Labrador Retriever Rescue of Florida (LRROF) is a non-profit organization dedicated to placing Labrador Retrievers in loving, permanent homes. Our organization is comprised of hardworking volunteers and vetrinarian partners that are committed to placing Labs in new homes. Lab Rescue started in 2000 as a grassroots organization and has pioneered the talents and techniques of its volunteer base to become one of the most successful dedicated breed rescues in the State of Florida.

LRROF provides foster care, veterinary care, spaying/neutering and microchips for the Labradors in our adoption program. Our goal is to place our Labradors in appropriate, permanent homes. Prior to an adoption, we consider the history, temperament, personality, and energy level of the rescued Labrador. The placement process includes a written application and a home visit of the potential adopter.

LRROF is committed to making a lifelong match for of all our adopted Labradors.


LRROF operates 12 unique areas throughout the state (known as Districts), each managed by an Area/District Coordinator who oversees the volunteers and animals throughout the area. The District Coordinators report to the Board of Directors who manages, plans and facilitates the organization overall.
