Lone Star Animal Welfare League’s policy is that we will not adopt to families with children under 8 years of age. We have found that parents with young children have a difficult time giving needed attention and training to pups and adult dogs . These families are very busy and adding a dog to the equation can be an added burden . While this has been decided with much regret , we have found that returns have usually involved when we have placed dogs with families with young children or infants. Many rescue groups are in agreement because they find this a recurring problem. Thank you for understanding.
LSAWL missions are varied.
Our primary mission is our FIXING MONTGOMERY COUNTY Program. Through FMC we have spayed and neutered more than 3500 pets of folks who have needed assistance with the cost of this procedure. Our NON PROFIT has helped alter more than 300 animals this year alone. It is critical that this program continues to exist.
Our other mission is our LAB rescue program. Due to limited foster space we have needed to board some of our dogs and this and veterinary expenses have been a drain on our finances. WE are proud to say that since 2007 , we have saved more than 2500 labs and lab mixes and have found them wonderful families. BUT without donations and fosters we cannot continue . We need to make sure our FMC program continues its good work and therefore prevent the endless numbers of puppies and kittens from being dumped in our local shelters.
If you are wanting to surrender your pet please consider other options.
1. Enlist the help of a good trainer.
2. Consider a good doggie daycare facility that will help tire your dog while you are at work . A good dog is a TIRED DOG!
3. Commit to giving your dog more exercise every day. This will help burn off excess energy of your dog , help your own health and will help you BOND more with your best friend.
4. Your veterinarian may have some ideas if you are having issues such as housetraining issues or behavioral issues.
5. Do your research! Your dog is part of your family . Your commitment to working through issues with your dog should be the same as working through issues with any member of your family.
Teaching your children that pets are NOT disposable will give them a great foundation for the rest of their lives. Commitment . Persistence . Family Values.
LSAWL adoptable dogs will be at Orvis ( Market Street in The Woodlands )!
We hope to see you there!!
Thank you for visiting us with the intention of adopting your next family member! Our program is called LSAWL Lab Rescue and since June of 2007, we have saved and adopted out more than 3000 labs, lab mixes and some etcs! Our dogs are totally vetted. Each has been given rabies, DHPP, bordatella vaccines, fecals, heartworm tests (treated if tested positive), and of course are spayed or neutered. Each dog is also microchipped.
If you cannot adopt at this time we hope that you might consider fostering a dog which could help us pull one more dog and save another life from euthanasia.
LSAWL Lab Rescue and many wonderful dogs could use your help!! Please contact email@example.com for more information on any of our dogs.

Mr. Wally Pants is on such an awesome path to domestic bliss! His real name is Wally, but his foster mom can’t resist adding to his sweet personality. We think he came from being an outside dog that was familiar with inside life, but he has now acclimated nicely to full-time domestication and is learning that human affection is a really nice thing.
The vet thinks he is about 3-4 years old, a svelte 65lbs, and mature enough not to...more

Of course the brothers were confused and worried until LSAWL pulled them and found them experienced foster families to give them lots of love and training . Balto is a one year old handsome black lab . Good with other dogs and cats. Loves his people !

Chewy is a 4 year old lab mix, a compact yellow model in this year's Labrador lineup. At 54 pounds, he has already lost some weight, and is working to lose a bit more, which will make his recovery from ACL surgery easier. He was a beloved family dog, but when he tore his ACL, his owners realized they couldn't afford this type of orthopedic surgery, and gave him up at the shelter. Chewy is crate- trained, knows basic commands, and fits in...more
You know how all super heroes have a mild mannered alter ego that conceals their grand potential? Let us introduce Peter Parker, AKA Spider-Man! This precious black Lab mix puppy was turned into the shelter before he was even 3 weeks old. He'd probably been born under a shed and never allowed indoors. He had an awful skin infection from fleas and ticks. While most puppies squirm during their first bath, Peter relished it. Perhaps it was the...more
Diana, AKA Wonder Woman, was not even 3 weeks old when she was turned into the shelter along with her mother and four siblings. Every great superhero has some tragedy to overcome, so Diana is determined to become a beacon of justice and righteousness for animal rights.
Of the three puppies who survived being born under a shed on the Ides of March, never brought indoors, skin infections from fleas and ticks, a stint in the county...more
