• This is a one-time fee and, if approved, your application will be good for one year.

  • The Online Application must be completed in one sitting. Please allow about 10 minutes to do so.

Peak Lab Rescue often receives more adoption applications than we have dogs in our program. And processing those applications takes staff time and resources.


Placing one of our dogs into a home is a responsibility that we take seriously. Our goal is to find the best forever family for each and every dog. By charging this nominal fee, we will ensure that only the most committed potential adopters start the process.

Please remember that submitting a complete application and the non-refundable application fee does not guarantee the adoption of a Peak Lab. And please remember that Peak Lab Rescue saves BOTH Labs and Mixed Breed dogs. A dog's foster is the best source of information about temperament, energy level and possible breed mix. If approved, you will receive the foster contact information.


Peak Lab Rescue makes no guarantees about the breed content of any adoptable dog.

Peak Lab Rescue does NOT have a facility to visit. All dogs are in Foster Homes.

You must be APPROVED to adopt a dog from Peak Lab Rescue. Here's how the process works:

  1. Pay the non-refundable $20 Application Fee HERE.  SCROLL DOWN and click "Return to Merchant" to be redirected to the online Adoption Application (valid for 1 year).

  2. We may contact you via email with questions.

  3. We may contact your Vet to inquire about the care of current pets.

  4. We may contact your Landlord to ensure that the dog does not violate any restrictions.

  5. You will receive all notifications from Peak Lab Rescue via email.

  6. If approved, and if dog is still available to adopt, we will share contact information for the dog's Foster. Please contact them directly to set up a meeting at a mutually convenient time and place. Adoptions will occur on a first come, first served basis.

  7. Please allow 3-5 days for us to complete the approval process. We are all volunteers and many of us have full-time jobs.

  8. You will need to complete and sign a digital Adoption Contract and pay the $295 Adoption Fee when you take possession of the dog.

  9. Peak Lab Rescue, in its sole discretion, reserves the right to approve or decline any application.
