Adoption Information

MLRR does its best to match the right dog with the right family by finding out as much as possible about the potential adoptive family before placing a dog. Anyone interested in adopting a Lab must:

  • Read and agree to our Adoption Policies.
  • Upon acceptance of the application, an MLRR volunteer will contact you to arrange a home visit.
  • You will then be notified if you are approved for adoption.
  • If you are an approved adopter, you will be contacted when a potential Labrador that is a "match" for you is available.

Adoption Fees
Puppies (under 12 months) $350
Adult Labs (1 year to 5 years) $300
Senior Labs (6 years and up) $225

If the puppy or adult Lab is not spayed/neutered before adoption there will also be a $50 deposit due at the time of adoption in addition to the adoption fee. The $50 deposit will be returned to the adopter once MLRR receives proof of neuter. The adoption fee helps offset the rescue expenses incurred by MLRR. The average vetting cost is approximately $600 per Lab.

Spaying and Neutering
Rescued Labs from MLRR will be spayed or neutered. This not only prevents more unwanted puppies, but also reduces the dog's risk of certain health problems later in life, including some types of cancer.
