Labs and More is Southern California’s fastest growing and most active Rescue with over 250 dogs in our care at any given time. Even though we are growing and strong we remind our adopting families that we are a Non Profit - Grassroots - Volunteer run Organization. We adopt to patient, kind and respectful families who understand we are Volunteers. Matching families with appropriate dogs is our priority and we do not operate by first come first adopt. This year our Volunteers will celebrate the rescue of our 10,000th Dog in need of a chance at LIFE! We rescue for need not for breed and search out those who without our help have no chance of getting adopted from shelters. This year alone over 300 dogs in our care will get needed surgery, life-saving treatment, or other major medical care. We take in hundreds of pregnant moms who will be able to deliver their puppies in the safety of a home and loving arms. All our dogs and puppies are spayed or neutered prior to being adopted.
We cannot save them all but we will save all we can with the help of the generous support of people like YOU!
You are just 4 paws away from your new best friend!
We are honored that you have selected us to help you find your new DOG.
Click the "Adoption Application" link on the right sidebar and tell us about you and your family, what it is you are looking for in a dog, and what you in return will provide for your Dog. Once we receive your application, an Adoptions Volunteer Counselor will contact you to review your information. To speed up the process, you can send us photos of your yard and home where the dog will be during the day and at night. You can expect to hear from us to get you approved to adopt. Our goal is to help you with information and to get you ready for a new dog!
You are approved to adopt! This next process is where we work together as a team to guide you toward meeting dogs that who come closest to meeting some of your requirements. This process can take time so we ask that you be patient and understand this needs to be a match for both YOU and YOUR new dog! Please understand that sometimes a dog just might not be right for You.
You have met several dogs and feel you have found your forever friend. We will review your request with the foster family, and if they believe the adoption is right for the foster dog they will let you know. Our goal is to not operate by first-come, first-served but to do what is best for the dogs.
Signing the paperwork and making the adoption donation is the beginning of your journey with your new Dog. You can count on 100% of your adoption donation going to help save one more dog. It costs much more than the adoption donation to save one dog. Have fun getting new stuff for your new dog! Your adoption counselor and/or foster family will be in contact with you several times after the adoption to ensure all is going well. Promising to care and provide for your dog is the gift you can give to the many volunteers who leave this dog in your hands and are trusting you to give them the BEST.
