Labrador Retriever Rescue of Florida (LRROF) is a 100% volunteer state-wide organization dedicated to rescuing, rehabilitating and placing Labrador Retrievers in loving, permanent homes.  Our mission to rescue Labrador Retrievers is made possible by our dedicated volunteers, partners and donors.  All of our dogs are housed in foster homes so we do not have a physical shelter location.


Many lovable, adoptable labs are in foster care right now awaiting permanent homes.

LRROF is a foster-based rescue.  We don’t have a shelter or central facility.  Instead, all of our dogs are in the care of our network of foster families.

The more foster homes we have, the more dogs we can rescue!

Our Mission

Labrador Retriever Rescue of Florida (LRROF) is a non-profit organization dedicated to placing Labrador Retrievers in loving, permanent homes. Our organization is comprised of hardworking volunteers and veterinarian partners that are committed to placing Labs in new homes. Lab Rescue started in 2000 as a grassroots organization and has applied the talents and techniques of its volunteer base to become one of the most successful dedicated breed-specific rescues in the State of Florida.

LRROF provides foster care, veterinary care, spaying/neutering and microchips for the Labradors in our adoption program. Our goal is to place our Labradors in appropriate, permanent homes. Prior to an adoption, we consider the history, temperament, personality, and energy level of the rescued Labrador. The placement process includes a written application and a home visit of the potential adopter.

LRROF is committed to making a lifelong match for of all our adopted Labradors.
