Mission Statement

ALR's mission is to identify and rescue Labrador Retrievers and Lab Mixes from overwhelmed shelters and abusive situations and place them in secure, loving homes.

Description

Atlanta Lab Rescue (ALR) is an all-volunteer, non-profit (501c3) organization. Our mission is to identify and rescue Labrador Retrievers and Lab Mixes from overwhelmed shelters and abusive situations and place them in secure, loving homes. We average 40-50 dogs in the program at any given time and have rescued over 3,000 dogs, and an occasional cat or two, since our inception. We've also been known to use the word Labrador pretty loosely. We don’t breed discriminate, and are known to have many Honorary Labs in our program. We will also never turn away a bonded pair, even if the bond is formed in the shelter.

What makes ALR special is that we not only take pets abandoned at shelters, but also dogs with critical health issues that no one else will take. This includes: pregnant and senior dogs, dogs with serious injuries, including those hit by cars or shot and left on the side of the road, as well as dogs dumped at the shelter after being diagnosed with cancer. Through the love and care of ALR volunteers, many dogs have beaten the odds and have a second chance at a happy life.
