help to save more dogs.

We need families to foster a dog in their home until the dog gets adopted. This helps us learn more about the dog and find the best possible match for an adoptive family. Give fostering a try and get some extra Lab love in your life!

We also need assistance at upcoming adoption days so we can show more dogs and increase their chances of being adopted. In addition, we need help transporting dogs to and from vets, shelters, and foster homes. Learn more about volunteer opportunities.

Lab Rescue depends on donations, in addition to adoption fees, to pay for veterinary care for the dogs. Make a donation today.
