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.
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.

Adoption Pending!
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.

If you are looking to adopt a wonderful pair of goldens, Lucy and Linus are for you. It would be great if they could stay together. They can, however, be adopted separately.
Lucy is a petite 3 to 4 year old girl. She is a little shy but warms up quickly and has great house manners. Lucy has been spayed and up to date on all her shots, but, like her brother, she is heartworm positive. She would love to find a loving family to get her started on her heartworm treatment too.

Linus is a very sweet 7 year old boy who was picked up as a stray with his younger sister, Lucy - just before Hurricane Florence. Grateful Goldens was contacted to see if we could get them out of the shelter before the storm hit. Luckily, there was a foster available who was going to ride out the hurricane and was happy to take them. Linus is now up to date on his shots but is heartworm positive and needs to be neutered. He has started his heartworm treatment and Linus would love for him to go to a family who can help him through the treatment.
JoJo came to Grateful Goldens when her owner moved across the country and could not take JoJo with her. JoJo is an absolute delight as she is very well mannered and gentle. She loves other dogs, cats, and playing. In typical Golden fashion, she adores giving hugs and how about that smile? JoJo loves car rides too. In another words, JoJo is a just about perfect.

JoJo is spayed, up to date on her shots and heartworm negative. After losing her family, this 7 year young beautiful girl is ready to meet her new family!

JoJo is being fostered in the Charleston area.
Yogi is a lucky little guy because he was on his last day at a shelter and GGR stepped up after receiving multiple requests to step in to save this sweet boy. When he arrived he was so matted that the best thing was to shave him. Cute now, we are sure he will be quite handsome when his new coat comes in. Yogi is a small Golden mix (about 53 lbs.), who loves to snuggle. He is about 8 years old, heartworm negative and up to date on his shots. Yogi would be best as an only dog – so he can have you all to himself! Is there a family out there who loves to snuggle? Come meet Yogi!

Yogi is being fostered in the Bluffton area.

Izzy is a sweet young golden mix – really still a puppy at heart at about 11months. She was surrendered by her owner who could no longer care for her. What an angelic face while napping! But turns out she is an angel when awake too. Izzy is a real sweetheart who loves other dogs and children. This beautiful blond girl is heartworm negative, spayed and up to date on her shots. Maybe Izzy was dreaming of her new family. We know she is waiting for her very own home and is bound to fill hearts with love!

Izzy is being fostered in Charleston.

Introducing Ross and Rita who came into GGR from a rural Georgia shelter. Sadly, their owner could not take care of these two precious dogs. Ross and Rita have been in a foster home since the end of August, along with several other dogs. They are about 2 years old, mainly housebroken and beautifully crate trained. They have learned to take treats, climb stairs and are now becoming curious about a lot of things. They have been brought up to date on their shots, spayed and neutered but both have a light dose of heartworms and need to start treatments so we are looking for new homes for them. They will each do best in homes with experienced dog owners who can work with them to continue their socialization, introducing them to play, walks and the world; preferably with another dog to ease their adjustment to a new home. If you are interested in seeing one of these adorable pups blossom under your guidance, please let us know because Ross and Rita are waiting!
Dusty Has His
Forever Home!
Imagine Lucy and her brother outside trying to take care of each other as a hurricane was approaching. Their first miracle was that we rescued them. Their second would be that they would be adopted together and could live happily ever after with some wonderful family!

Lucy and Linus are being fostered in the Florence area.
JoJo Has His Furever Home!
Izzy Has Her Furever Home!
