Welcome to LRR

LRR is an all-volunteer group whose purpose is to rescue, rehabilitate, and rehome abused, abandoned, neglected, and unwanted Labrador Retrievers in the mid-Atlantic region.

About LRR

LRR was created in 1993 to fill a need for a purebred Labrador Retriever rescue organization in the Washington DC metropolitan area. Although there are other rescue organizations in our area, we believe our rescue is unique in the amount of care we provide to our Labs and adopters.

LRR's Evolution

As part of LRR’s evolution over the past year, we are now focusing more on finding dogs for past adopters and friends of LRR, rather than taking in many dogs and spending months finding adopters for them. Our philosophy remains the same: finding the perfect match and placing each dog into his or her “forever home”. Due to this change, dogs may not be listed on our web site since we usually have a number of approved adopters ready for a new family member. LRR is also helping to educate the public in animal welfare and providing financial assistance to shelters adopting Labs directly to new families.

LRR Alumni Dogs

Once a dog is adopted into its new “forever home”, his or her story is moved to our alumni dog list. Take a look at all the happy Labs who have moved on to wonderful lives with their new familes!

Loyal Order of Labs

Happy Tails

From time to time, adopters (or their LRR dogs!) will send us stories and photos of their new lives together. We love hearing from you and are delighted to share these stories here on our web site.
