Our Service Area

Thank you for your interest in Labrador Retriever Rescue, Inc. (LRR). LRR is a local rescue comprised of volunteers mainly in the East-Central U.S. Our service area is limited to:

  • Washington, DC
  • Northern Virginia
  • Maryland (except western MD and eastern shore)
  • Delaware
  • New Jersey: only within 30 miles of Pennsville, NJ
  • Pennsylvania: Lancaster, Lebanon, York, and Adams counties, and parts of Berks and Dauphin counties.

We have been overwhelmed with the interest many of you outside of this area have shown in working with us to adopt or surrender a Lab. While we would love to be able to take advantage of so many good homes and Labs out there, LRR is unable to perform long distance adoptions or give-ups and we are not affiliated with any other Labrador rescue organization.

Applicants interested in adopting a dog from LRR should be prepared to travel locally to visit at least three dogs in their foster homes, which could be in any of the areas/states we work in!

Can You Recommend A Rescue Near Me?

Unfortunately, No. LRR is an independent rescue that is not networked with any other Labrador rescue, so we cannot assist you with finding a rescue closer to your home. However, we do have a couple of suggestions. You may want to try the AKC Labrador Retriever Rescue Network Search and Adopt-a-Pet. You can also use search portals such as Google and Yahoo to find labrador rescues in your area.

We also recommend you contact your local shelter/SPCA/Humane Society and inquire about local rescues. They most likely will not only know which rescues operate locally, but can also give you an idea of their policies and procedures.
