Labrador Rescue Inc. is a not-for-profit organisation and is run by volunteers who donate their time and open their homes to our rescues.
The group is located around the Yass region of New South Wales, with volunteers located in Canberra and surrounding districts.
Where do the dogs come from?
The labradors we rescue come mostly from the pound. We save dogs from pounds in our region, and where necessary from further afield. These dogs would otherwise be put down without ever getting their second chance at life.
We also take in animals that are surrendered directly to us. This however, only happens in special circumstances when all other alternatives in finding the dog a new home have been exhausted.
Do you save them all?
While we would like to save them all, we are restricted by the number of foster homes and carers we have available to us. It is only through the generosity of our foster carers that we have these safe houses.
We only take animals that are suitable for rehoming. The dog must be sociable and display a good temperament. In this regard you can take comfort that our dogs are road-tested and there won't be any nasty surprises.
Please go to the website http://www.rescuealabrador.com/
to submit an adoption application. Please click on the adopt a dog link on the left hand side of the screen and complete the questions if you are interested in adopting aLabrador.
We will not discuss specific dogs with you until you have completed this questionnaire as this allows us to establish which dogs are potential matches for your lifestyle.
Once we have found a suitable match to your family, we will allow you to contact the appropriate foster carer who will discuss the dog in more detail with you.
Once you are both satisfied that this is a good match you will be able to meet the Lab. If all goes well, you will be able to take the dog on a 2 week trial. You will complete the adoption paperwork and pay the adoption fee at this stage.
At the end of the 2 week trial you will be able to adopt the Lab and we will submit the microchip transfer to the council.
