Mile High Labrador Retriever Mission

Please read the following information before contacting us.

We are solely volunteer based and most of us have families and work full time. If you are interested in a particular dog we ask that you submit an adoption application in order to get approved to meet the dog and talk to the foster family. We receive hundreds of emails a day and while we aim to respond to each we simply can’t keep up with people asking detailed questions about dogs before being approved to adopt.

WE ARE NOT AN OPEN INTAKE SHELTER! We do not have a shelter at all. Mile High Lab Mission exists to save dogs in shelters from being put to sleep… Dogs in life threatening situations! Hard to believe but many wonderful dogs get put to sleep every day in shelters for lack of foster care and rescue assistance. MHLRM has a limited number of foster homes and they are all full all the time.

IF YOU HAVE FOUND A DOG THAT YOU THINK TO BE A LABRADOR we may be able to help depending on foster availability. Please email us detailed information (if available) and photos. Please remember that we get dozens of requests to save dogs every day so may not always respond.

CHECK OUT OUR SITE FIRST: The answer to your question might be on our site already. Take a look around first, paying special attention to the adopt, and foster pages.

That said…. we would love to hear from you! Please remember that we are all volunteers so please be patient as we work hard to get back to you. Thanks!

Our Mission…
The Mile High Labrador Retriever Mission, (MHLRM), a 501(c)3 non-profit public charity, is dedicated to alleviating the needless death and suffering of homeless or misplaced (lost and stray) purebred Labrador Retrievers as well as Labrador mixes mostly in high-kill overpopulated pet areas that usually are out of state. By rescuing and rehabilitating homeless Labradors in high-kill areas, vigorously promoting responsible dog ownership through active participation in pet-related events, and through our own education program, we strive for a better life for each of our animals.

The majority of dogs that you see available for adoption with MHLRM were previously in county pounds or shelters that find themselves at capacity and are forced to euthanize, or dogs that have simply “sat on the shelf” and not gotten adopted quick enough and have run out of time. Many of these facilities use euthanasia methods that are considered inhumane by the majority of the US population but are still being implemented (ie. the gas chamber method or “heart-stick” method).

We are active in the metro areas of Colorado and Texas, and we belong to an amazing network of volunteers across the country that have worked hard in very rural areas to help get Labradors to safety since 2010. We have rescued Labs from Arkansas, Colorado, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, West Virginia, and Wyoming.

When we learn of a dog in need, we coordinate foster arrangements and appropriate health care where the dog is and also here in Colorado, and then we attempt to bring them here to Colorado and MHLRM, find them an amazing family and give them a new outlook on life.
