Thank you for your interest in adopting one of our wonderful Goldens. Due to an abundance of applications, Grateful Goldens Rescue only accepts applications in the South Carolina areas of the Grand Strand, Lowcountry, Columbia and of Coastal Georgia. In addition, we require a completed adoption application (found on the adoption page) to start the process. After that, we will contact you. We look forward to working with you to find the right Golden for your family!

Daisy is a sweet 3 year old girl whose mother was a golden and came to Grateful Goldens Rescue when she was pregnant. Daisy was adopted by a family who loved her and worked to give her a wonderful life. Unfortunately, Daisy was on the shy side so an active family did not suit her. The family asked that we bring her back into rescue and find a home better suited to her personality. Daisy has good house manners, is crate trained and loves to go on walks. A calm home with another dog would be great for Daisy.

Dakota found herself at a Georgia animal shelter, surrendered because of separation anxiety. Fortunately, a GGRLC representative was told about her situation and she was able to join our Rescue. She is in a great foster home where she has not exhibited any signs of separation anxiety. She does adore attention and companionship. 

Dakota is a potentially beautiful (she has been shaved and her coat is not yet grown back) and an appropriately active 7 year old. She has been spayed, is up to date on all her shots and fully housebroken. 

Dakota is currently being fostered in the southern Georgia area.

Recently, a Georgia shelter sent a plea to rescues to assist in getting this gorgeous red boy into the safety of a rescue group. Our incredible volunteers responded immediately to bring him to Grateful Goldens Rescue. It seems the owner had left Bailey and two other dogs at the shelter in favor of getting some new puppies. Imagine poor Bailey’s confusion and sadness to suddenly find himself in a shelter. As is customary, we took him to our vet for a wellness check-up. Unfortunately, he did test positive for heartworms but is now current on all vaccines and is neutered. This “big boy”, at 95 pounds, has a sweet disposition and is now adjusting to all the unexpected changes in his life.

He is in a foster home in the Charleston area to be evaluated for his heartworm treatment. We hope it won’t be too long before 6-8 year-old Bailey will be in a new forever home.

Maverick was one of GGR's "N" puppies last summer. Facing life changes that caused them to be away from their house long hours and an expensive surgery, the young couple who adopted him agonized over what was best for Maverick. After much soul searching they decided to return him and let us find him another family who would love him as they do and provide the time and attention they can't. 

Maverick is 9 months old. He had shoulder surgery a few weeks ago and is recuperating nicely. He will soon be running and playing as he hasn't been able to do for several months. The vet assures us that he should have no further issues with his shoulder. Maverick is up to date on shots, neutered, and one of the sweetest, most loving boys you could ever want. He knows many basic obedience commands and learns quickly. Maverick gets along well with his foster brother and sisters. He hasn't been "cat-scanned" yet, but should welcome any furry siblings. The few times he was around children he did very well. If you're looking for a great companion who will bring joy and love to your life, fill out an application for this Golden/Lab mix.  

Maverick is being fostered in the Charleston area. 

They say good things come in small packages and certainly this applies to Charles. This five year old boy is about as close as you can come to a true miniature golden. He is a golden/cocker mix and weighs about 45 pounds. Charles loves everyone and likes nothing better than to sit by your side and be petted. This super little guy also has great house manners, so he can be left alone in the house. Charles is up to date on his shots, but he is Heartworm positive. Currently, living in one of our foster homes, Charles is available to go to a family who would foster him with the “intent to adopt”, so that they could see him through his heartworm treatment. If you are that family – let us hear from you!

Oakley is a sweet, 7 year old Golden mix whose whole life changed when her human passed away. All too often, when this happens and there are no family members who can take on the responsibility, the dogs are left at a shelter with no guarantee that they will ever leave. Oakley was lucky because we were called and quickly said, “Yes – we’ll take her!” This cute girl has a lot going for her – and is bound to impress the lucky family who adopts her. She is spayed, heartworm negative, microchipped and up to date on all her shots. She is good with other dogs and has great house manners. Oakley loves to cuddle and is just happy to be by your side. If you are looking for a perfect little girl with lots of love to give – let us know. Oakley, with the big smile, is waiting for her new family!

Oakley is being fostered in Charleston.

It always amazes us that these beautiful and gentle Goldens can be picked up as strays and no one comes to claim them. But this is what happened to Belle. She ended up in a rural Georgia shelter and as soon as she was available GGR rescued her. Now in a foster home, Belle is 2 or 3 years old and moderately active. She is good with other dogs and loves people. Because she loves to play, a home with another playful dog would be ideal for this pretty girl. Belle is up to date on shots and heartworm negative. Although Belle is active, she could stand to lose a little weight – so a playmate might be just what she needs. Left on her own, Belle is now safe, and is waiting for a loving, forever home.

Belle is being fostered in the Coastal Georgia area.

Dusty is an adorable Golden mix, about 5 years old and on the small side at 65 lbs. He was surrendered to us by his family after he incurred a traumatic injury during a thunderstorm. This experience only increased his fear of thunderstorms and they were concerned for his safety. Since then Dusty recovered from most of his injuries and seems to have put his past behind him. He was adopted through GGR, but the family was unable to keep him so we are happy to have him back until his forever home can be found. Dusty would do best as the only dog with someone who is home most of the day since he does have bouts of separation anxiety. He is neutered, heartworm negative and up to date on his shots. Dusty can best be described as a love muffin. One look at his face and we think you will agree he looks quite loveable. If you are looking for love – Dusty could be your answer and he’s waiting!

Dusty is being fostered in Charleston.

Parker has had a rough time in his young life! You may remember him – his mom, Penny, a pure bred Golden, was a stray who was finally taken to a shelter where she promptly gave birth to 13 puppies. Six survived including Parker. GGR took them right after their birth and all were adopted. But due to a lifestyle change, the family who adopted Parker decided they could no longer provide him with the home he deserved. Born in March, Parker is still a puppy. This healthy boy weighs about 34 lbs. and is waiting for his new home. Parker is a beautiful, sweet boy who gets along with other dogs and children. After a rough beginning, Parker deserves a family who will love him for years to come. He’s waiting, but we hope not for too long!

Take a look at this sweet, happy face! Riley, just 1 ½, has a tale to tell. First, he was born with a deformed front paw but that didn’t slow this puppy down. He was ready to live life to its fullest, even got a home. When that didn’t work out he was advertised on Facebook as “Free”. Dogs advertised as “Free” can end up in very bad, even tragic situations. Thankfully, one of our volunteers saw the Facebook ad and got him to GGR and safety.

Now Riley is looking for a family who loves to be loved because he is what is referred to as a velcro dog. Riley is a little shy but is becoming less so. It appears that he has adapted to the deformity but he does limp a little when walking on pavement. He is up to date on his shots, is heartworm negative and neutered. Young, healthy, and handsome, Riley is due for some good luck and promises to be a loving addition to some lucky family. And it appears he enjoys rides in the car. Will your car be the next one to give Riley a ride to his forever home?
