How To Adopt

Thank you for inquiring about adopting a Labrador Retriever. If you can provide the special home a Labrador Retriever deserves, we will offer you a dog that will be a wonderful addition to your family. The procedure for adopting a dog is as follows:


Please fill out the online application form below. There is a non-refundable $20 application fee. Once you hit submit, you will be automatically directed to PayPal to pay the application fee. Your application will not be processed until the fee is paid.


After your application has been received, our adoption coordinator will conduct a phone interview with you to discuss Atlanta Lab Retriever (Rescue) in general and specifically any rescue dogs that would be a good match for you. A home check from one of our volunteers is necessary to complete the process.


The minimum donation, at the time of adoption, for a Labrador Retriever is $350.00 for a dog up to 7 years of age. The minimum donation for a Labrador Retriever 7 -9 years is $250.00. Donations for dogs over 9 years of age will be determined at time of adoption. Adoption donations are non-refundable.


We reserve the right to refuse an applicant if, in our opinion, the home situation is not compatible with the needs of a Lab. We require that the dog be maintained primarily as an indoor dog and cannot be chained or left unattended in a yard.

We have successfully placed hundreds of Labrador Retrievers in loving homes. All Atlanta Lab Rescue dogs have had a physical exam, are neutered or spayed, immunized, and heartworm tested. Most dogs come to us from homes where there has been a move, a divorce, allergies, or just not enough quality time to spend with the dog. Others come to us from shelters, or as strays.

Our organization is comprised of hard-working volunteers whose only reward is seeing these wonderful Labs placed in loving homes and given a second chance for a happy life.
