New England Lab Rescue

New England Lab Rescue

New England is a region of the country with a high demand for Labrador Retrievers. As a result, very few are actually found in the local shelters. Our Rescue Team realized that with funding and a lot of hard work, we could rescue this amazing breed from shelters in Southern States and bring them to New England for adoption.

NELR is an approved, licensed and registered 501c3 Non Profit Rescue in the States of NY, CT, MA, NH, RI, VT, ME, NJ, TX, SC, NC.

Shelters in southern states constantly face overcrowding and must create room for more animals. Animals surrendered to shelters are the most likely to be euthanized first when a shelter needs to make space. Many animals are saved in their final days, even hours, by rescue organizations. Our Labs come from these shelters. Most are healthy, loving Labs that were once part of a family. We aim to give these dogs a successful second chance at life. They are Labs that have been surrendered by owners, picked up as strays, or even seized from their owners due to neglect. Once rescued, we use various transport services to bring our dogs safely to New England.
