"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!

Chewy

This is Chewy.  He is a four year old male lab.  He spent most of life as an outside dog but since coming into rescue he has learned to love being a real pet.  Chewy is crate trained and housebroken and does well with other dogs, cats and loves children.  He has lots of energy and would do best with a fenced yard.  He still has lots of puppy in him and needs to be supervised when not crated.  He loves attention and loves to play and retrieve.  He has learned basic commands and doing better when walking on a lead.  He is neutered and microchipped.      

For more information on Chewy, call or text Linda after 5 pm at 865-207-5131 or email at lrretfoster@gmail.com.  Adoption donation $225.   Please submit adoption applications to  lab.rescue@earthlink.net.

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

Autumn

Autumn is about 8 years old.  She was found as a stray so we have no history on her.  She has been spayed.  She is current on her shots and HW negative.  She had surgery on her upper eye lids because they were turned in (entropion).    She is very sweet. She is housebroken and crate trained.  She showed lots of interest in the the cat at the vet's office and may do best in a home without cats.  She does well with other dogs.  She loves attention and just wants to be petted.  She loves to retrieve and play.  She has really blossomed in her foster home.  Her eyes are looking much better now.  If you are looking for a sweet girl, Autumn may be the perfect match for you.  

If you are interested in adopting  Autumn, please contact Linda at 865-207-5131 (after 5pm) or text  or email  lrretfoster@gmail.com.


If you are interested in adopting Autumn, please send an application to Lab.rescue@earthlink.net.  Her adoption donation $225.

Sandy

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
Adoption Pending!

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.
