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 Ventura County border and, in the southwestern corner of San Bernardino County we serve the cities of Chino, Chino Hills, Upland and Rancho Cucamonga—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.

Please know that we cannot accept applications from individuals or organizations seeking a Lab expected to perform as any type of service, therapy/comfort, hunting or other working dog. We are also unable to accept applications from group homes or other institutional settings. We expect nothing more of the Labs we place than to be good companion animals/family pets.

Puppies? Since SCLRR so rarely has puppies under 6 months of age, we do not accept adoption applications from individuals or families seeking only to adopt a puppy. By far the best place to find a rescued puppy for your family is your local animal shelter.

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

Our current adoption fees are $450 for dogs up to age 6 years, $150 for dogs 7 years and older.

Note: If you don’t see a possible match for your family among our Foster dogs featured below, please click on the links at the top of this page to see available Owner-Listed dogs, Courtesy dog listings, and dogs in shelters.

Foster Dogs

Listed below are the fostered Labrador Retrievers that are ready for adoption. 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.
