The best way to convince you of our success is by hearing stories of those successful matches first hand from the families themselves. We hope you enjoy reading them for as proud as we are to show them to you!


My husband and I already own a yellow lab Belle, she is 14 years old and we have had her since she was 6 weeks old. Our son has grown up with her and we decided that with her being a senior that it was time to think about having another dog in our family. That is when I came across Ellie on the LRROF website. I beautiful white coat young girl. I saw that the LRROF was going to be at our local Petsmart that weekend so we went to talk with them about her. Sad that she was not one of the dogs that was there we quickly jumped at getting our paperwork in as we were told she was popular. By the end of that week Ellie was ours. She has made herself extremely comfortable in her new home. Sleeping on the bed and couch all day, playing ball with our son and taking really long walks with my husband. She gets along great with Belle and she doesn't mind her either. Ellie is certainly full of life, trying to take anything off the kitchen if left there
and learning how to be more loving. She is happy in her new home as we are having her. We look forward to the years to come with her. Thank you LRROF for helping us with a perfect match for our family!

My husband wanted a larger dog and I knew how hyper labs can be so I was not sold on the idea until we saw this little black lab in the petsmart cart. She was calm and cuddly and for some reason I knew she would be a good dog for us and our cavalier king charles spaniel. She took a long while to come out of her she'll as she was scared of everything but now she is happy and healthy with all her fur again. Oh and super smart.

Thank you to all the volunteers at Lab Rescue for bringing Simon and Mya into our lives. We adopted Simon nine years ago, and Mya four years ago. We will never know why their previous owners did not want them, but are thankful they are a part of our lives now.

Sadly in March of 2013 we lost our beloved 13 year old black Lab Trooper. He was the best dog. We decided after a few weeks our house was lonely, and Trooper would want us to give a fellow Lab the chance of a forever home like he was blessed to have for 13 years. We put in our application to adopt with Lrrof and shortly after we were approved we got a call from Christina telling about a beautiful 15 month old male chocolate lab who's previous owners surrendered him to Animal Control for no other reason than they simply did not want him anymore.
