Welcome to Golden Gate Labrador Retriever Rescue!
























IT'S TIME - 2017 Calendar Photos - DEADLINE is 9/25/16

Is your Labrador Retriever the most gorgeous dog in the world? You’ve probably shared photos of him or her with friends and family, and on Facebook too. How would you like the chance to make your Lab an even bigger celebrity? We are asking for submissions for the 2017 calendar, with lucky Labs to be chosen to grace the pages of the calendar, while raising much needed funds for Lab Rescue. If you would like a photo of your Lab(s) to be considered as one of the photos in GGLRR’s 2017 Calendar, please send the photo(s) along with your name, the dog's name and the month / year the dog was adopted from us to GGLRR.. We will have a Tributes page so if your dog is no longer with us, please let us know so we can include on that page. The email address is labrescuesfcalendar@gmail.com. We only accept submissions from the dog owner and by emailing the photo, you are giving GGLRR permission to use the photo for the calendar or our website.

Photo Guidelines:

The calendar will be a fundraiser for GGLRR this fall, and so we want to feature Labs that have been adopted through GGLRR. If you've adopted a dog from another rescue organization or other source, that dog isn't eligible for inclusion in our calendar. Photos with multiple dogs are welcome, but all dogs shown in the photo must be from GGLRR.

All colors, ages and sexes of Labradors are welcome! Since this is a LAB calendar, we prefer to feature dogs that look like Labradors (purebred or mostly-Lab mixes) though we have loved all the dogs placed through GGLRR regardless of what they looked like. We encourage people to use settings showing the fun people have with their Labs in beautiful Northern California settings (beach, mountains, hiking trails, Golden Gate bridge, etc).

You may include as many GGLRR-adopted Labs in the photo as you want, but please no people, text, nor copywritten backgrounds. Professional photographs will be accepted if submitted by the photographer who can provide GGLRR permission for unlimited usage of the photo as listed with the submission. Please do not use watermarks or other text since photo info and credits will be added consistently on the calendar.

Each owner may submit up to 5 photos of the same Lab. Please submit as high of resolution as your camera permits (8 megapixel or higher preferred). Photos should only be sent in .jpg or .png format. Photos can be submitted through September 25th, 2016 . Please note that you don't need a fancy SLR camera to win, e.g. a point-and-shoot camera that captures a beautiful Lab's personality while playing in Tahoe snow has a good chance of winning one of our winter months! -->

Lab Rescue Overview

GGLRR is an all-volunteer, nonprofit tax-exempt organization in the greater San Francisco Bay Area of Northern California.  Our Lab Rescue team saves purebred Labrador Retrievers and Lab mixes from shelters, as well as assists people giving up their dogs for adoption.  We provide foster homes, veterinary care, and rehabilitation when needed, and place them with loving, forever families. Read some of our happy ending Stories.

Our services are limited to the greater San Francisco / Oakland / San Jose Bay Area (including up to Napa and down to Monterey/Carmel) and encompass the following area codes:  408, 415, 510, 650, 707, 831, and 925.

Please read about adoption options and process on our how to Adopt page, or see our Labs looking for homes and those recently adopted under Labs Available.

Show your support of lab rescue by shopping in our GGLRR logo and Lab merchandise Store. Profits from our product sales go towards helping more homeless Labs.

GGLRR rescued 325 dogs in 2013 (380 in 2012, 424 in 2011, 383 in 2010 and 347 in 2009!) but the need is far greater with so many people losing jobs and homes or other reasons for abandoning their dog. If you want to help Labs in need, please consider adopting a rescue/shelter dog, making a Donation of cash/vehicle, or donating your time as a Volunteer. GGLRR and the Labs we rescue are very appreciative of all the tremendous support we receive -- thanks to the people and businesses who are contributing their time, services, and money!

URGENT HELP NEEDED:


GGLRR is in urgent need of caring, qualified foster homes. Many wonderful Labs are in need of our help to find new, life-long homes and families. Without foster homes where they can be safe and receive the care they need to prepare them for adoption, we will not be able to save deserving Labs. If you would like to learn more, please go to the Volunteer Page. Follow the Next Steps at the bottom of the Volunteer Page to contact us.


More about GGLRR

GGLRR exists to:

  • Encourage and promote responsible dog ownership and reduce the abuse and neglect of unwanted Labrador Retrievers through rehabilitation and adoption.
  • Promote the humane treatment of Labrador Retrievers and accept for placement unwanted Labrador Retrievers, care for them medically, spay/neuter them and place them in caring homes.
  • Provide educational services to interested public regarding responsible breeding and guardianship of Labrador Retrievers.
  • Educate dog owners about training, spay/neuter and the humane care for their dogs and promote good canine citizenship.

Essentially GGLRR facilitates the placement of unwanted Labrador Retrievers into loving new homes. We have a spay/neuter requirement for all dogs that we place. If a dog has been abused or needs medical attention, we provide emotional and medical rehabilitation. Individuals who desire to adopt Labrador Retrievers must first contact one of our rescue representatives for adoption screening before being introduced to any of our dogs. Our primary purpose is to provide good homes for Labrador Retrievers who might otherwise be abandoned or euthanized by their previous owners. Through education, we seek to reduce the unwanted dog population and increase responsible pet ownership.
