Focusing on quality Labrador Retriever adoptions over quantity…
Lab Lovers Rescue is a not-for-profit volunteer dog rescue organization serving Rochester, NY and surrounding areas. Our focus is on Labrador Retrievers, however we will help with other breeds and animals when space allows.
We are dedicated to rescuing Labs left homeless for whatever reason. Following a comprehensive adoption process we place dogs in loving, caring homes. This process includes taking considerable care to find quality matches versus the quantity of adoptions. This can mean that a dog can be in our care for some time. While we won’t euthanize a dog due to space issues, this means that we cannot take in every dog that needs help. We assist dogs in distress without regard to age or ease of placement.
Animals in our care receive all appropriate veterinary care and treatment, and are placed in nurturing foster homes while they await placement in their permanent homes. We do not have a permanent shelter and we rely on our foster families, online resources and adoption events and meet and greets. As such, since the foster homes are the backbone of our organization it is our goal to provide them with the best experience possible.
We believe every animal deserves to be loved. Our ultimate goal is to see the day when our services are no longer needed.
• Rescue dogs of good temperament and find them new homes
• Cooperate and assist with other rescues, shelters and animal control
• Educate the public about the 'good' ways to obtain a companion animal
• Assist with common questions and referrals
Lab Lovers Rescue will also assist and hopefully contribute to the growing interconnection between rescue groups, shelters and others working with homeless animals. We will publish contact information for rescues and shelters in our area.
We strive to convince the public to consider adoption first. If that is not possible, we encourage the public to obtain a puppy or older dog from a responsible/reputable breeder. We work with the public to stress the importance of spay/neuter programs and do not allow any pets to leave our rescue without first being spayed/neutered.
We have plans to builds a home where our adopted animals can return for a short vacation, grooming or hike on the trails. Currently, we work out of our own homes. Lab Lovers Rescue is a New York state not for profit corporation.
