Meet Our Labs

We typically have between 5-10 Labs available for adoption.
Click on the photos in their galleries to enlarge!
All potential adopters must be pre-approved before they are able to adopt.
Please visit the adoption process page for more information on how to adopt.

 Applications are Temporarily Closed:

Over the last few months we, along with other shelters and rescues, have seen an overwhelming interest in adopting dogs. This is absolutely amazing considering there are so many dogs in need of adoption! However, we have a limited number of dogs available for adoption and a long list of applicants who have already been approved to adopt. As a result, we are putting a temporary hold on accepting new adoption applications at this time. We are sorry to make potential adopters sad, but please know having more adopters than dogs available is the absolute best type of challenge to have! 


In the meantime, we'll continue to showcase our incoming dogs on our website, fb and IG so already approved adopters can see them and notify their Adoption Coordinator of their interest. We also love sharing them so you can follow along and celebrate with us the joy of rescuing Labs in need and finding them their new forever home!  

Please check back regularly for updates as we hope to reopen the application process as soon as possible! Stay safe and healthy!

We are accepting applications for our special needs dogs. These dogs have a light blue tag next to their picture.

Meet Jack!

Hello party people, my name is Jack and I am a dream come true! I am a five year old beautiful black lab and I absolutely love humans - all kinds. They are so fun and like to play lots of fun games! Like any normal lab, I am very busy and tend to get myself into trouble with my curiosity - especially when it comes to chewing things...what can I say, I get bored easily! I really like to be outside but have a hard time staying focused, there is just so much to do and I want to do it all at the same time!! I am so smart and very eager to learn. Food is my favorite thing in the world and has helped me master “sit, down, come, stay, wait, off, leave it, gentle, easy” and I walk well on leash using my fancy martingale collar. I love car rides and make a great travel partner. One of the highlights of my day is meeting new people. Like I said before, I love ALL people - they give me love and pets and I am all about that. I like lady doggos a lot but I’m not a big fan of boy doggos. I want to be the only boy doggo in your life! I don’t mind entertaining myself and love kibble dispensing/food toys like stuffed kongs as well as squeaky toys. Foster mom says I have to be “supervised’ while chewing apart my squeaky friends. I am a complete gentleman inside of the house and prefer my crate over furniture - it is my go to place. I can’t wait to meet you!!

Hello all, we are radiant Roxy Ann and adorable Abbie! We are a mother/daughter bonded pair who are looking for a loving home!

My name is Roxy Ann and I am a beautiful chocolate,100 lbs, 11 year old girl. My gorgeous daughter is named Abbie and is yellow as the sun and is only 8 years old and weighs 90 lbs. We are both purebred and as loving as can be. We love kids, dogs, and cats! We love everyone! We like following our foster parents all over the house and sitting with them on the sofa or sleeping in their room, though sometimes, Abbie does sit on their lap! When we snuggle, we love to be petted and if you dare stop the petting, we will gently nudge you just so you continue. We are looking for a family that will love us and relax along with us. We love meeting older dogs like us and children.

We both know our names and I am sure that you can teach us old dogs some new tricks! Our foster mom said that if you open up a dictionary and looked at the word sweet, you would find a picture of us. We are the sweetest dogs you will ever find. Our favorite things in life are our people, snuggling, our people, each other, our people and treats!! We are looking for a forever family or for a foster to adopt family.

Meet Hallie!

Hello there folks! My name is Hallie and I am America’s Sweetheart! I am a beautiful red/gold, 7 year old, 74lbs, female lab and I come as sweet as can be! I love being around my humans and their kids, I love it even more if they have a ball with them! I could easily be the poster child for a retriever dog. You have a ball to throw? I have the legs to run and bring it back! We could play this game for a while! Have a squeaky toy? I am up for them too! I am a very smart lady who knows a few commands like “sit, down, bed, outside”. I bet I could learn some more very quickly. During walks, I will sniff all around me but I know that I have to walk next to you so I make an amazing walking partner. I am a very brave girl, I am not scared of anything at all, thunderstorms, construction sites, nothing gets to me. Not even vet appointments. I am on insulin twice a day for diabetes but you would never guess I had that if you met me!

I am a wiggler when I get excited! Show me food, I will wiggle, get me ready to go outside, I will wiggle! I am just a happy lady! I have my doggie pillow that I love and if you tell me to go to bed, I will find my pillow and just chill on it, no matter what is going on around me! I will listen to my commands. I’m looking for a family who will love me and whom I can love back!

Meet Cooper!

Hello fellas, my name is Cooper and I am an 8 year old, male, yellow lab weighing in at 100 lbs. Yes, I am a big boy but I am trying to get in shape! Maybe you can help me! I am looking for a special adult family who will enjoy short walks and then snuggles. I enjoy the indoors where I can be away from little bugs! Once at home, I enjoy being pampered! I love baths, being brushed and getting my beautiful hair blow dried. I’m so smart that my foster mom thinks I can tell time, since I can alert her for when it’s time to feed me or go on a walk. I enjoy the company of other dogs and taking walks through the neighborhood and going on car rides. I am looking for a family with no children or children that would visit, a family that will give me pets, snuggle with me and enjoy my company.

Meet Waffles!

Heya friends, my name is Waffles and I am waffle-y cute - wouldn’t you say?! I am two years old and I absolutely love everyone I meet, especially the tiny humans. I have a very special place in my heart for the tiny humans and snuggle up with my small foster human every night.I was found as a stray and likely hit by a car 6-8 weeks ago. I'm recuperating and will soon have the FHO surgery I need to feel better! Despite my injuries I’m a happy go lucky girl who loves soaking up the attention. I am fun, playful and wiggley! I adore pets and being talked to - warning, if you stop, I am going to paw you until you start again. I am just so grateful to be in a home full of love and my foster mom says you can tell how much I appreciate it. At my foster mom’s house, I live with two dogs who are very nice and older than I am. I absolutely LOVE to chew and will take any opportunity to snatch food dropped on the floor and promise to keep your floors very clean! I can play tug of war and fetch all day long if you let me. My foster mom says, “Overall, Waffles is a joy, she loves everyone she meets (dogs and people) and I think she would be a perfect family dog to grow up with littles ones.” I can’t wait to meet you!

Hello friends, my name is Kaya and I am the sweetest little thing. I am a one year old friendly pup to everyone I meet - dogs and kiddos alike!
