Labs in Need from Individuals

Last updated October 2, 2015 Other labs in rescues and shelters

Whenever possible, GGLRR will post Labs for individuals who must find a new home for their pet. Dogs on this page have not been met and evaluated by GGLRR and are not part of our program. We only provide this listing service as a courtesy for a month to Northern / Central California Labs and assume no responsibilities for the dogs posted on this page. Please contact if you have a dog you would like us to post on this page and provide the posting as you would like it to appear on the page.. Please note since we are a Lab Rescue, we only list Labrador Retrievers or Lab-mixes that appear to be mostly Labrador.

We welcome donations from those who benefit from our maintenance of this web page.

We encourage you to check PetFinder or Adopt a Pet for labs that may be available from other rescue organizations. For additional dogs in need of new homes, please search:

Labs and Lab Mixes Available from Others

DIPSTICK: 15 month old female mix

Dipstick!? How did she get her name? Look at that left front leg: maybe she stepped in a bucket of white paint?

This 15-month-old Lab/whippet/coon hound mix is a shy young lady who is spayed, up-to-date on shots, & tests negative for heartworm & intestinal parasites. She gets along well with other dogs her size or smaller, but big dogs scare her, & so do small children & strangers. It takes her awhile to warm up, but when she does, she loves to cuddle! A new baby is due at her house soon, so her owners are looking for a new home for her. Dipstick walks well on leash & has a very gentle mouth. She knows “sit,” and would like nothing better than a quiet, predictable “forever home.” Dipstick is located in Fairfield. To find out more, call 707-386-5345.

KENNA: 6 year-old female chocolate Lab 49 lbs

Watch Kenna's videos by clicking on the link above the pictures.

Kenna is a very sweet 6 year old, spayed female, chocolate Labrador Retriever/pointer mix, 49 lbs. Kenna was in a foster home with a 13 year female lab, a cat and two teenaged boys. We found out that she wants to be the boss and doesn't ike to share toys so she needs to be an ONLY pet in the home. She loves people and has previously lived with kids 6, 9 and 11. Kenna is a high energy girl who needs daily walks or jogs. She would be good as an agility dog. She loves to swim and play with her Frisbee. Kenna is not an outside dog but wants to be inside with her family. She would do best with someone who is home a lot. We are looking for a foster home with no other pets as she is being board at Best Friends Boarding Facility in Patterson. She can also be adopted as an ONLY pet.

Contact Charlene at 650-465-9669 if interested in meeting her.

Update:Kenna is still at Best Friends Boarding Facility in Patterson. She needs either a foster home or permanent home. It turns out that Kenna likes to be with other dogs. She has been climbing out of her kennel and going into other kennels to be with dogs. Yesterday, she was with a little rat terrier. Today she climbed into the kennel of a lab so she stayed with all day. She is not in doggie play groups at the facility and is doing well.

We Need Your Help!

Even with all our volunteers, it costs a lot to save and place 300 Labs a year. There are costs to bail-out these dogs from the shelters along with vet and temporary kennelling costs when no foster homes are available. Please consider a donation of cash, vehicle, or even your time through volunteering.
