Luvin’ Labs is a non profit organization whose goal is to find loving homes for labs through rescue and rehoming. Luvin’ Labs was started first with an overall love for animals, second because of the personal relationships both of us have had the fortune to have with Labrador Retrievers.  We are both business professionals with full time jobs in the Albuquerque area who have devoted ourselves to rescuing and rehoming this great breed of dog.

Thank you for taking the time to visit our site, read about us, and hopefully consider adding your next four legged family member with our help!

In Loving Memory of Richard Clark Wyatt

Rick was, throughout his life, an avid lover of all animals and supported me through the startup of Luvin’ Labs.  He loved hearing the stories of each and every dog we were working with, and celebrated our successes and consoled us during our losses.  I miss you every day big brother …

Life is as dear to a mute creature as it is to man. Just as one wants happiness and fears pain, just as one wants to live and not die, so do other creatures.
