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 had lost our senior Chocolate Lab Monte and, even though we still had our 3-mutt pack, there was still something missing. We saw Handsome (aka Buddy) on the LRROF site and decided that we HAD to meet him. After the application and inspection, we drove to his foster's home for a "visit". As soon as we were inside, this big GALOOT of a dog came up and started smothering us with kisses. We knew immediately that we were meant to be his "forever home" parents. We drove home, introduced him to the others, and he fit in like he'd known us his whole life. He has the sweetest disposition, loves the other dogs, and is the world's biggest snuggler. Thanks for finding us this AWESOME BOY!

We adopted Charlie shortly after our chocolate lab passed away. Our black Lab Molly was missing her and so we decided to get another dog. I can't say enough about Charlie. He and Molly bonded imediatly. He had seperation anxiety when we got him. But we worked with him and he become the best dog ever. He was gentle, loving, funny, playful. He filled our hearts with much love and joy! Charlie passed away this January. He had cancer. Way to early he was only 7yrs old. It has been 10 months since he passed and it's still very painful to talk about him. I can't thank Pat enough for fostering him and allowing him to come into our lives. We have since rescued another dog. She is a chocolate lab/pit. She is helping to fill the void in our heart. But we miss our "Bubbie" (his nickname) everyday. Thanks again LRROF .


Lab Rescue was easy to work with and Brogan's foster family were very informative and looked out for his best interest. Everyone made looking for a dog exciting and fun. Brogan saved us! When we adopted Brogan we knew our 2 older labs would be taking a walk across the rainbow bridge in years to come. We wanted a young dog in our life who knew and loved them as much as we did. One who could have their picture taken with our older dogs and keep their memory fresh. Brogan filled their hearts and it was like the three of them had always been together. They played, swam, slept together and shared many happy times. We our 11.5 year old female left us. Brogan was there to love us and became closer to the leader of the pack. We introduced a puppy to the teamof two and they fell in love with her. Several months later after the leader Ace taught the puppy all his leadership skills he left us. Brogan now had a puppy to himself and the two of us who
were so thankful he needed us. He is very loving and when he looks us in the eyes, they seem to say do you love me? Of course we do 4 ever and 4 always!!!!


I had fostered several dogs for LRRoF. Everyone I dealt with with the organization is in it for all the right reasons. It's amazing how many dogs need a home.
Our circumstances changed to where we could permanently adopt a dog of our own. Enter Max, nee Brownie. He is a gorgeous chocolate boy who has changed our lives for the better. He was just over a year old when we started fostering him. He had been placed with a dog trainer who volunteered her time and services. He was a typical crazy lab puppy. He had spent most of the first year of his life crated nearly 24/7. He has made himself comfortable on the sofa and should soon start receiving mail at the house….

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.
