|Surrendering Your Single Breed Lab
Thank you for calling on Labrador Rescue to find that new loving home your dog deserves.
The following information will explain the process to finding your Labrador a new home. The
volunteers at Lab Rescue know how difficult it is to make a decision to surrender your dog
and we commit to that we will take all available measures to facilitate a new loving home for
your Lab where he can be healthy, happy and safe!
Please note we only accept single breed labs in our care, meaning the mother
and father of the lab are both Labrador Retrievers.
LAB RESCUE will ask that you to fill out an Owner Surrender Information form which can be
found online. This will provide us with all the necessary information about your dog.
Please be candid when filling this out, as the information will help us match your Lab with the
most suitable new owners. All dogs are evaluated by a Surrender Coordinator for such things
as temperament, level of obedience, training etc., prior to being accepted into the program.
We do not accept dog aggressive or people aggressive dogs. There is a nominal fee
requested with the surrender of your dog.
Potential owners are screened by LAB ADOPTION SERVICES for suitability to adopt a dog
prior to being placed on the approved new owner adopter list. Please note, we take our
receives over 400 adoption applications per year which allows us to select the best family for
a match with your lab. New owners sign an adoption contract which covers such things as
the standard of care expected by LAB RESCUE, and pay an adoption fee which helps defray
the veterinary expenses, and administration costs of the program. The lab can be reclaimed
by the LAB RESCUE if any conditions of the contract are breached.
Volunteers of the LAB RESCUE will follow-up after the adoption process to ensure that there
is a suitable match between the new owner and dog, and that the dog is being well cared for.
The length of time it takes for a Lab to be adopted depends on a number of factors including:
the number of approved new owners, and dogs on our lists, the age, sex, and colour of the
dog, the dogs temperament, level of training, health condition and the time of the year.
Please note at this time we can only accept full labs (meaning single breed Labs
only) into our care. We are unable to accept lab mixes into our care due to
heavy demand request for single breed labs.
Our location is in Oakville Ontario, Canada and the lab will need to come into this area to be
admitted into our care..
