The GDLRR Mission

Our mission is to rescue and re-home purebred Labrador Retrievers and lab mixes 5 years or younger that have the look and temperament of a lab into loving and caring homes.Our goal is to help local shelters place a dog that has reached the time limit, take in the neglected and unwanted dog, and in some cases injured ones.

...and some very good dogs.

Foster an animal in need

Fostering is a great way to help shelters from becoming overcrowded and therefore saving dogs from euthanasia and the best part is this can be done in the comfort of your home. GDLRR rescues purebred and mixes that display lab looks and temperament traits. Most are rescued from shelters, abusive/neglected situations, and owner release.

I've been fostering for GDLRR for about a year and a half now, and I've loved it. I been able to help about a dozen dogs avoid the shelters, and it's always super exciting to see them find their forever homes!

Success Stories

We adopted Dylan from GDLR 4 years ago and I can say, without a doubt, he is the best boy we have ever had!

The Brown Family

We visited your shelter not knowing that we would leave with a puppy (well, I knew but my fiancé needed a little persuading). She changed our lives and instantly brought us such joy, that we decided to return to save her baby brother, Jackson. Nothing can compare to the unconditional love you will receive from a rescue animal.

The Gibbs Family & Missy... and also Jackson

This is our beloved Miro, adopted from Adoptable just six weeks ago. With the support of your lovely foster carers and now with a permanent home she has come out of her shell and absolutely adores her new life. Frank and I are so thankful you saved her and the stars aligned so we could welcome her into our family.
