Once rescued, Lucky Labs are immediately:

vetted with vaccinations, spayed or neutered, heart-worm tested & wormed for internal parasites, temperament tested and covered
with complete veterinary care before being adopted.

Our goal is to place our Labs in forever homes. It’s important to know the general health & personality of each dog, as we want to match potential adopters with dogs that would be the most successful fit.

Lucky Labs can be adopted in 3 regions...


Each dog is given an abbreviated region-tag. Region-tags can be found in each dog profile. You can search by
region-tag or hover your cursor over each doggie thumbnail to display availability, too!

What you can do:

We need fosters and volunteers mainly in Indiana and Texas. Volunteers offer to give dogs rides, bring them
to vet-appointments or adoption-events. They also provide food, water, shelter and love. We pay for
vet-bills & any costs you incur (food, toys, etc.), which are all tax deductible since we are a 501c3 organization.

Adopters pay adoption fees which cover some costs, but not all. 100% of your donations goes straight to the dogs, which helps pay for spaying/neutering, vaccinations, heart-worm tests/treatments, microchipping and sometimes emergency surgery.

Don't be shy. Say hi!

Contact us if you have any questions :)

Why Labs & Lab mixes?

Because Labs — amongst other breeds — are more often euthanized at shelters! It’s hard to imagine, but sometimes people adopt a cute lab puppy and when the dog displays “lab energy”, it gets turned into a shelter. Most labs that come to Lucky Lab Rescue were most at risk of euthanasia, usually due to overcrowded shelters.   

The most popular color of Labs are the yellow and chocolate and tend to get adopted more often than black labs. Some shelters will automatically euthanize black labs and some rescue organizations will accept the yellow and chocolate over the black lab. We at Lucky Labs love our yellows and chocolates, but also feel very committed to rescuing black Labs due to their plight, as they are often overlooked in favor of lighter-colored dogs.
