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!

GGR is a 501(c)(3) organization and, as such, all donations are tax deductable to the fullest extent by law. 
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.
Adoption Pending!!
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.

Aidan is a very sweet 2 year old boy who was picked up as a stray. And once again – no one came to get him! When the shelter contacted us, we immediately went and picked him up. Some other traits of Aidan’s are – he’s handsome and he's great with other dogs and children. Sounds like a perfect addition to any family. He is up to date on shots and heartworm negative. Aidan has his bags packed and is ready to go!

Aidan is being fostered in the Florence area.

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.
We’re always on the look-out for a dog who needs rescue, so when we saw this cutie posted as a stray, we contacted the SC shelter. Still on hold, they had been told the owner would come and get her – but they never did! Poor little Amie, who is only one, was suddenly in a scary shelter and homeless. But not for long as we rushed to get her. Since she arrived at GGR, this petite, 24 lb. Golden mix, has already won our hearts--everyone at the vet’s office and her foster family. Amie is so adorable playing with her “sister” who just lays on the floor while she climbs all over her. If not playing, as you can see in the first photo, Amie stays close to her. She stays close to her foster Mom and Dad too. She is up to date on vaccines and is heartworm negative. 

Amie is a sweetheart in capital letters. Homeless at such a young age, she deserves a special family who will love and care for her. We know Amie will bring years of joy to some lucky family. Perhaps they will have another dog who will be her new, forever playmate too!

Amie is being fostered in Florence, SC.

Ruby is a typical golden who loves to be hugged and snuggled. Right now, she is missing her family due to a change in their lifestyle. Tearfully, they surrendered her to GGR knowing that we would find a perfect home for her. Ruby is about 10 years old and is on the smaller size. Some might call her petite. She loves getting good belly rubs, is extremely sweet and does well with other dogs. And look at that angelic face! Ruby hasn’t been fully vetted yet, so is not quite ready for her forever home, but she more than willing to meet potential families who would like to give this pretty girl her new forever home.

​Ruby is being fostered in the Charleston area.
