Where can I adopt a Lucky Lab?
New England (NE)
Lucky Labs Are Vetted!
It is important to know the general health & personality of each dog, in order to have successful matches. Our goal is to place our Labs in homes where they stay... FURever! Lucky Labs are:
Vaccinated (with age appropriate vaccines)
Spayed/Neutered (If over 6 months)
Heartworm tested and if a dog is positive, treated for heartworm
If a dog is sick or needs surgery we get them fixed up
The personality, likes, and dislikes of each dog is observed prior to be listed for adoption of each dog is observed prior to be listed for adoption
Because Labs are more often euthanized at shelters! Sure, they're one of America's favorite breeds, but when people adopt a puppy and the dog starts to display that “Lab energy," chews up someone's shoes, or takes up too much time, they sometimes get dumped at a shelter. Some perfectly great dogs end up at shelters because their family moved, had a baby, got divorced, or someone lost their job. There are dozens of sad reasons wonderful pooches can be found at the pound.
Most Labs that come to Lucky Lab Rescue & Adoption were at risk of euthanasia, usually because the shelter they were in was overcrowded and the facility kills dogs to make room to take in more.
The most popular color of Labs are yellow & chocolate, and sometimes black Labs and Lab mixes are overlooked. Some shelters will automatically euthanize black Labs and mixes. Some Lab rescue organizations are guilty of not accepting black Labs and mixes. Lucky Lab Rescue & Adoption feels very committed to rescuing all Labs and mixes.
How can I help?
We currently adopt dogs to three regions in the United States: The Midwest, New England and Texas. Once you fill out an application you will hear back from one of our volunteers usually in 24-48 hours. We are an all volunteer crew, so please be patient. Once you are approved to adopt you will be assigned an adoption coordinator who will work with you to find a dog that is a good fit for your lifestyle and household.
Donations help pay for spaying, neutering, vaccinations, heartworm tests/treatments, microchipping, antibiotics, treatment of illnesses, emergency and orthopedic surgery.
Yes we charge an adoption fee, that helps pay the rescue back for what the nonprofit organization spent to vet a dog, but it rarely covers all the costs. If you've ever had a dog before you know those vet bills add up quickly! So do ours!
We rely on donations to sustain the rescue. 100% of your donations goes directly to the dogs.
We need FOSTERS in Texas and Indiana! Fosters provide food, water, shelter, love and transportation to vet appointments, adoption events, etc. We pay all the vet bills. Any costs you incur, like food, toys, etc. are all tax deductible for fosters since we're a 501c3, nonprofit organization.
We market the foster dogs for adoption, fosters don't have to bring dogs to events, we have amazing people applying each day to give a Lucky Lab a forever home! Just apply by clicking the "volunteer" tab below.
