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 Brooklyn 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
Brooklyn Is the Land for Labs
Imagine the friendly nature, vigor, and adaptability the loving Labrador retriever possesses. Now imagine the graceful Labrador meeting the cutting edge, but diverse, sprawling metropolis that makes up Kings County, or Brooklyn, New York, the second biggest county in the country. There could be no better pair!
Labradors are simply impeccable partners. Originally bred from the sweet looking St John’s Water dogs, these animals haul fishing lines and retrieve prey in the cold waters off Newfoundland. Fast forward to today, and they are the most adoptable dog in the country, and quite welcome on Brooklyn streets.
Labradors love play and exercise, and Brooklyn has plenty of fun activities that you and your Labrador can enjoy. What better way to start than at the gateway to this famous borough, the Brooklyn Bridge. Take a stroll with your Labrador across the Brooklyn bridge, and when you finish visit the Brooklyn Bridge Park, which allows dogs to run from 6am-11am.
If your Labrador is more of a socialite, consider taking a seat in the tasting room at The Brooklyn Brewery, where leashed dogs are allowed. You can enjoy the atmosphere along with a glass of some of the finest mixtures of barley, wheat, and malts while your Labrador enjoys spending time with other esteemed pups.
Brooklyn also offers dog-friendly parks beyond the Brooklyn Bridge park, like Hillside Dog Park, which allows you to let your Labrador off-leash to run and play with other animals. The park offers water and plenty of room for your Labrador to get acquainted with the other dogs.
Brooklyn is just the place for a Labrador to thrive, so get out and adopt one today!
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.
Brooklyn Adopters meet and learn about pets from the Guardians (owners) who know them best.
Brooklyn Veterinarians examine pets at no extra charge as a part of the pet adoption.
