           Chuck and Zeus   

I adopted Chuck from Lab Rescue about 2 years ago and recently got Zeus from there as well. They turned out to be 2 of the best dogs anyone could ask for. They are gorgeous and sweet as pie. I couldn't imagine life without them.

We knew our dog didn't have much longer to live. I wanted to be prepared to adopt when the time came. I had scheduled a home visit for a Monday. That time moved up when our girl died Thursday. I know some of you are thinking ... What's the rush? Well we had been looking on the website and had seen Kerry aka Annabelle. She was ready and was going to be at Petsmart on Saturday. Our home visit was moved to Saturday! We got the girl of our dreams. I would not hesitate to adopt again from Lab Rescue!

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 .


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!

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….
