Lone Star Labrador Retriever Rescue (Lone Star Lab Rescue) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, all volunteer organization dedicated to preventing the needless destruction of purebred Labrador Retrievers in the DFW/Dallas/Fort Worth/North Texas area.
Our Meet-n-Greets will be held at the petco located at the south east corner of Preston and SH-121 in Plano. For a map and directions, please see our Meet-n-Greet information page.
The Stay Home orders are in place for quite a while to come, but we cannot just let our foster Labs sit in our homes when they need to be moved to their forever families. We don't want them to bond too much with us and upset them when they move on.
We are working through the applications that we receive. We hate it, but we are just going to have to work with the applications that are closest to what our fosters know is best for their dogs. That doesn't mean that other applicants who don't get one of the dogs currently in our program won't get a Lab. It just may have to be a different Lab. Applications are still required and even more important than ever in giving us the information needed to make decisions. We still require home visits. We are keeping social distance and require that anyone that we meet with commit that they have NO COVID19 exposure that they are aware of. If you are uncomfortable meeting with us until the Stay At Home order is lifted, then hold off on submitting an application.
Please understand that we are really doing our best and don't normally work this way. We much prefer to give everyone interested in a dog the chance to come meet them and see for themselves if the dog is a good fit. As of this morning, Tuttle and Ryder have been spoken for. We are not accepting any more applications for Finley. She will likely be adopted this weekend. We have no firm commitment for Humpty or Sid at this point.
During these extraordinary circumstances, we ask for your understanding and patience. We will be extremely careful when meeting anyone interested in adopting a Lab. No hand shaking, no hugs, no kissing except from the dogs!
These are dogs that have recently come into the Lone Star Lab Rescue program. They haven't been with us long enough for us to have much information on them. In some cases, they are finishing up their medical treatments. In either case, as we get to know them and have more to tell, we'll post information here. Watch for these dogs to move to the "available" page.
These are dogs in our program that will be in medical care longer than our normal fosters.
Red came to us with a very severe case of heartworms. Because of this, we're using a much slower treatment method that we normally use. He'll be closely monitored and kept calm and quiet by his foster parents until he's completed is treatment. He'll be ready for adoption in April.
