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.

Labs and Lab Mixes Available from Others

Hazel 2- Year Old Black Lab Mix, Spayed Female

added 9/24/23

Hazel is a very sweet dog who likes people, kids and other dogs. She is happy to lay around if no one wants to play, but she enjoys balls and running when not napping. She does not like to be left alone (was rarely left alone until recently), but she eventually settles into it. She is spayed and up to date on all vaccinations.

My older daughter really, really wanted a dog, but we did not—so we said no for two years. We eventually relented and adopted Hazel from the EBSPCA as a puppy. We should not have said yes because getting a dog did not make us want a dog. Hazel is two years old and looking to live with a family who will love her.

Kimber -- 18-month-old female black Lab

added 8/20/23

Kimber is a sweet, young, female, pure bred lab. She is well tempered and a cuddly girl. She is only 1.5 years old so she still has alot of energy. She loves to play fetch and tug-a-war. Kimber is house-trained and crate-trained. We need to re home her due to the fact that we don't have any time for her. She needs someone who has the time and energy to give her. A couple of things I should mention is that she has stranger anxiety. She barks and gets nervous around strangers, but then quickly warms up to them after 5-10 minutes. She hasn't been socialized much, as she has lived in the mountains with very little interaction with people and other dogs. She has showed her teeth at us a couple of times as a natural response to her nervousness, but shows no signs of aggression. We want to find her a good loving home where she can thrive and get all the attention she deserves. She really is a pleaser, and a good girl. Kimber is not spayed at the moment and has some seasonal allergies. She is great with cats and small animals such as birds, hamsters etc. She has grown up with kids of all ages and loves them. Kimber is a very playful and happy dog.

Located In:Fortuna, CA

Hi I'm Dallas and I'm pretty much all over a great guy!

added 7/28/23

I love to play with my Hooman friends, I have so much fun in the pool and my specialty is fetch!

I'm pretty social and outgoing and love to meet new people, I also do great in the company of other dogs.

I'm loving, adventurous, and would make a perfect family dog!

Check out this report from a foster home!

Lola 5- Year Old Black Lab/Pitbull Mix, Spayed Female

added 7/25/23

I am looking for some help re-homing my sweet, 5-yr old Lab Retriever-Pitbull mix, Lola. Lola is an extremely loving and playful dog and it breaks my heart that I have to give her up, so I am looking for the best home for her. I am relocating for work and cannot have her in my apartment. She is still young and needs an active owner, and my parents are unable to provide that exercise for her.She needs an owner who will keep her active and give her attention (or she will get pretty down).

Please contact Raj, a good phone number is (408) 826-1001 and email is

We Need Your Help!

Even with all our volunteers, it costs a lot to save and place ~250 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.
