Labrador Retreiver Rescue of Florida (LRRoF) is a non-profit organization dedicated to placing Labrador Retrievers in loving permanent homes.

Our nonprofit organization is comprised of hardworking volunteers and vets that are committed to placing labs in new homes. We have been working together since 2000 and have rescued over 5000 dogs. LRRoF, Inc. provides foster care, veterinary care (including spaying/neutering and microchips) for the Labradors in our adoption program.

Our goal is to place our Labradors with loving families in safe, permanent homes. Prior to an adoption, we consider the history, temperament, personality, and energy level of the rescued Labrador. The placement process includes a written application and a home visit of the potential adopter. LRRoF, Inc. is committed to making a lifelong match for of all our adopted Labradors.

When 38 pound Declan, a 1-2 year old chocolate Lab, was pulled from his backyard, it appeared that he was on his way to the Rainbow Bridge.  His sister was barely hanging on, and mom lasted just a few days before she crossed over.  The shelter immediately began searching for foster care, but the weak siblings contracted a severe strain of kennel cough, which made their struggle just that much more difficult.
While Declan was under anesthesia, a thorough exam revealed that at some point in his young life, Declan also battled distemper.  The enamel on his teeth is malformed and he sees only large shadows, a consequence of neurological damage due to the distemper.
Despite all of this, Declan has maintained a sunny, upbeat personality.  As you can see by his second picture, he's gained back all of his weight and he is a love bug.  He is looking for a special home, for someone who doesn't need a perfect dog, but can appreciate a loving soul. He is still learning how to play and the trainer says that he is highly trainable.  Please don't forget about this special boy when considering dogs for adoption.

Success Stories



Roughly 14 years ago I adopted Logan from your rescue. He must have been one of the first dogs part of the organization. My sweet boy was born in May 2000 and just passed away.
He was the best dog ever- he joined us in 6 moves and helped welcome two beautiful daughters into this world. I remember like yesterday the day the foster mom showed up at our house with three labs, Logan was one of them. They ran around my backyard like crazy and then Logan came inside on the tile and did his superman lay down. In that instance I knew I needed him as much as he needed me. His foster mom shared that he was in two homes prior and was abused; he was terrible thin and had skin coat infection from the stress of his previous life. Logan never chewed a shoe, turn anything up and rarely had accidents in the house. He was a member of family who enjoyed the comforts of sleeping in bed with us, lounging on the couch. He favorites things to do was "bomb" people while swimming in the pool and playing frisbee in the lake.
I am so lucky to have enjoyed his companionship for as many years as I did and blessed to have found your organization that introduced us.
