SCLRR is recognized as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Our Taxpayer ID Number is 33-0788621. We are completely dependent on donations. Since we have no paid staff, all contributions are put toward caring for the dogs. We appreciate all donations, both large and small!

IMPORTANT – PLEASE READ FIRST before clicking on the Yellow Lab below to make a donation online:

Donating Online

When you click on the Yellow Lab below, you will be taken to a PayPal page. Select the amount of your donation, then press either the “Donate with PayPal” or the “Donate with a Debit or Credit Card” button. Either login to your PayPal account OR enter your credit card info, then click the “Donate Now” button at the bottom of the PayPal page; follow any additional instructions you’re given and your dollars will be on their way to help the Labs. You will be sent a Thank You/Tax Receipt acknowledging your donation.

NOTE: When you see a box that says “Share my mailing address with Southern California Labrador Retriever Rescue,” please be sure to place a check mark in the box if you’d like to receive our annual Holiday newsletter in the US mail.

VERY IMPORTANT: If you’re making a donation in honor of someone or in lieu of a present (such as in lieu of a birthday gift), and you’d like an acknowledgement regarding your gift sent to the person being honored, please send us an email to with the details. The subject line of your email should read “Donation Details from (donor’s name).” Be sure to provide the name and address of the person who is being honored. This is a separate action from making the donation at the PayPal site.

Donations by Check

If you contribute by check, no fees are deducted so—SCLRR will receive the full amount of your donation. Please be aware that since donations are processed by volunteers, it may take up to 30 days before your check is deposited. At Christmas/New Year’s Holiday time, it can take up to 45 days for your check to be deposited—but rest assured that your tax receipt will show the year your check was written regardless of when it is deposited. Checks may be sent to our mailing address: SCLRR/Lab Rescue, 24325 Crenshaw Blvd #137, Torrance, CA 90505. You will be sent a Thank You/Tax Receipt card in the mail acknowledging your donation; receipts for Christmas/New Year’s Holiday time donations are mailed out by the end of February.

VERY IMPORTANT: If your donation check is in honor of someone, or perhaps is a contribution in lieu of a birthday present, we can mail a separate acknowledgement to the person being honored if you provide us with the person’s name and mailing address. 🙂
