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!


We rescued Diamond 10 years ago. We knew instantly he was the new family member after spending time with him at the Meet and Greet at Petco. We went through the process of adopting him and were very pleased with the home visit and application. LRROF truly has the best interest for the placement of these loving dogs. After some conversation we changed Diamonds name to Dallas which he took to quickly. Dallas was with us until last week. He was our best friend for 10 years and is truly missed. He was a true LAB and missed his calling as a Service Dog. Dallas amazed us everyday with his intelligence, patients and careful stride with my elderly grandmother and children. He loved to cuddle and sit next to you. We will adopt again from LRROF but need time to heal over the loss of our best friend.


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.
