Thank you for your interest in Labrador Retriever Rescue, Inc. (LRR). LRR is a local rescue comprised of volunteers mainly in the East-Central U.S. Our service area is limited to:
We have been overwhelmed with the interest many of you outside of this area have shown in working with us to adopt or surrender a Lab. While we would love to be able to take advantage of so many good homes and Labs out there, LRR is unable to perform long distance adoptions or give-ups and we are not affiliated with any other Labrador rescue organization.
Applicants interested in adopting a dog from LRR should be prepared to travel locally to visit at least three dogs in their foster homes, which could be in any of the areas/states we work in!
Unfortunately, No. LRR is an independent rescue that is not networked with any other Labrador rescue, so we cannot assist you with finding a rescue closer to your home. However, we do have a couple of suggestions. You may want to try the AKC Labrador Retriever Rescue Network Search and Adopt-a-Pet. You can also use search portals such as Google and Yahoo to find labrador rescues in your area.
We also recommend you contact your local shelter/SPCA/Humane Society and inquire about local rescues. They most likely will not only know which rescues operate locally, but can also give you an idea of their policies and procedures.
