GGLRR places ~250 Labrador Retrievers each year in the greater SF Bay Area! See Recently Adopted for examples of Labs we have placed. Some Labs are adopted by our pre-screened adopters before they are posted on this website. If you are willing to pay the adoption fee in advance, you may be a good candidate to join our pre-screened adopter (PSA) program to receive early email notification about GGLRR Labs before they are posted on the website. Explanations of our adoption process and the PSA program are contained on the How to Adopt page. We also provide a listing of Other Labs available for adoption from individuals or shelters.
Many of our dogs are surrendered by owners who very much love their dogs but, for a variety of reasons, cannot keep them and have made the difficult decision to find them a new forever home. We applaud these owners for allowing us the opportunity to find these dogs new homes, and we do our very best not to be judgmental or critical of the choices that these owners make.
While GGLRR focuses on rescuing and rehoming Labrador Retrievers, some of our dogs are Lab mixes. Sometimes we know what they are mixed with; most times we do not. We may even have a dog up for adoption that has some physical resemblance of a Lab but turns out not to be a Lab at all (per a DNA analysis performed by the adopter). We endeavor to rescue/rehome Lab mixes that look mostly like a Lab and have the personality/temperament of a Lab. The younger a dog is, the more difficult it is to tell how “Labby” a dog will be when it is fully grown. We realize that people come to us to adopt a Lab. GGLRR cherishes the opportunity to provide new forever homes for all of the dogs that come into our program.
This page also lists status of Labs in the process of being adopted in the "No More Calls" and "Adoption Pending" sections.

Accepting No More Calls
We are no longer taking calls on the following dogs as we have sufficient candidate adopters that we are now reviewing, but we have not yet made an adoption decision yet, or the dog is temporarily no longer up for adoption due to some medical or behavioral issues that we are addressing.
We are no longer taking calls on the following dogs as we have identified a prospective adopter and are going through the final checks to finalize the adoption.
