Maine Lab Rescue was founded in May, 2012. We are a foster based, mostly volunteer organization. Rescue efforts are focused on saving Labs and Lab mixes from high-kill shelters or other undesirable circumstances in the south. While we focus on the Labrador Retriever and Lab mixes, we also rescue other mixed breed dogs/puppies and cats/kittens, we use our resources to help where we can. We hold a valid permit to import dogs and cats into the state, issued by Maine Department of Agriculture.

Maine Lab Rescue is a private, mostly volunteer rescue. We do not receive funding from federal, state or local governments. Sponsorships of pull fees, vetting and transportation are always welcome. As a private organization, contributions made to Maine Lab Rescue are not tax deductible.
