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 Upland, Chino, Chino Hills, Rancho Cucamonga, Victorville 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.

Due to the strong demand to adopt rescued Labrador Retrievers, we are temporarily unable to accept any new adoption applications at this time . We have many applicants who've already had their homechecks done and who have been waiting patiently for weeks and months to adopt a dog from us. We apologize if you are unable to submit your adoption application at this time. Please check back with us every week, as our adoption application is usually available once again a week or two after having been taken offline.

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

Puppies? SCLRR very rarely has puppies under 6 months of age, so 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 to add to your family is your local animal shelter.

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

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

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.

Sorry, we haven’t any foster dogs available for adoption at this time. But we always have dogs in foster care being evaluated and readied for adoption, so please check this page later. 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.
