Your 5 Step Dog Adoption Process

1) Complete your adoption application which is located below this form. You must be 18 years of age to adopt.

2) Submit your application fee of $25.00 (this can be paid via check to Labrador Rescuers, PO Box 221038,  San Diego, CA  92192-1038 or the preferred method of using PayPal using the link on our Adoption Donation page). Our goal is for a volunteer to contact you within 7-10 days days of receipt. PLEASE NOTE - you will not receive a confirmation of your submission.   The application fee is considered a donation and is nonrefundable once the home visit is completed.  

3) A Labrador Rescuer Volunteer will be assigned to assist you and will schedule a time to visit to your home.

4) Once you are approved to adopt please attend our adoption events listed on our home page. We will also work to set up meet and greets with dogs at their foster homes. We work to guide you to dogs that would best fit your lifestyle. Please understand it is not about first-come, first-served, but more about finding a dog who would best fit your situation. Please be patient.

5) Your new Labrador finds you! Once the adoption paperwork and the donation/fee is submitted, you can Welcome your New Dog to their Forever Home!

Please remember we are all Volunteers with other responsibilities in Life. We work very hard to help you find your dog but we need your help. Please understand we cannot reserve dogs and this process often takes time. The more patient and flexible you can be, the more opportunities we have to help you.

Thank you from Labrador Rescuers for using our Rescue Group to find your New Dog!
