Labs For Adoption

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.

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 for more information on any of our dogs.

Riggins »

SHORT, DARK, AND HANDSOME! Riggins is a sweet and gentle 3 year old pocket sized (37 lb) Labrador Retriever mix for that big dog look in a small dog package. He is super mellow while in the house but playful at the dog park with his friends. He has no interest in being alpha dog. He just wants to have fun and let someone else call the shots. Riggins is smart and quickly learns what is expected of him. He doesn't jump on furniture and only...


Ava »

Ava was saved from a local shelter the day before euthanasia . She had a lump and bad skin issues and we were told this shelter will put down for these issues.

The lump was from infection due to her flea dermatitis / secondary skin infections. Antibiotics, good food and great foster care are working their magic . She had the lump removed , a dental and is now spayed . She is such a loving petite girl ( 50 lbs), great with...

8 year old Bodie ( Bo) was abandoned by his uncaring owner but found by a Good Samaritan neighbor . The neighbor knew where he lived and when he called the owner he was asked if he wanted him . Knowing that Bo was outside 24/7 and unhappy he called us for help . Thankfully one of our wonderful foster families was available . Thank you Timaree and Chris! He has been neutered and now being Heartworm treated . Obviously he knew his former...

Astro »

His foster mom says " He is doing so well! He is...


Peyton »

This boy is fabulous with people and kids ( older than 6 ) . He is 1 year old and approx 57 lbs. We think he would be a great only dog or with an older more submissive dog. He is a bit fearful of young dogs in his face. He is adoring of his people though so if you want a wonderful companion to take walks and snuggle with you he would be in heaven. He is house trained, okay in crate and heartworm negative .



Wrigley »

Sweet, quiet little guy about 5 months old, what can we say about you? You came into the shelter as a stray, already a tripod and so scared of the chaos and loud noises. Such a quiet and shy little guy when you were brought to your foster home, you got a bath, a clean bed, and your first of many warm meals. You battled through distemper like a champion, and now you’ve grown from a skinny, scared tiny puppy into a mischievous and playful...


Boone »

7-8 month old pup .

Quickly learning all

About the world of responsible pet care . But he will need continued training .

Vetting is starting tomorrow ( Monday ) .
