Our nonprofit organization is comprised of hardworking volunteers and vets that are committed to placing labs in new homes. We have been working together since 2000 and have rescued over 5000 dogs.

  • Declan

    When 38 pound Declan, a 1-2 year old chocolate Lab, was pulled from his backyard, it appeared that he was on his way to the Rainbow Bridge.  His sister was barely hanging on, and mom lasted just a few days before she crossed over.  The shelter immediately began searching for foster care, but the weak siblings contracted a severe strain of kennel cough, which made their struggle just that much more difficult.
    While Declan was under anesthesia, a thorough exam revealed that at some point in his young life, Declan also battled distemper.  The enamel on his teeth is malformed and he sees only large shadows, a consequence of neurological damage due to the distemper.
    Despite all of this, Declan has maintained a sunny, upbeat personality.  As you can see by his second picture, he's gained back all of his weight and he is a love bug.  He is looking for a special home, for someone who doesn't need a perfect dog, but can appreciate a loving soul. He is still learning how to play and the trainer says that he is highly trainable.  Please don't forget about this special boy when considering dogs for adoption.

    Kipper and Marlin

    We are so blessed to have brought both Kip and Marlin into our lives. We had signed up with LRROF after the loss of one of our boys, Flash, in March. We have previous experience with LRROF and wanted to provide a loving home for another precious Lab. After the wonderful home visit by Terri, we found Kipper, who was being fostered by Carolyn in Sarasota. She was kind enough to bring him by for a "meet and greet", and it was love at first sight! Needless to say, he found his forever home that night.

    Fast forward a few months...we experienced another devistating loss of our eldest boy, Levi. During the following month, I contacted LRROF regarding volunteering with the organization. After a month went by, Carolyn sent me an email regarding fostering a young boy named Morgan. Well, to make a long stoy short, Marlin (previously Morgan) has joined Kip in their forever home. They both get along splendidly with each other, and also our other two rescues, Courage (Lab) and Axel (Aussie).

    The folks at LRROF are most certainly "earthly angels" for doing all that they do for those who cannot fend for themselves and are looking for that "forever HOME".

    God bless you all and the Labs who find their way into your care.
