Labs in Need from Individuals

Last updated October 27, 2014 Other labs in rescues and shelters

Whenever possible, GGLRR will post Labs for individuals who must find a new home for their pet. Dogs on this page have not been met and evaluated by GGLRR and are not part of our program. We only provide this listing service as a courtesy for a month to Northern / Central California Labs and assume no responsibilities for the dogs posted on this page. Please contact if you have a dog you would like us to post on this page and provide the posting as you would like it to appear on the page.. Please note since we are a Lab Rescue, we only list Labrador Retrievers or Lab-mixes that appear to be mostly Labrador.

We welcome donations from those who benefit from our maintenance of this web page.

We encourage you to check PetFinder or Adopt a Pet for labs that may be available from other rescue organizations. For additional dogs in need of new homes, please search:

Labs and Lab Mixes Available from Others

Elga: 4 year old female lab / shepherd mix

We are cross posting Elga for Golden State German Shepherd Rescue as her personality is more of that of a lab than of a German Shepherd. For more information about Elga, please go to the Golden Gate German Shepherd Rescue website.

Macho came to our shelter as his owner had died and there was no one to care for him. He was living with 10 other dogs at the time. Macho is about 9 years old, but still has much spunk and love left in him. He loves to chase tennis balls, carry a stuffed toy around in his mouth (his gaga), and sit close to you for some much needed lovin. We are not sure what he is mixed with, but his disposition is much like a lab. He weighs about 35lbs. Age is just a number to Macho. He is always ready to head out for his daily walks, stopping to say hi to everyone he passes. He will play ball with you , and will finish the day with a nap with you. Macho has been living in our shelter since May. The stress of a shelter takes its toll on dogs, especially the senior ones. Macho is looking for his forever companion to spend the rest of his life with. Senior dogs are usually the last to get adopted. They get looked over time and time again, leaving them to live out their lives in shelters. Macho definitely deserves a home where his love will be welcomed and ask for nothing in return but the same love. Macho is located at Pets Lifeline in Sonoma. For more information about Macho, please call Pets Lifeline at 707-996-4577 ext. 101.

We Need Your Help!

Even with all our volunteers, it costs a lot to save and place 300 Labs a year. There are costs to bail-out these dogs from the shelters along with vet and temporary kennelling costs when no foster homes are available. Please consider a donation of cash, vehicle, or even your time through volunteering.
