Heart of Texas Lab Rescue
The Heart of Texas Lab Rescue is a non-profit 501(c)(3), all-volunteer organization based in Austin, Texas. Our mission is to rescue Labrador Retrievers from shelters, pounds, abandonment , and other situations, and place them in loving, caring homes. The HOT Lab Rescue serves Austin, San Antonio, and surrounding areas. It is HOTLR's policy to accept and place dogs ONLY in the state of Texas. All Labradors are neutered/spayed, current on shots, and heartworm negative prior to being put up for adoption.

Now that we have our very own ranch, we are in the process of building a climate-controlled kennel building for our dogs. Please donate to help us complete this project.

We have lots of big events coming up and we would love to see our volunteers, adopters and the public. Be sure to check out the EVENTS page to see what we have planned!
Application Online Adoption Application To be completed by serious applicants only. Please note our fee is $300 to adopt a lab. There is an additional $25 non-refundable application fee.
