Our Mission is finding permanent homes for Labs and Lab Mixes rescued from abuse, neglect, abandonment, and high-kill shelters throughout NC. Peak Lab Rescue is the largest foster-based dog rescue in North Carolina. That means we do not have a facility. All Peak Labs live in foster homes where they can learn the skills necessary to become successful family members.
Look at what we have accomplished together...
  • 1,050 dogs saved in 2019
  • More than 7,500 dogs saved to date
But we don't just save dogs, WE BUILD FAMILIES. 
  • If you are single and adopt a dog from us, you become a FAMILY.
  • If you are a couple and adopt a dog from us, you grow your FAMILY (and you learn a lot about your child-rearing skills).
  • If you have kids and you adopt a dog from us, you enhance your FAMILY. Numerous studies have shown that kids who grow up with dogs are happier, healthier, and more compassionate.

Peak Lab Rescue, Apex, NC


There are many reasons why the Labrador Retriever is the most popular dog in the world. These active, friendly, and outgoing dogs love their humans and play well with others. Labs excel as working dogs because of their even temper and strong desire to please their master. And kids? Labs love 'em. We have a passion for goofy, lovable Labs and work hard to prepare them to become successful family members.


Yes!! It breaks our heart when these warm, intelligent dogs find themselves in situations of abuse, neglect, or abandonment. All a Lab will ever ask is to be by your side as a part of your family. That's exactly what these sweet-natured dogs deserve. And finding loving, permanent families for Labs in need is exactly why Peak Lab Rescue exists.
