Lab rescuers in San Diego is the most wonderful organization to adopt a dog in need. We filled out an application and they came to our home and did a thorough home inspection. They really care about their dog's welfare. After our approval, we adopted an 8 yr old female lab name Fiona from them. Fiona is our love and we absolutely adore her. Lab rescuers while in their care had Fiona's teeth polished, scaled and cleaned. They treated her bad ear infection and gave her all her shots. Their volunteer's are extremely dedicated and compassionate. This is an extremely organized and professional rescue. Please fill out an application and save a dog's life from this wonderful organization. I would like to send a special Heartfelt "Thank You" to fosters Suzette and Bill Brunner and Barb Marsh!
My fiancé and I were looking for a puppy to bring into our family that would get along with our 5 year old (17lb) dog. We sent our application in, and we're paired up with Sandie for our house visit. Sandie is incredibly kind, assessed our house for adoption and sat us down to talk about our wants and needs, and what to expect. Sandie was very helpful and understanding, and when she left, we were sure we were in good hands.
We checked back on the LR Available Adoptions page multiple times a day, until we saw our perfect pup pop up. We emailed Sandie, who then reached out to the foster, who then called us and set up a meet and greet. We saw, met, and took our perfect pup home all within the same day! Now he is is sleeping soundly after lots of playing with his new brother. We couldn't be happier with the help and support LR offered us! We can't recommend them enough for anyone looking for a new addition to the family.
my experience was one of complete satisfaction.they are a pawsome organization who truly care about the animials well being and placement to loving careing homes.i only wish I could do more for them.they deserve nothing but the best !
We adopted our new family member, Chester, in December 2016. Chester's foster family was extremely helpful with the background information they provided us. Lab Rescuers and the foster family's main concern is for the long term well being of all their animals. We are very happy to have passed the adoption process and welcome Chester to our family. Thank you to Bev and William ( the foster family) and to Lab Rescuers for our wonderful boy, Chester.
Labrador Rescuers of San Diego has come through for us again!! Last week we adopted our 2nd dog from them, a beautiful, female, purebred, Black Labrador, Sammie. She is 7 years old and just precious! Sammie is loving, full of energy, smart, and gentle with our children. We could not be more thrilled! From start to finish our experience with Labrador Rescuers was a breeze! The online application was easy to fill out. They clearly communicated when and where each adoption event would be held. Our home visit with Kristen R. was friendly and easy. Finally, Sammie’s foster parents, Sandy and Tom, were communicative, willing to answer questions, and wanted to make sure Sammie was the right fit for our home. She fit in the very first day with our 3 children and dog, Sally, 6, a Lab Mix. We had successfully adopted Sally from Lab Rescuers 6 years ago and were looking for a companion dog for her. We love this rescue group and can’t say enough about the lifesaving work they do. Please consider adopting a dog through this organization. If you can’t adopt a dog at this time, please donate to help save lives. Labrador Rescuers of SD will be our first stop to adopt in the future!

Great experience with Lab Rescuers! They assign a volunteer that comes to your house to ensure the dogs you meet are a good match for the living situation. In our case, Betina, responded to my emails day or night about dogs we either wanted to know more about or meet. We met dogs both at fosters' homes, our home and at a fundraiser event. We adopted a pup from Sandy and Tom who were nice enough to keep Jaxon for a few extra days after we adopted him so we could be off for several days when he first came home. There are a ton of people working behind the scenes to give these dogs the best possible chance for forever homes. Thanks for all you do Lab Rescuers!
I rescued a four year old Flat Coated Retriever from Lab Rescuers a month ago. I have the sweetest dog ever. When I found the dog I wanted to rescue on the website things moved quickly. I was extremely pleased with all aspects of the process, including having Lori come to visit me and spend time in the yard playing ball. The next week she moved in. I am so lucky to have her in my life.
I am a huge animal lover- and I have always given my pets the upmost care and love, unfortunately tragedy engulfed my family and all of my fur babies needed to find new homes. My big boy Zeus is a fantastic dog, and I wanted to make sure he went to a proper, loving home for him. I stumbled across this Labrador Rescuers. They graciously heard my story and plea to find my boy a loving home. They took him accordingly and he found a home unexpectedly fast! I was so thrilled that he now has found a family who will love him as I have, and enjoy him into his senior years.
Giving a family member up is always the worst feeling and I was comforted and pleased with the quality of care and communication between the rescue and myself :)
We need to realize it's not about trying to get money or pushing to make what you've put in back. It's about finding a loving home for your family member and not just giving them away. I would trust this rescue to find your pet an excellent home. And if I ever come to be in a position where we can bring a dog back into our home- I wouldn't hesitate checking here first to adopt :)
I was hoping to rescue a labrador, and this organization did a great job of helping me find a sweet, wonderful lab that is a great fit for my lifestyle. Within a few days of filling out an application, a volunteer came out for a friendly home visit and listened to what I was looking for in a dog. Then, she immediately contacted several foster families to see if their available labs would fit my situation. The foster families were detail oriented and honest about the dogs that would not be a good fit, and so when I did meet a lab that was well suited to my situation (within about a week of the home visit) it was great. I immediately fell in love with him, and I really appreciate the organization's efforts to make sure that this was a very successful adoption.
I cannot say enough good things about Labrador Rescuers! I had the benefit of working them previously while an intern at a veterinary hospital and knew I was getting into a good group. They were efficient in contacting me once my application had been approved and I had a wonderful visit by Angela who walked me through the entire process. They even didn't mind driving all the way to Temecula! I was then contacted by multiple fosters (I wasn't very picky in dogs) who were very informational in what I was to expect from each dog. Visits were quickly set up and then I was able to have a home visit from my top pick, the most handsome man, Zeke. This was incredibly important to me as I needed to make sure he got along with my roommates pug, Zoe. Sandy brought him up and was very convincing in describing how awesome of a dog he was. He did fabulously and soon I had myself a new furbaby! They were sure to check in regularly to see how things were going and were always there to answer any questions. I absolutely LOVED my experience with Labrador Rescuers and if I ever decide to adopt again, I'll be doing so through their organization.
As far as Zeke goes, he has settled in great and is the best cuddler a girl could ask for! While we are still working on leash training, he has done fabulously at the dog park and is a great hiking partner! He is the best man and I am so happy to have him!
