Labs in Need from Individuals

Last updated February 17, 2018 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

Mona: Chocolate Lab Mix, Female 3 Years Cat Friendly

MONA is a very sweet, affectionate and loving dog. At 3 years old she still has a lot of energy. She LOVES water! Don’t even think about watering the plants without her right there taking all the water. She does pull a little on the leash when on walks, but I know with a little training that could be resolved. Unfortunately we have to re-home Mona due to my son having severe asthma and it’s gotten to be too much having pets in the home. She would love to be with a family that has a big yard to run around in and plenty of time to spend with her. She is house trained and overall pretty mellow when the family is just relaxing around the house.

Buddy: Yellow Male, 10 Years Senior Cat Friendly

BUDDY is a 10 year old 58 lb. yellow male, still full of energy. He walks briskly on a leash and rides well in the car. He has good house manners and uses a doggie door. Buddy is tidy, sweet and friendly with other dogs. He gets along with cats and doesn't chase them when out on a walk. He has no sight in his right eye but that doesn’t bother him a bit...he's a ball fanatic and catches them in midair! He would do best with someone who is home a lot as he will whine when left alone. He is a great companion dog and would be perfect for a retired couple or stay at home mom!

Zephyr: 4 year old neutered male black Lab Mix

I am a handsome 4 1/2 year old black lab/german shepherd mix named Zephyr. I was found as a stray and am in need of a furever home. I weigh 60 pounds, am neutered and vaccinated. I am house trained, crate trained, know how to sit and shake with my paw. I am a friendly dog who loves spending time with adults. I would do best in an adult only home with no kids. I chase cats. I love hiking and swimming. I am very smart and love being trained. I would like an owner who is experienced with dogs and can spend a lot of time with me. I am in a foster home in San Carlos, CA.

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.
