Interested in adopting one of these available Labs? Please first read SCLRR Adoption — How It Works, so you'll understand the process. Also, before submitting an adoption application, be sure that we cover your area.

Currently we serve most of Los Angeles, Orange, and Ventura Counties. We also serve the coastal communities of Santa Barbara County from Goleta south to the border with Ventura County, and in the southwestern corner of San Bernardino County only the cities of Upland, Rancho Cucamonga, Victorville, Apple Valley and Hesperia---dependent on volunteer availability. Sorry, but SCLRR is unable to accept applications from residents of Riverside, San Diego, Kern, or San Luis Obispo Counties, or cities in San Bernardino County that are not listed above. 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.

Once you have completed an Application To Adopt, an SCLRR representative will contact you.

Puppies? SCLRR rarely has puppies under age 6 months in need of new homes. For that reason, we accept applications from families or individuals looking to adopt a puppy ONLY when we have puppies available for adoption. Please check our available Foster Dogs below to see if we have puppies BEFORE APPLYING to adopt a puppy from SCLRR. In general, the best place to find a puppy for your family is your local animal shelter.

Please be aware that we expect nothing more of the Labs we place than to be good companion animals/family pets. For this reason, we cannot accept applications from individuals or organizations seeking a Lab expected to perform as any type of service, therapy, or emotional support dog, nor as a hunting or other working dog.

Our current adoption fees are $350 for dogs up to age 6 years, $150 for dogs 7 years and older.

Foster Dogs

Below 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. Absolutely no out-of-State adoptions.

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.
