"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.


Featured Pet!

Amber

Amber is a 2-3-year-old spayed female black Lab mix. She weighs about 55 lbs. She was found wandering and pregnant. She gave birth to 8 precious pups on November 24, 2015. Her pups all have wonderful homes, but now Mama needs a forever home. Amber is heartworm positive. She has begun treatment and will continue until she tests negative. Amber is up to date on her vaccinations, spayed, and microchipped. She is very friendly and loves to be with people. She is housebroken, walks well on a leash, and she is crate trained. She is a dominant female, so she does have issues with other dogs and seems to not like male dogs. So, she should probably be in a home as an only dog. More pictures of her are available in the Rescue Litter album at www.Facebook.com/sugarloaflabradors.

If you are interested in giving Amber a loving, steadfast home, please send your adoption application to Betsy at lab.rescue@earthlink.net or call her at 865-206-2091 (after 6:00 PM). Amber’s adoption fee is $200.00 and covers her complete vetting costs.
Please make sure you have an approved application before setting a time to meet our dogs.

Hank
Adoption Pending!

My name is Hank! I’m a handsome 8-month-old male chocolate Lab mix. I weigh about 40-50 pounds and I have white paws and a white blaze on my chest. I know I’m not a purebred Lab, but I’m just as special as any papered pedigree! I am housebroken, I like to ride in cars, I love water, I don’t jump fences, I don’t dig, I come when called, I know basic commands (sit, lie down), I don’t growl at strangers, and I’m used to and good with children and other dogs. My foster mom has a Chihuahua and we get along great, so I’m guessing I’ll be fine with cats too. I am immensely sweet, loving, and intelligent. But, with all this going for me, I was abandoned by my former person, so I’m looking for a steadfast forever home.

 If you are interested in meeting me, please send your adoption application (see link on website) to Betsy at lab.rescue@earthlink.net. My adoption fee is $225.00, but I will be fully vetted (neutered, vaccinated, heartworm-checked and microchipped) before I go home with my new family and I’m worth every penny! You may also call my Lab Rescue friend Betsy at 865-206-2091 (after 6:00 PM) for more information on adopting me.

Sandy
Adoption Pending!

Sandy is a sweet, beautiful 8-year-old female yellow Lab. She has been blind since she was a pup, but it does not slow her down. She loves to play and she does well with other dogs and cats (she did catch a chicken at her foster home so we did not recommend her around them). Sandy is housebroken and knows basic commands, but she is considered ‘special needs’ and will require a home with other dogs or one where her people are home a lot. And, since she is blind, there are special accommodations that will be required for her to be adopted.

 Sandy is spayed, microchipped, current on her shots and HW negative. Adoption fee TBD. For more information on this sweet girl, please email LRRETfoster@gmail.com or call Linda at 865-207-5131(after 5 PM). If you are interested in meeting Sandy, please submit an adoption application to lab.rescue@earthlink.net or call Betsy at 865-206-2091 (after 6 PM). You must be approved to adopt before Sandy can be met.

Ebenezer

Ebenezer is a wonderful senior gentleman.  He has finished his heartworm treatment and is looking for a forever home.  He is betwen 8 - 10 years old and a big boy of 90 lbs.  He was extremely underweight when he found his way to our program.  He was found as a stray and we do not know his story.  He was already neutered.  He is now current on his shots and microchipped.  He is on hW preventative.  He takes medication for arthritis in his back legs.  He loves to go for easy paced mile or so walks.  He is learning to play and retrieve.  We would recommend a home with older children. He loves to go for car rides and can climb up stairs slowly.  If you would like to add Ebenezer to your home, contact Linda at at 865-207-5131 (after 5pm if possible) or email LRRETfoster@gmail.com.  Please submit adoption application to lab.rescue@earthlink.net.
Adoption donation TBD

More Available Companions

Due to our extreme need for more foster homes, we have been unable to save all the many beautiful Labbies in local shelters. These sweethearts are hoping to be adopted  before their time runs out. Lab Rescue has placed these dogs as referral only. We have not met or screened these animals.
