Surrendering your Lab

Surrendering your dog can be a difficult process -- for both you and the dog. Las Vegas Labrador Rescue is here to help, if we can. We also offer in-home counseling on identifying solutions to keep your dog.

In order to surrender to LVLR, your dog must:

      • Be a Labrador Retriever;
      • Be up to date on vaccinations;
      • Accompany a senior wellness examination if over 7 years old;
      • Not be a candidate for euthanasia
      • Not be people or dog aggressive
      • Must live within city limits of Las Vegas, North Las Vegas, Henderson, Summerlin or Boulder City

The surrender process can be lengthy, as we have a long list of dogs currently waiting for placement to the program. Please be prepared to spend 10 to 15 minutes of your time completing the application. It will take between 1 to 3 business days for us to respond to your application to begin discussions about the possibility of surrender and your anticipated wait time. Please be as thorough and honest as possible in the application, as this will determine eligibility.

Before any dog is accepted into the program, it will undergo an in-home evaluation by a LVLR volunteer. This in home evaluation will be scheduled with you only after the dog has been tentatively accepted into the program. No dog will be accepted into the program until the evaluation has been completed and all documentation checked for validity and a discussion with your vet has occurred.

Should your dog not be eligible for the program, a list of other shelters and rescues are available here for you to consider.
