Labrador Retriever Rescue serves only Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont. Labs come into our program only from these states and may be adopted into homes only within this area.
The reason for this restriction is simple: Because we provide hands-on evaluation, care, and follow-up, we need to be within reasonable geographic range of our Labs.
For example, all adopters receive a home study to ensure proper placement. In addition, our Labs are fostered in natural family settings before they’re adopted to help with the evaluation and placement process. Finally, although it’s very rarely necessary, we will take back a Lab if the adoption doesn’t work out. For all of these reasons, we need our Labs and their adoptive homes to be within driving distance.
If you live outside of our service area, we recommend that you find a Lab rescue organization near you.
