Texas Labrador Retriever Rescue, Inc. is a non-profit organization whose mission is to decrease the overpopulation and euthanasia of Labrador Retrievers in Texas and place rescued animals into responsible, loving homes.


TLRRI is operated solely by volunteers. We rescue purebred Labrador Retrievers from shelters and place them into responsible and loving homes. Our foster homes are located in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex area.  We do not have a facility.


For general information, please fill out the contact form or email us at info@texaslabrescue.org. If you are interested in adopting, please fill out our form, and we will get back to you quickly.

The dogs we have in our program typically range from 1-4 years in age. Occasionally we do have puppies. Dogs enter rescue through a number of sources:
  • Strays picked up by a good Samaritan
  • Stray picked up by local animal control and never reclaimed
  • Owner surrenders, where the circumstances at a home have changed to where it is not in the best interest of the dog to remain in the environment


Our dogs are placed into experienced foster care homes where they can be evaluated and observed by the foster parent(s). All of our dogs are spay/neutered, on heartworm preventative, parasite free, and current on rabies vaccination.

Our adoption fee of $250.00 ($350.00 for puppies under 6 months of age) often covers only a fraction of the expense we incur in order to get the dogs healthy. Our dogs are not placed outside the DFW Metroplex.
