Lab Lovers Rescue (formerly known as Rudys Rescue) is a Rochester, NY based, not-for-profit organization with 501 (c)(3) status. We are registered with NYS DAM #138 and comply with all laws. The mission of Lab Lovers Rescue is to help find homes for Labrador Retrievers in need. We operate with 100% volunteers who hold many different jobs in "real" life. Many of us have experience with other rescue groups and have chosen to support Labrador Retrievers - the most popular breed in the United States.
We have NO physical location. All dogs are housed in private foster homes. We adopt exclusively to those living within 40 miles of Rochester, NY, no exceptions. Our process requires pre-approval, involving a home visit, vet reference (where applicable), and reference checks. Adopters must take dogs to obedience classes, and there will be an in-home post-adoption visit.
Adopters must reside with 40 miles of Rochester, NY.
