Lu's Labs Labrador Retriever Rescue is an all-volunteer, organization, whose mission is to assist Labrador Retrievers, who are in need of shelter, food, and medical care with the ultimate goal of finding them permanent, loving homes.
Thank you for adopting, not shopping! If you are interested in learning more about one of our labs and potentially adopting, please visit our website and access our online application. All interested adopters must complete an adoption application and go through our approval process, which includes vet and personal reference checks, a phone interview, and a home check PRIOR to approval. Lu's Labs charges a $25 application fee. The application fee helps cover medical and transport fees of our rescue Labs and therefore is non-refundable.
We are experiencing a HIGH number of adoption applications at this time. Adoption applications will be processed as quickly as possible, but at this time we cannot guarantee a specific timeline on when your application will be assigned to an adoption coordinator. Please allow up to TWO MONTHS for your application to be assigned to an adoption coordinator.
NOTE: Applications are NOT for a specific dog. Once your application is approved, your adoption coordinator will work with you on the dogs available at that time.
Lu's Labs is an all-volunteer organization that exists as a network of fosters. We do not have or operate a shelter, nor do we ship or deliver dogs out of state to adopters. If you are interested in adoption, you must come to where the dog is being fostered to meet the dog. We adopt out within a 5 hour drive of the Washington, DC area. Our adopted dogs are to be returned to Lu's Labs if their adopter is EVER unable to continue to care for them.
