Please Note: If you are interested in possibly adopting one of these wonderful Goldens we require a completed  adoption application (found on the adoption page) to start the process.

Thank-you and we look forward to working with you to find the right Golden for your family.

Misty has had a rough life.  She showed up at a woman's farm, pregnant and no place to go.  The woman took her in and helped deliver her babies and cared for the little family.  She found homes for the babies, and planned to keep Misty because she was such a sweet girl.  Unfortunately, retrievers and birds (in this case chickens) don't always mix, and Misty liked to retrieve them from the chicken pen.  Chickens notwithstanding, this is such a sweet girl!  She gives kisses, loves to cuddle, and is even nurturing to the other dogs in her foster home!!

Unfortunately, she is heartworm positive and when she heals from her spay, we will begin her treatment.  We think she is about 7 years old, and is now up to date on shots and has been spay.  Looking for love and kisses?  This is your girl!! Misty is being fostered in the Coastal Georgia area.

Ranger: Ranger's owners asked us to find him a good home because of his flea allergy being aggravated where they were living, as well as his mom's increased allergy issues.  While it broke their heart to let him go, they knew it was the best for him.  He is fine with everyone, including children, other dogs, and usually indifferent to cats.  This beautiful boy is 5 years old, up-to-date on vaccinations and heartworm negative.  He has excellent housemanners, knows lots of commands and his foster has been working with him on a lead.   His bags are packed and he's ready to roll!!

Ranger is being fostered in the Coastal Georgia area.

Barney: If you love goldens, but your lifestyle does not permit you to have a full size golden, Barney is the dog for you. Barney has all of the golden attributes, but in a small, apartment or condo sized package. Barney is only 1 ½ years old and would do best in an active home with a gentle, but firm hand to smooth his rough edges. He does will with other dogs and has charmed his foster family. Barney is Heartworm positive, but will begin his treatment soon. Barney is being fostered in the Charleston area.
Sam is a very active 8 1/2 year old blonde boy who was tearfully surrendered by his family because of a lifestyle change. To help transition him into a new forever home, GGRLC took advantage of a 3 week obedience training opportunity. This intensive program has prepared Sam to be an even better dog and his training will follow him into his new home. He is UTD on shots, is HW Negative. Sam has graduated and has his bags packed. Sam is being fostered in the Charleston area.

Gunner is a sweet 3 year boy. When Gunner was surrendered to Grateful Goldens he had lost almost all of his hair due to severe allergies. Grateful Goldens and some wonderful fosters spent 8 months diagnosing his allergies and helping him to recover. He is now on shots to desensitize him to his allergies and his hair is almost completely grown back. Gunner is ready for a home that will continue is monthly treatments and help him complete his recovery and become the golden he was meant to be.
Gunner is being fostered in the Charleston area.

This little guy was found scrounging around a gas station - the attendant said he'd been hanging around for several days.  He was extremely skinny and appeared to be looking for food.  When a good Samaritan opened her car door, he jumped right in, as if to say "will you take me home with you?"  He was covered in fleas and ticks, but still as sweet as could be.  After a bath to get rid of the fleas and ticks, they tried to feed him a little bit, but he seemed to choke on it and threw it back up.  They contacted us for help and we of course authorized veterinary care for him. 

Lani is a sweet 6 year old girl who came to GGR when her family had to move across the country. Lani is Heartworm negative and now up to date on her shots. She loves people, gets along well with other dogs and children. She loves to run on the beach. She is being evaluated for possible hip problems, but would love to find a family willing to help her though any problems we find. Lani is currently in the Charleston area.
Treasure and Diesel

Treasure, 14 and Diesel, 12, are very sweet girls who are mother and daughter. They came into rescue due to a change in their family's lifestyle. Since they are bonded, we would like to try and keep them together.  We are working with them to see if they could be adopted separately. They have both been vetted, brought current on shots and are in pretty good shape for their age, although both need to put on some weight. Treasure is H/W negative, but Diesel is H/W positive. and will begin her treatment soon. Treasure and Diesel are being fostered in the Charleston area.

Tyler is going to make someone a great snuggle buddy, maybe even a lap dog!  We don't know his background as he was found in a crate outside a Columbia, SC area shelter where he spent seven weeks waiting for someone to come get him.  The staff fell in love with him and when GGR stepped up to respond to the National Golden Retriever group's plea to rescue him, he was placed into a foster home.  He is a small, 42 lbs, young (2 years) male mix with a dark red coat who does allow his attention to be grabbed with the spotting of a squirrel.  He will sit quietly at your side on the sofa or go off to his cushy crate, if the sofa is occupied.    Tyler will do best as an only dog as he really wants the human companionship.  His house manners are fine, he will sit and give you a 'high five' when requested.  He is up to date on shots, neutered and has his bags packed.
Mason arrived into Rescue as a scared little fellow, pulled from a rural South Carolina shelter. He was very afraid and had to be carried through doors and placed in the back of the car. After about an hour on the road, he calmed down and was taking treats.  The vet's visit went well, he allowed them to poke and prod him without reacting with any fear.  The vet believes Mason to be 1.5 to 3 years old and in good health.  He is Heartworm Positive and will be neutered as soon as his Heartworm work up has been completed. He has settled in beautifully at his foster home, and is showing very nice house manners.  He is enjoying lots of food, toys and love.

Mason is being fostered in the Myrtle Beach area.
Clifford is a golden/springer spaniel mix, is about 8 months old. He was found as a puppy on a golf course. A family took him in and nurtured him, but wanting only the best for him, came to conclusion that finding new a home for the Clifford was the best option . He is very sweet and loves attention. He has good house manners and although still a puppy, when he gets the urge to chew will usually find one of his toys. He is crate trained, but has lots of puppy energy so will need a family with the time and energy to match. Clifford is on the smaller side, currently weighing about 40 lbs. He is neutered, up to date on shots and has his bags packed ready to go to his new home.

Phoenix is an 18-month-old Golden mix, possibly mixed with a Collie.  He's tall and statuesque with a great personality.  Changes in life circumstances caused his family to have to give him up to GGRLC.  He's sweet and friendly, walks fairly well on a lead, has lived with a cat, and knows some basic commands.  He's smart, learns quickly, and loves to play.  If you're looking for a great companion, who can keep up with your physical activities or just lie around the house with you, look no further.  Phoenix could be the perfect dog for you.  He is up to date on shots, neutered, and heartworm negative. 

Phoenix is being fostered in the Charleston area. 

Sky is a 9-month-old Golden Retriever/Border Collie mix.  He's a small boy weighing just under 30 lbs.  Sky's previous family asked GGRLC to find him another home because they were unable to provide him with the time and attention he needs.  Sky's foster mom reports that he has settled in nicely, is very well-behaved in the house, travels well, and is house trained.  He's a very sweet, loving boy, who knows some basic commands.  Sky would love a family who has time to play with him and teach him.  He's lived with children and other dogs.  We're not sure about cats.  Up to date on shots, neutered, and HW negative, Sky is ready for his furever home. 

Sky is being fostered in the Charleston area.

Toler (pronounced Toe-ler) is eleven years old, but acts like a much younger dog.  He is a beautiful boy with lots of energy, who loves everyone he meets.  He is used to living with another dog and a cat, but is content being an only dog as long as he gets plenty of attention and exercise.  His mom is taking a job overseas and will not be able to take him with her.  She has had him since he was a puppy and has reluctantly asked Grateful Goldens to find him a loving home.  Toler is healthy, up-to-date on shots, heartworm negative, and neutered.  He touches the hearts of everyone who meets him.  If you have the time to give him lots of attention and the energy to give him lots of exercise, send us your application today.  This beauty won't be here long.   

Toler is being fostered in the Charleston area.

Chilli is a beautiful 11 year old girl who was surrendered to the rescue when her family was moving and no reason was given why she couldn’t move along with them.  Part of their family since she was 5 weeks old, this girl lived outside all of her life except for one day when she was recovering from her spay.  Needless to say, this gal is quickly adjusting to being an inside dog as you can see by the pictures.  Chilli is up to date on her vaccines and now on flea and heartworm preventative and in good health.  Chilli was found to be heartworm positive and she has started her heartworm treatment.  This is a sweet and gentle girl who is great with other dogs, loves everyone she meets, and adores children.  Now that she has had a taste of the Golden life, she has her bags packed looking forward to continuing it in her forever home.  Chilli is being fostered in the Grand Strand Area.
Lucas is a very sweet, gentle 6 year old boy who was picked up as a stray and was close to being euthanized before GGRLC was able to get him.  He has had a tough life, with some injury evident in one leg and bird shot is embedded under his skin based on x-rays.  In spite of all this, Lucas is an incredibly loving boy who gets along great with people, children, other dogs and cats.  He is very laid back and content to be a house dog, although he loves his walks and time smelling all the outdoor smells on his screened porch.  He would make a great dog for an active retired family or a family that is looking for an older gentle dog that does not need much excercise. Because he loves to chase squirrels, birds and wander, a fenced yard would be best for him. As a result of his leg injury, he has some arthritis in one leg so a home without lots of stairs would be best even though he is doing well in his current foster home which is three stories.  He would love to find a family willing to foster with intent if he is not finished with his heartworm treatment or adopt him after he has finished his treatment. 

Lucas is being fostered in the Charleston area.

UPDATE: Lani's hip problems turned out to be much more extensive than we anticipated.  She has been diagnosed with bilateral medial patella laxations (MPLs), a left cranial cruciate ligament (CCL) tear, and bilateral hip dysplasia.  The cost to give this wonderful girl the quality life she deserves is between $4,000 and $5,000.  Although she has hip dysplasia, her biggest problem are her back knees which need to be rebuilt.  Lani has had surgery on one of her kness and she will be scheduled for surgery on her other knee shortly.  Golden Angels are needed to help with the cost of her surgery.  Please donate by clicking on the button below.  Thank you and Lani sends Golden kisses!!!!

Stormy is a big sweetie. His Dad died after having him all his life and the son ended up with him. Unfortunately the son didn't take care of him and neighbors would feed him. He ended up with Grateful Golden Rescue and we have been fostering him. He's more Yellow lab than golden (we don't hold that against him ;)) and he has a gentle personality. Loves walks, hanging out in a chair or next to you on the couch, car rides are #1 on his list, checking out the yard, great with kids, other dogs and our cat. He likes to tell you a story if you want him to. Someone who is looking for a laid back, older guy (he is about 8 1/2) who would make a great companion ...Stormy is the one.
The "K" Pups
These sweet girls were found when they were about 6 weeks old on the side of the road in rural Georgia. Although they did not have a good start in life, they have thrived in their foster home. They are very sweet, loving and friendly Their foster mom has worked very hard with them and they are now crate trained and mostly housebroken. They are available for adoption now.

The pups are being fostered in the Charleston area.
Chad is a sweet 1 year old golden/chessie boy who was surrendered to a shelter by his family. Friends of the shelter contacted Grateful Goldens and asked if we could help. Although still a puppy, Chad quickly won the hearts of his foster family and anyone who meets him. Chad would do best with a family that can give him exercise to burn off some of his puppy energy and is willing to continue working with his training.

Chad is being fostered in the Florence area.
Brady is a 10 month old golden boy who was tearfully given up by his family because the older dog in the household would not accept him. Unfortunately, Brady is now afraid of other dogs and will need a family willing to work to get him properly socialized. Brady is a big cuddler and LOVES to be petted. He'll come up and put his head on your lap and ask for pets. He's still got puppy in him and his energy probably wouldn't be best for small children, but 10 or up should be fine. He does fine when his foster family isn't home and they say he is a sweetie and super responsive to commands.

Brady is being fostered in the Charleston area.
Holly is a beautiful, approximately 5 year old girl who was recently a mother.  She was one of 3 sweet but confused adult golden girls, used for breeding then abandoned.  GGR was called by a concerned neighbor but her pups were not located.  Holly is doing well in her foster home, only wanting a human's hand on her but is very inquisitive about her new surroundings.  She is housebroken and likes chew toys.
She was a dear at her vet visit, as the doctor poked and prodded her.  His best guess is that she had puppies about 6 weeks ago.  She is still lactating and uneasy with young male dogs but that concern should disappear after her hormones level out.  She is now up to date on all her shots, is HW negative and has been given monthly HW and flea preventative.  Her spay will be scheduled within the next couple of weeks. 
Holly would appreciate a family who will let her be with them, walk her and play with her.  She will also adore quiet time, just lying by your side while you work or read.  If you have a desire for a soon to be Velcro girl, Holly is a great candidate!

Harlow is a sweet 3 year old golden girl whose family tearfully surrendered her to Grateful Goldens because they felt they could not provide the life she deserved She has settled in nicely with her foster family. Her foster mom says she is She is super sweet and loves any type of attention. She is crate trained, Heartworm Negative and up to date on her shots. Harlow has her bags packed and is ready to go.

Harlow is being fostered in the Charleston Area
Sonny is a sweet, handsome 7 year old Goldendoodle who was reluctantly offered to us by his young owner.  Circumstances had left the two of them in a living situation that was not good for Sonny and it was better for him to find another home where he would have plenty of room.Sonny charms everyone who meets this gentle giant, he is a big boy.  His foster mom and dad take him everywhere, play with him and says he acts much younger than his stated age.  He has been seen by the specialist, regarding his hip dysplasia, who does not feel that it diminish his ability to get around.  He is currently on some minor pain medication and an exercise program to strengthen his muscles in his back legs. He is ready for his 'furever' home, with his toys packed and his long legs ready to run to you. Sonny is being fostered in Columbia.
