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. 
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.
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.

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!
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.
Colt is one handsome fellow! It’s hard to believe that he suddenly found himself in a shelter – but that’s where Grateful Goldens found him and quickly went to get him. It took him a little while to settle into his foster home, but that’s not unusual when a dog had a home and then finds themselves in a cage. Now he plays constantly with his foster sibling. Because of this, we think Colt would love to be in a home with another dog to play with. Colt is about 3 years old, is up to date on his shots and is heartworm negative. Another plus is that he has very good house manners. But like all dogs who have been bounced around, his new family should give him some time to adjust to his new forever home. Colt is bound to be a very special addition to some lucky family and he is waiting.

Colt is currently being fostered in the coastal Georgia area.


Take a look at this face! When you talk to this loveable boy, he tilts his head as if to say, “Really?”

Buddy is a wonderful, 8 year “young” fellow whose life changed dramatically when his elderly Dad could no longer care for him.

But this handsome boy with the sweet face (and personality!) is doing his best to adjust as he waits for his new forever home. After three weeks, his foster Dad has fallen for him and vice versa as Buddy follows him wherever he goes.

Blaze was first seen by Grateful Goldens the day after he was picked up by Animal Control. Such a great looking dog we were amazed no one claimed him and we were at the shelter when his hold was up. His first two days were with a foster who had 3 dogs and a cat and Blaze was fine with all of them. He will go in a crate – only if it is left open, but he’s great in the house so he really doesn’t need one. Blaze is a super friendly, handsome boy who loves going on walks to meet people and other dogs. He has not been around children so may be best with a family with older children. His fosters have been teaching him quite a few commands so he will be ready to impress his new family. Vet said Blaze is close to 2 years old and definitely acts like a puppy – but a good puppy! He is heartworm negative, neutered, up to date on shots. Blaze loved hanging out at Pet Portraits with Santa – now he is waiting to hang out with his new family – maybe even before Christmas!

Blaze is currently being fostered in the Myrtle Beach area.
Wrigley suddenly found himself without a home when he was dropped off at a rural shelter. As soon as we learned he was there, we went to get him as these shelters are usually low on space. Wrigley is a sweet boy who is about 7. He gets along with his foster siblings and, although he is curious about the resident cat, he has never bothered it. Wrigley has “indicated to us” that his ideal home would be a peaceful place with an older dog for companionship. He is heartworm negative and up to date on his shots. This great boy has good house manners and bonds with people quickly. All he wants to do is be with his very own loving family. And that family is sure to make Wrigley a very happy dog.

Wrigley is being fostered in Charleston.

Archer, a golden mix, is another young dog we rescued from a shelter. This 2 year old has settled in well in his foster home. Archer gets along with everyone including dogs and children. As a youngster, he has a lot of energy – perfect for an active family. But Archer is also very affectionate and loves to snuggle – great for cold winter nights! He rides well in the car and loves to wrestle with his foster brother. Up to date on shots and heartworm negative, Archer is great little dog and is ready to go. Matter of fact, his bags are packed and he is ready to meet his new family.

Archer is currently being fostered in the Charleston area.

As you can see, we have five wonderful dogs who have been waiting for a new family for a while and now, just before the Holidays, we are adding five more. If you have been thinking about adding a new best friend to your family ~ perhaps in the Season of Giving, you would consider giving one of these wonderful dogs a new forever home.
