There are lots of rescue organizations that deal with finding homes for abandoned, unwanted Labrador Retrievers or those from shelters. You can adopt a quality Labrador Retriever examined by a veterinarian with all the vaccinations done. A dog that experienced a series of stresses due to the owner loss and placement to unknown surroundings can be hard to socialize sometimes. Nevertheless, instructors at rescue organizations do their best to diminish the consequences of dreadful events and help a rescued Labrador recover. Since Labrador Retrievers are very intelligent and people-oriented, they get accustomed to their new home pretty soon.

Labrador Retrievers - Ways You Can Help

Rescue organizations are always looking for foster homes. As a foster, you should be able to provide a caring temporary home until a permanent home is found for a Labrador Retriever. Donations of dog food, crates, collars, leashes, toys and money are necessary for rescues to take care of the dogs waiting for their new homes.

Many rescue organizations need people who will transport or handle the dogs. You can help with transporting dogs from local animal shelters to their new homes or veterinarians. Handlers are needed at adoption events. In addition, if you have some time available during the week, you can help rescue dogs, pick up donations or spare some time taking care of the dogs. Rescue Labrador Retrievers can make wonderful family pets and it is a rewarding experience to adopt a rescue dog.
