ILRR serves to unite loving families with their forever dog!
Independent Labrador Retriever Rescue of Southern California rescues and rehomes Retrieving breeds in the Southern California area including LA County, Santa Barbara area, and Orange County. We are dedicated to saving the lives of unwanted Labradors, Goldens, and other purebred Retrieving breeds from area shelters when they are on death's door. We take in dogs from families no longer willing or able to care for their dogs and treat dogs with myriad health issues.
Please contact us if you are no longer willing or able to care for your Labrador, Golden or other retrieving breed. ILRR does not take in nor do we place any dog that shows or is known to have shown aggression toward humans. Most of our dogs spend at least a week in a foster home and have been given a general exam by a veterinarian. We are therefore able to provide some idea of the health and temperament of each. However, we are neither veterinarians nor behaviorists and cannot guarantee soundness or temperament. As a new owner you should handle your new dog cautiously until you're comfortable with the dog's behavior and health. No dog should ever be left unsupervised with children.
Vet care, shelter redemption fees, transport, and a plethora of other costs make our work a labor of love. Sadly we can only help so many dogs. Our funds come directly from our fees to adopters and from donations. Good luck in your search and thank you for considering a rescued Retriever!
