Maine Lab Rescue is an all-breed dog and cat rescue, with a focus on Labs and Lab mixes. Animals are rescued from high kill shelters or other undesirable circumstances in the south. Before arriving in Maine, they receive vaccinations and other vet care, and transported north for adoption.

While in Maine, our pets live in foster homes until adopted, rather than a shelter facility. In some cases this will be the first home they've ever lived in, fosters help them adjust to their new surroundings and care for them in the same way they care for their own pets. Fosters are the backbone of any rescue organization, and are always needed. For more information, please email
