How to Adopt

Thank you so much for your interest in adopting a rescued Labrador!  Here is our Step by Step Guide to start the process:

  1. Fill out the Prospective Owner Application below.  By carefully filling out the form, you will help us better understand your situation.  The more details you can provide, the better we will be able to match your needs and preferences with the right Labrador.  Make sure you answer ALL the required questions or your application cannot be processed
  2. Click on the “Submit” button once you have completed your application.
  3. You will see a  confirmation on the screen and you will receive a confirmation email.  If you do not receive a confirmation email, your application was not properly submitted. You can try again, check for missing required information, or email us at for help.
NOTE: Your application will not be processed unless you answer all required questions and click “Submit.” 
In addition, an application fee of $15.00 must be submitted for your application to be processed.  This is a non-refundable fee that will go towards the vet care of the LFS dogs.
If a question is not applicable, please mark as such. Thank you for your help and cooperation.
PLEASE READ THIS PRIOR TO COMPLETING THE APPLICATION: Our goal is to find the best match for our dogs and for your family.  This process ensures a successful adoption.  For this reason, we cannot guarantee that the dog you are interested in will be available by the time you are approved, or that the dog will be a good match for your household.  We encourage you to read the FAQs section to learn more about how we work.
