Did you know that Labrador Retrievers have been the #1 Registered breed  with the AKC for 24 consecutive years?  Being the #1 breed unfortunately comes with a sad cost...which is why STLRR is in existance.  On any given day, a walk through any Houston area shelter will show you a sad reality check.  There are a countless number of Labradors sitting, awaiting assistance and hoping to make it out.  You can help us help these homeless Labradors by Donating, Fostering,  Volunteering and/or Adopting!

Why we exist... Karma’s Story Karma was attacked multiple times by another dog in her home.  Rather than getting her much needed medical care, her owner opted to surrender her to a high kill animal shelter, with gaping bloody wounds and a suspected broken leg.  How it must have felt for her to be sitting in a cold, scary shelter with such injuries, is heartbreaking beyond imagination.  We pulled Karma as soon as we heard of her situation, provided her with much needed Veterinary Care and she is now in her new home, being spoiled as she should have always been.
Hurricane Harvey Rescue Relief Fund In the wake of Hurricane Harvey, STLRR has partnered with out of state Labrador Retriever Rescue Organizations which will enable us to help facilitate the rescue of Labrador Retrievers left left homeless following Harvey.  On Monday, September 4th, our first group of Labs (those already in our program!) left our area to join the ranks of Lake Erie Labrador Retriever Rescue.  This will make space in our program when we are called upon after shelters begin to release dogs in their care.  The first transport arrived safe and sound Tuesday evening. Please help us in our rescue efforts.  Proceeds from our fundraiser will cover the vetting and care of Labs joining not only our program, but to assist outside organizations with the care of our dogs. It will also cover Travel/Transport costs to get Labs to their final destinations. Donate Now to help us help Labrador Retrievers (and friends!) in need following Hurricane Harvey: Donations can be made via Paypal to or sent via USPS to PO Box 46, Magnolia, Texas 77355.  As always, thank you for your continued support!
Delilah joined us several months ago, she came in extremely emaciated and in very poor condition. Unfortunately Delilah has tested high positive for Heartworms and is having difficulty putting on weight. Please keep this sweet girl in your thoughts as she battles this very preventable disease.
