If you are interested in adopting one of these available Labs, please first read SCLRR Adoption — How It Works, so that you understand the process. Also, before completing an application to adopt, be sure that you live in an area that we cover. Currently, we serve most of Los Angeles, Orange, Ventura and Santa Barbara Counties, and the cities of Victorville, Apple Valley and Hesperia in San Bernardino County---dependent on volunteer availability. Sorry, but SCLRR is unable to accept applications from residents of Riverside, San Diego, Kern, or San Luis Obispo Counties. For more information, including a list of Lab Rescue groups that operate in areas in which we do not, please see our Areas We Serve page.
NOTICE TO RESIDENTS of LOS ANGELES COUNTY: We are NOT accepting new adoption applications from residents of Los Angeles County until after Jan 1. If you live in LA County, please do not submit an online application to adopt. This suspension is due to the fact that we have all the applications from that area that we can handle, at this time. It is also being done to respect the interests of families who have ALREADY been approved to adopt by SCLRR. If you currently are approved to adopt from SCLRR, please consider adopting one of our available senior Labs---they're all great. Previous adopters in LA County looking to adopt from SCLRR again, please call 888-554-ALAB and leave a message.
Once you have completed an Application To Adopt, an SCLRR representative will contact you.
Puppies? SCLRR currently does NOT have puppies in need of new homes — for that reason, we are not accepting adoption applications from families or individuals looking only to adopt a puppy. If you want to add a puppy to your family, we suggest that you check your local animal shelter.
Our adoption fees for SCLRR foster dogs are $350 for dogs up to age six years, $150 for dogs seven years and older.
Foster DogsBelow are listed the Labradors that we are fostering. Again, we do not adopt outside the areas we cover in Southern California! We are unable to accept applications from residents of Riverside, San Diego, Kern, or San Luis Obispo Counties. There is also a temporary suspension on accepting applications from residents of Los Angeles County.
If you are interested in making one of these Labs part of your family, please contact your SCLRR family representative. If you have not yet applied with us, please submit an online application to adopt; an SCLRR volunteer will then contact you. Please note that your homecheck must be approved in order for you to be put in touch with a dog’s foster home.
If you do not see a possible match for your family on this page, please check back later, as new foster dogs are always being made available for adoption. In the meantime, please take a look at the available Owner-Listed Dogs, Shelter Dogs, and Courtesy Listings —your new family member might be waiting for you there, right now.
