Before Giving Up Your Lab

Before you surrender your Lab to LRR or any other organization, please consider the following information.

Have You Contacted Your Lab’s Breeder?

Responsible breeders usually have a take-back clause in their contract, which means they will take back dogs they have bred for the lifetime of the Lab. Many breeders have waiting lists of people looking for an older Lab of their breeding. If your dog came from a breeder, please honor your contract by calling the breeder before placing your Lab in rescue.

LRR Can Help

If returning your Lab to his or her breeder is not an option for you, LRR has carefully screened homes waiting to adopt a purebred Lab. Read our Surrender Process to see how we find loving homes for the Labs in our care.
