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 LA 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
Labradors Were Made For Los Angeles
Labradors can make themselves at home anywhere, so they are perfect for diverse cities like LA. Adaptable to every living situation, Labradors are comfortable in both mansions and studio apartments. They are the perfect companion for young families with children, or seniors who like to stay active.
Labs were originally raised to perform tasks for hunters and laborers. This is why they are so friendly and easy to train. They have been the most popular dog breed for the last ten years in the United States, and Vet Street has a comprehensive overview of why this breed is so loved.
Like most breeds, Labradors love to stay active, but Labs are engaged by everything under the sun. Whether employed as a therapy dog, hiking outdoors, or training for a show, Labs enthusiastically follow orders and accomplish tasks.
For a breed as multifaceted as Labradors, Los Angeles is a wonderland. There are dozens of dog-friendly restaurants you can take your Lab to, such as Home Restaurant, for example. Or you could even enter your dog into a surf competition for a uniquely-LA experience.
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.
LA Adopters meet and learn about pets from the Guardians (owners) who know them best.
LA Veterinarians examine pets at no extra charge as a part of the pet adoption.
Pets go directly from one loving home in LA to another. Less stress. Less chance of illness or death.
