How You Can Help

"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!

Willy - Knoxville

Willy is a 4-5-year-old chocolate Lab. He is not a large Lab, only 60 pounds. He is neutered, current on all vaccinations, and microchipped. He is heartworm negative and on preventive. He does well on a leash and does well on his recalls. We are just getting to know Willy, but he does well with other dogs his size and showed no interest in cats while at the shelter. He loves to play with dog toys. He is good in the house. Willy is a very playful and happy boy looking for a forever home.

 For more information on Willy, please call Linda at 865-207-5131 or email at LRRETfoster@gmail.com. His adoption donation is $200.00. An approved application is required before Willy can be met. Please send adoption applications to lab.rescue@earthlink.net.

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

Jewel - Knoxville
Adoption Pending!

My name is Jewel and I’m a 4-5 year-old spayed female Lab. I’m a big girl, weighing 80 pounds. But, despite my size, I’m an incredibly sweet girl. I love other dogs and even cats. I share a home with my foster mom’s Lab and we play all the time. I was owner-surrendered because my first mom couldn’t continue to care for me so I’m looking for a loving forever home. I know basic commands and I’m eager to learn more. I’m a great age to be adopted, well beyond the puppy stage and all that entails, but still young and playful with many years left to love and be loved. I will make a wonderful companion. And, I’m housebroken and crate-trained. Please consider making a place for me in your family.

I’m spayed, fully vaccinated, microchipped, and I’m on heartworm preventive. My adoption donation is $200.00 and covers these expenses. Please send inquiries and adoption applications to lab.rescue@earthlink.net or call Betsy at 865-206-2091 (after 6:00 PM weekdays).

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.

Gretchen & Griffen

Say hello to your new best friends… yes, I said friends, as in plural! There are two of us and we are a team. We love, love, love each other!! In early March 2014, we found our way to a kennel in Kodak, TN! This nice lady opened the door and invited us to come in, which we did not hesitate as it was very cold out. We were so excited with our new accommodations that we are still here! We love to be outside but want to have access to inside if it’s cold or storming. Gretchen is very afraid of storms and her teeth chatter if it’s cold. We love to lie in the sun and play with each other. We are best friends and MUST remain together for life because, well, that’s just how we roll… We are UTD on shots, spayed/neutered, and will eat practically any kind of food you put down for us. Cheap or expensive, we are good with it! And we love any kind of rawhide treats… YUMMY! Please think very hard about adopting us… Team G! We are approximately 3 years old. Griffen is a Lab mix, Gretchen is a Dobie mix, and we are BEAUTIFUL, SWEET, and HEALTHY!!

For more information about these precious pups, please call Kristi at 865-932-6281.
