Labs in Need from Individuals

Last updated December 5, 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

Ruby: 3 year old female lab mix

Ruby is a three-year-old black lab mixed who was rescued from a shelter on the day she was scheduled to be PTS. Our other dog, a Shepherd mix, has recently developed dominance/aggression issues, and, unfortunately, Ruby has been injured several times as a result. For her safety, we have decided to rehome Ruby while we seek training and therapy for our Shepherd.

Ruby is a high-energy dog who loves off-leash hikes, dog parks, and car rides. When she is inside, she loves to “bury” treats and toys in the couch cushions and sleep at your feet or next to you on the couch. She is fine with other dogs and indifferent to cats. We don’t recommend that she be in a home with small children as she has a powerful tail and tends to knock little ones over when it wags (we call it the propeller tail).

Ruby has had basic training and knows how to sit, stay, lay down, go out etc. She is house trained and sleeps in a crate at night. All of her shots are up-to-date, and she is fixed.

We live in Bakersfield and are willing to transport her to her new home. Please email or call/text Becky at (661)619-9854

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.

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.
