Welcome to The Labrador Rescue Trust
The Labrador Rescue Trust is a registered charity that has rehomed the Labrador breed in the South West of England since 1988. We cover Cornwall, Devon, Somerset, Dorset, Wiltshire, Gloucestershire, parts of the Forest of Dean near Chepstow, Bristol and Bath as well as the adjoining parts of Berkshire, Hampshire and Oxfordshire.
RESPONSE TO COVID-19 CRISIS (UPDATED 8/6/20)
The Labrador Rescue Trust is still adhering to both the Government’s advice and The Association of Dogs and Cats Homes guidance for companion animal rescue and rehoming organisations.
By following this advice we will continue with the non-processing of applications and routine rehoming of dogs.
It is both unfair and impractical at this stage to allow or expect our dedicated volunteers to put themselves at risk to carry out routine home checks and the vetting of dogs.
Dogs that have a dire welfare need will of course be assessed if safe and practical but only if permission is gained at senior management level to do so.
As a trust we understand how frustrating this is for potential homes and those waiting, it is also increasingly frustrating for our volunteers too.
The government guidelines are extremely clear about unnecessary journeys and meeting people outside your family.
New Home Applications Update – 6/7/20
Unfortunately, we have seen an incredible increase in enquiries and requests for application forms.
Due to this we have made the decision that we will not be sending out or accepting any new applications at this time. This decision will be reviewed regularly.
In the meantime The Labrador Rescue Trust would like to thank you for offering to re-home a Labrador.
If you have a dog that needs to be rehomed please do still contact us
Any applications that are waiting will be dealt with ASAP when restrictions are lifted
Please look at the Gov.Uk website for clarification on restrictions
Thank you for your understanding and continued support
SINCE 1988, WE HAVE HELPED 11,424 DOGS
