Luvin’ Labs Organizational Announcement 

Please note that our owner listing program is changing

 

At Luvin’ Labs, we understand that sometimes life becomes difficult and you find you are no longer able to keep your Labrador.

Before you re-home your dog, please ask yourself:

Has my dog’s behavior changed? If so, please take him/her to your vet and have a thorough check-up to rule out any physical problems.

Are you having difficulties with your dogs getting along? Look at the situation that is triggering the friction. Consult a trainer for advice. We can recommend trainers or training methods.

Are they being destructive? Do they need more exercise?

If you are moving, is it possible to find a dog friendly place to live? Do you have friends or family that can help by taking the dog for a while until you can get settled?  

We will be happy to courtesy post your lab for you on our website. Interested parties will now contact you directly, Luvin’ Labs will no longer facilitate the placement process. Please be advised that we make no representations nor recommendations about interested parties contacting you. When rehoming your family member, we recommend that you please be diligent in making sure you are finding a good match for both the inquiring family and your dog. We advise you to meet the whole family, meet their existing pets (do a meet and greet with your dog), take your pet to their home and do a home inspection, check their references (both vet and personal), transfer all medical records, and if you are able to, have them sign a form allowing you to reclaim the pet in the event anything happens.

PLEASE DO NOT ADVERTISE YOUR LAB FOR FREE ON CRAIGLIST OR ANY OTHER INTERNET SWAP MEET TYPE WEBSITE. People monitor Craigslist and other sites to find dogs for fighting rings and many other horrific things.

We recommend surrendering your lab to Animal Humane New Mexico in Albuquerque as a safe alternative to finding a new home. Their contact information is: 615 Virginia St. NE, Albuquerque, NM 87108. 505-255-5523. animalhumanenm.org.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work through this transition.

All of us at Luvin’ Labs
