3 Labrador Retriever Rescues and Their Goal

The Labrador retriever has been one of the most popular dog breeds throughout the world for many, many years now. Regarded as one of the most even temperament, intelligent, and adorable breeds out there, there's a lot to love about a lab. Labs were originally bread as working dogs, retrieving game for hunters in the fields and in water. Today, the Labrador is very much a household pet. While there are many individuals who still use the pup's retriever sense to help them hunt, for the most part these dogs are just part of the family. While it's easy to see why the Labrador is such a well-loved and popular breed, there are some downsides to being the most popular breed around. Labrador's have been overbred across the nation because of how popular they are. This leaves many a lab without a proper home and in need of help. There are numerous Labrador rescues across the country, working hard to find safe and loving home for any Labrador in need.

Luvin' Labs:

This lab rescue organization provides support for Labradors in New Mexico and surrounding areas. Luvin' Labs works with local shelters and other dog rescue organizations throughout the region to find homes for any lab pups in need. There are a number of foster volunteers throughout the state who work to provide temporary homes for the labs and help nurture behavior in the dogs that will help them find their "forever homes". It is through organizations like this one, that Labradors who are abandoned, stray, injured, or lost can find shelter, care, and love outside of the busy and overcrowded shelters. Luvin' Labs provides detailed descriptions of the dogs they have in foster homes and available for adoption. Without rescue organizations like this one, many of the older or injured labs that are living in foster homes would have been put to sleep in shelters. While Luvin' Labs run out of New Mexico, they do work with surrounding lab rescues to help find the labs their best and most deserving homes.

Labrador Retriever Rescue:

This lab rescue serves Labradors in need in the Washington D.C. area. As a federally recognized nonprofit organization, LRR accepts donations to help with the care and protection of labs and that donation is tax-deductible. LRR takes special care of their rescue dogs, refusing to take the dogs to public adoption events in hopes of matching their labs with families more carefully. They take the time to thoroughly evaluate both the Labs that they care for and the potential owners. They want to be sure to find a home that can support their Labs both physically and emotionally and they want the Lab to be able to do the same for their new home. Their goal is to provide a clear and honest evaluation of their various dogs, so that potential adopters can find the exact fit for their household. The Labs that LRR homes come from animal shelters, humane society organizations, and from owners who are no longer able to care for their dogs. This organization provides a lot of wonderful and useful information on the Labrador breed in particular and about Lab rescue missions across the country.

Labrador Education and Rescue Network:

The Labrador Education and Rescue Network (LEARN) is a volunteer nonprofit organization placing Labradors in new homes throughout Illinois and Wisconsin. While this organization provide much the same care and service that the others do around the country, LEARN has also established itself as a wonderful resource for dog owners and enthusiasts. The organization provides numerous articles and information, concerning training, behavior, illnesses, dog food choices, car safety, and much more. These resources are extremely useful for any pet owner and are specifically geared towards assisting Lab owners. LEARN helps find Labs the home that will best suit them and helps to educate the owners about how to properly care for a rescue dog. There are many things about rescue dogs that differ from caring for other dogs. This network helps you find important information and guidance when looking after a Lab.

Hello Mam,

I sent you an email regarding to Labrador inquiries a few weeks ago. I was wondering if you had already read it.

Subject is Labrador Inquiries.

Hello Ben. I'm not sure if we received it or not. We received so many e-mail daily, it's hard to keep track. As for questions sent in, we can only answer so many. Not all questions get answered. If you want to send it again, please do so. As much as I would like to guarantee a response, it's impossible for me to handle all the questions sent in.
