Pay the $20 Non-Refundable Application Fee, SCROLL DOWN AND CLICK "Return to Merchant" to be redirected to the Application.


  • 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.

Print, sign, & bring a HARD COPY of this when you pick up your new Peak Lab from Foster.

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 present a signed Adoption Contract and the $295 Adoption Fee to the Foster when you take possession of the dog.

  9. Peak Lab Rescue reserves the right to approve or decline any application at it's sole discretion.
