Thank you for your interest in adopting a lab! We have wonderful labs and rescue more every day.

  • Our adoption process starts with submitting an Adoption Application. We adopt dogs to homes in San Diego County, Orange County, Riverside County west of Indio, and select ares of the Inland Empire. If you live outside these areas, please contact your locally based Labrador rescue organization for further assistance.

  • Once you submit an application, please visit our Adoption Donation page to submit your application fee. You may also remit payment via check to:
    P.O. Box 1830, La Mesa, CA 91944

  • You will be contacted by a Labrador Rescuers Volunteer to review your application and schedule a homevisit. This is where an adoption representative will visit you at home to help determine what type of dog would work well for your family. We try to schedule homevisits within a week of applying.

  • Once you are Approved to Adopt your new 4 legged friend, an Adoption Representative will assist you by guiding you to the dogs that are best matched with you and your family. You can then meet the dogs in our Foster Family homes, at our Boarding Facilities located throughout the county or by attending one of our amazing Adoption Events (details at to meet several dogs at once.

  • Your Labrador finds you! Once the adoption paperwork and the donation/fee are submitted, you can Welcome your New Dog to their Forever Home!

We carefully match each dog to the right family based on the needs of each, so we don't reserve dogs or adopt dogs on a "first served" basis. Instead, we work to ensure that when our dogs find their forever family this time, that it is a perfect match for them. This means that our dogs and families find happier endings, like Linus did!

After applying please let us know if you have questions at

You will need to consider each of the following words and how it relates to having a dog in your life.
You will need to be able to provide:

Food, Water, Shelter, Affection, Love, Training, Medical Care, Love, Exercise, Play, Patience and Love to your new friend

In return they will provide unconditional love and affection for the rest of their lives!
