Surrendering Your Pet

If you are unable to keep a pet adopted from Maine Lab Rescue, please email info@mainelabrescue.com. Include your name, when the pet was adopted and if possible, the MLR name. Please note the reason you cannot keep the pet in your email.

If you need to surrender a pet not adopted from Maine Lab Rescue, please note that we are not an open intake shelter. We are a rescue based foster, and as such, we do not have a facility to house animals. If there is an occasion we can take a pet in after discussion with the family and reviewing medical records, we often cannot take them in immediately, the wait could be several weeks as our foster homes remain full much of the time.

Our ability to take pets with medical needs is very limited.
