We connect people who want to adopt or rescue a Labrador Retriever with people who need to find their Labrador a new home in the Miami-Dade area.
What We Do
Direct rescue & adoption of pets, from one good home to another. Rehoming a Labrador keeps them out of shelters.
“Program innovations, like the match-making website developed by Get Your Pet, can be life savers for pets, owners and shelters.”Matt Bershadker ASPCA President & CEO
Miami Offers a Haven for Your Active Lab
Labrador Retrievers’ friendly nature, adaptability, and natural love of water and swimming are at home in a city like Miami, a haven for Labs and their owners alike. Labradors can comfortably make their home in a Miami apartment or condo. Extremely loyal, these dogs make a great addition for new families, or for retirees who want to stay active in South Beach.
Originally, Labradors were bred to work alongside fishermen in Newfoundland, where their thick, waterproof coats allowed them to swim in low temperatures and strong currents for long periods of time. This is why Labradors love swimming and learn new commands easily. You can learn more about what makes Labradors the most popular dog in American and their history here.
Miami offers a wide array of activities for your active Labrador. If you want to really make your dog’s day, take a trip to Haulover Beach Park where your Lab can run free along the beach and play in the fountains as you exercise, or just take in the surroundings.
For a loving and friendly breed like the Labrador, Miami offers a great social scene! If you visit Concrete Beach Brewery during Pups and Pints night, where you can meet other Miami dog owners over drinks, with dinner served for both you and your Lab. All proceeds go to help dogs without a family get adopted.
Miami is just the place to treat your Labrador to the meal of their life. At the Doggie Bag Cafe, you can purchase anything from specialty “pup cakes” to grass-fed beef sliders for your Lab. It’s gourmet meals for dogs done right, and your pup will thank you.
The opportunities Miami offers you and your Labrador are immense, so get out there!
The best way to save a beloved Labrador Retriever, or any pet, is to keep them out of the shelter system. Rehoming a dog or cat is a better kind of pet adoption, in every way.
Miami Adopters meet and learn about pets from the Guardians (owners) who know them best.
Miami Veterinarians examine pets at no extra charge as a part of the pet adoption.
Pets go directly from one loving home in Miami to another. Less stress. Less chance of illness or death.
