Labrador Rescue South East & Central is a registered charity that has cared for and re-homed Labradors since 1996. We provide help and ongoing support to all new Adoptees and existing Labrador owners.

What We Do

Very often dogs find themselves homeless through no fault of their own. Factors such as domestic crisis, bereavement, ill treatment and financial problems can all lead to dogs needing new homes. If you are in the unfortunate position that you are unable to keep your dog, you need to make sure it is re-homed professionally, and that its long term future is assured.

We have the experience to find the right home for your dog. Our helpers visit every dog in their own home and make a full written report about the dog to ensure that we find the right forever home.

Our team of hard working volunteers are dedicated to finding loving permanent homes for dogs in need.

Eleven co-ordinators, covering an area from the South and East coasts right up to the Midlands, ably assisted by over 100 helpers carefully assess each dog and potential home to ensure matches are a success.

To minimise stress, each dog is collected and taken directly to its new home where possible. If a dog needs interim care we use one of our excellent foster homes or kennels.

Labrador Rescue South East & Central relies heavily on donations and can only continue to operate with financial help. Please click on our button to see the many ways you can get involved.

In 1996 Labrador rescue groups operating in the South East of England pooled their resources and amalgamated to form Labrador Rescue South East. Charity status was obtained and a set of guidelines was drawn up based on previous experience. In 2001, the charity changed its name to Labrador South East & Central (LRSEC) to give a clearer indication of the vast area it covers.

LRSEC currently has eleven trustees and a management team of coordinators covering all south-eastern counties of England, the Midlands including Birmingham and Nottingham, but subject to available helper support.
