One of the easiest ways to find a rescued Labradoodle for adoption in Ohio is to search on adoption sites such as Petfinder.com or AdoptAPet.com. These sites allow you to customize your search by breed and location.
When searching adoption websites, it is helpful to search for Labradors and poodles as well because some rescues may list a Labradoodle as a Lab mix or poodle mix. It can also be helpful to call local shelters and ask them to notify you if a Labradoodle becomes available. Many rescues are willing to do this, although some may not be able to due to a lack of resources. It is a good idea to call periodically to remind them.
Contacting Labradoodle breeders in Ohio is also a good idea. Sometimes,breeders have older dogs that they are retiring and looking to place in a good home or puppies with special needs. Good breeders also take adult dogs back if their owners can no longer keep them and may make those dogs available for adoption.
Contacting a Labradoodle rescue can also be helpful. Look for ones in Ohio, but consider contacting ones outside of the state as well. Many breed rescues are willing to arrange transportation to qualified adopters if the situation warrants. They may also be wiling to notify you if they are alerted to a Labradoodle in need of a home in Ohio.
