Safe Harbor Lab Rescue, an all-volunteer rescue organization located in Golden, Colorado, has rescued, fostered and adopted Labrador Retrievers to loving homes since 2002. Our rescued Labrador Retrievers come to us from Colorado and surrounding states. The rescued Labs receive veterinary care and are fostered in the Denver area before they are adopted. Safe Harbor Lab Rescue would welcome your support as a foster family for a Lab awaiting adoption, an adopter or a donor.

Safe Harbor Lab Rescue’s supporters make it possible to rescue and care for some wonderful abandoned Labrador Retrievers who others turn away or may not have the resources to help. These are friendly Labs with a classic Lab temperament who may have a significant, but treatable medical condition with a good prognosis, if provided with high quality care. Safe Harbor Lab Rescue is also committed to rescuing Labs abandoned in their golden senior years who are in good age-appropriate condition. We are grateful to our adopters and fosters in the Denver, Colorado area and beyond for loving these grey-muzzled rescues.

Safe Harbor Lab Rescue welcomes your support of our efforts to rescue, foster, and care for Labrador Retrievers in need and to adopt these special Labs to loving forever homes where new beginnings await.
