Labs in Need from Individuals

Last updated May 3, 2016 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 ecdugdale@gmail.com 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





Bailey: young large female black Lab/Wirehair Pointer Mix, spayed and microchipped


Bailey is a lab mix seeking a quiet home in the country. While she likes doggie companions, she is very picky about them and does not appreciate loud, boisterous or pushy dogs. She lived with a wonderful man named Colin who took her to the beach, camping, and other outings. She enjoyed the good life; while Colin was at work she went to doggie day care. Sadly Colin had a change in circumstances and could no longer afford the weekly daycare and Bailey did not do well in his small apartment. Bailey was reluctantly returned. She is longing for a country property with large skies and an owner with a heart as big as Colin’s. She is good with some dogs, good with adults, and requires a yard.

To find out more about this lovely girl, Big Dog Rescue at 707-665-0332 or check out Bailey's profile at Big Dog Rescue.

Ruger: 4 year old chocolate male


For Adoption: Divorce/Moving Situation. Ruger has been in a foster home since 4-15-16.

Four-year-old purebred (registered) chocolate Labrador Retriever

Fully vetted: Neutered, microchipped, DHLPP/Rabies/Bordetella vaccines, heartworm negative, on heartworm and flea/tick prevention, dewormed.

He had bad flea dermatitis, but his fur is growing back very nicely (and quickly).

Crate trained and, so far, so good, no potty accidents in the house. He hasn’t been an indoor dog since puppyhood, so we’re re-learning house etiquette.

Very sweet and affectionate. Active. Very food motivated. Lived and/or been around kids from newborn on up but would prefer older children due to his level of exuberance.

Previous owner says he has always been good with people, other dogs, horses and cattle but not good with cats, rabbits, chickens (prey animals).

He loves car rides and does great in the car.

Adoption screening, contract, home safety check and donation apply.

Location is Wilton, CA (southeast Sacramento County).

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.
