About Us......

Labrador Retriever Rescue Scotland SCIO (SC 042724), is a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation, dedicated to the welfare of Labrador Retrievers in the whole of Scotland, and parts of Northern England. The Rescue relies heavily on the goodwill and generosity of family, friends, Labrador owners and even other breed owners (Flatcoated Retrievers, Golden Retrievers, German Short Haired Pointers and Spaniels to name but four.) to run the Rescue.

Fund raising is carried out locally in (Caithness) and in other parts of Scotland and England by friends and colleagues all year round as no charge is made for re homing to the previous or new owner for this service. Of course if either should wish to make a donation then it would be gratefully received.

Each Labrador is matched to the new family individually and contact is kept with me for the remainder of the dogs life with updates and photos etc. Previous owners are also supported by me with updates for what is usually a traumatic time having been forced to give up their beloved Labrador.

In excess of 600 pure Labrador Retrievers have been rehomed by me in the last 12 months and upwards of 70 others of predominantly Labrador origin. Sadly the numbers are rising steeply each week.

The main reasons for Labradors being rehomed are

Marriage/partnership breakups
Moving house to rented accomodation
Terminal illness
Death of owner
Owners suffering from strokes
Ill health

Sadly the recession has hit hard and emigration is on the rise. So too are people who have been made homeless - people who love their Labradors and could never have envisaged being in this situation.

No one can predict the future and not everyone has family or friends who can rally round to help someone keep their Labrador.

The vast majority of Labradors being re homed by me are genuine cases of sad changes of circumstances - only a handful are unwanted Labradors.

If you would like to adopt, please contact me or my deputy Mrs Cathy Mathew.

Dogs needing a new home......

We have Labradors needing homes all the time.

The dogs we put here, on the website are usually the ones which need special homes, such as the ones which are elderly, have medical conditions, the ones which we need to go as a pair or dogs with special needs. If you would like to enquire regarding the availability of any of our rescue Labradors that are not on this site, please telephone or email.
