"A dog may be the only opportunity a human has to choose a relative." - Mordecai Siegal  


Dogs Available for Adoption

We are desperately in need of foster homes! Could you foster a Lab? Would you like to "try" one of our labs and see how it works out for you and the dog? Fostering is the perfect way to do so! Email Linda or Betsy if you're interested in fostering a lab.

PLEASE NOTE: We *absolutely must* have your completed adoption application before we can make an appointment for you to meet one of our rescue dogs. Please be sure to note which dog(s) you are interested in on your application. 

PLEASE BE PATIENT: We are returning emails and phone calls as quickly as we can. We are all volunteers and have regular jobs and lives in addition to our Lab Rescue work. If you call and ask that we return your call, and you are calling long distance, we would appreciate it if you would give us permission in your phone message to call you back *collect* - or - allow us to return your call, then you call us right back. The less long distance phone charges we have, the more money we will have available to spend directly on our rescue dogs.


Please make sure you have an approved application before setting a time to meet our dogs.

Dolly (one on right)

This is Dolly. She is a 6-7 year-old female Lab mix. Dolly's guardian recently passed away and her extended family reached out to Lab Rescue to help find her another loving home. Though Dolly is a Lab mix, she is extremely sweet, kind and gentle. Her faithful companion, Sam, has been with her for most of her life and he is also available for adoption. Dolly is trained to a doggy door and an invisible fence. Dolly loves to ride in the car, she is good with other dogs and children, and she knows some basic commands. Dolly is not crate-trained because she has not needed to be crates. She enjoys free roam of her home and her only bad habit is being a complete couch potato. It isn't known if she likes to swim and she has no interest in fetching, so if you are looking for a calm and quiet companion, Dolly may be the one for you.

Dolly weighs almost 80 pounds. Yes, she's a bit pudgy so her foster mom is helping her slim down. She is doing very well in her foster home with other dogs and a cat. Dolly has a lot of gray on her face, but it's misleading. Dolly is playful but obedient. She is a very easy dog to have around and simply loves to snuggle. She is fiercely loyal and loving. If her description sounds a lot like Sam's, it's because these two companions are similar in many ways. They have, after all, been constant companions for at least six years.

Dolly is spayed, microchipped, and current on her vaccines and heartworm preventive. She is ready to go to a stable and steadfast home. Dolly is accustomed to having Sam around and may be better suited to a family with another dog. She is also fine in a home with cats. Dolly is one of the sweetest, calmest dogs we have rescued in a long time. Please consider giving this extraordinary creature the love and affection she certainly deserves. You will receive it in return ten-fold. :)

Her adoption fee is $150.00. If you are interested in learning more about Dolly or Sam, please send an
adoption application to lab.rescue@earthlink.net or call 865-206- 2091 (no text messages).

Sam and Dolly are available for adoption separately or together.

Sam

This is Sam. He is a 5-6 year-old male Lab mix. Sam’s guardian recently passed away and his extended family reached out to Lab Rescue to help find him another loving home. Though Sam is a Lab mix, he is extremely sweet, kind and gentle. His faithful companion, Dolly, has been with him his whole life and she is also available for adoption. Sam is trained to a doggy door and an invisible fence. He loves to ride in the car, he is good with other dogs and children, and he knows some basic commands. Sam is not crate-trained because he has not needed to be crated. He enjoys free roam of his home and his only bad habit is being a complete couch potato. It isn’t known if he likes to swim and he has no interest in fetching, so if you are looking for a calm and quiet companion, Sam may be the one for you.

Sam is a little shy and takes a short time to trust humans, but once he does (and it does not take long), he is fiercely loyal and loving. And once that trust kicks in, he thinks he’s a lap dog. He weighs 62 pounds and is a tall, handsome boy with a precious soul. If his description sounds a lot like Dolly’s, it’s because these two companions are similar in many ways. They have, after all, been constant companions for at least six years.

Sam is neutered, microchipped, and current on his vaccines and heartworm preventive. He is ready to go to a stable and steadfast home. Sam is accustomed to having Dolly around and may be better suited to a family with another dog. He has expressed curiosity toward cats, but not aggression. Sam is one of the sweetest, calmest dogs we have rescued in a long time. Please consider giving this extraordinary creature the love and affection he certainly deserves. You will get it in return ten-fold. :)

His adoption fee is $150.00. If you are interested in learning more about Sam or Dolly, please send an adoption application to lab.rescue@earthlink.net or call 865-206-2091 (no text messages).

Sam and Dolly are available for adoption separately or together.

 

More Available Companions

Due to our extreme and ongoing need for more foster homes, we have been unable to save the many wonderful Labbies in local shelters. These sweethearts are hoping to be adopted before their time runs out. Lab Rescue is posting these dogs as referral only. We have not met or screened these dogs and they will not be re-homed through our organization. Please consider them when deciding to add a canine companion to your family.
