Adoption Steps

STEP
1 

    

Applicants must read and agree to our Adoption Policies. Please be sure to read them thoroughly and understand them. Ask any questions you need to become comfortable. 

STEP
2

Please complete an online application. When your application is received and your $25 application fee is paid, you will be contacted by phone by an Adoption Counselor nearest to you. They will ask about your history with animals and your expectations of this dog. If this is your first Labrador, they will give you a good idea of what to expect.

STEP
3

A home visit will be scheduled. Your adoption counselor will have practical tips and suggestion about how to manage the feeding, airing and exercising of your new Labrador. This will include crate training, a requirement of adoption. LRRoF reserves the right to refuse to adopt a lab to any applicant.

STEP

Once approved to adopt, the counselor will tell you a little about the dogs we have available. If you find one that you like your Adoption Counselor with set up a time with the Foster Parent for you to visit the dog. Unless you have driven a great distance, you will be asked to wait a day to make your decision. The foster parent has final approval on any adoption. They know the dog's needs best.

STEP

When you find the right Lab for you, you will need to purchase your food, crate and supplies. Your Labrador's homecoming should be as happy and orderly as possible. You will complete a contract transferring ownership of the Lab from us to you, and your newest family member has arrived.
