Grateful Goldens Rescue's mission is to help Golden Retrievers in need. We recognize that things can and do change in people's lives and you may be faced with no other choice except to find a new home for your Golden. For many people, this is an extremely upseting and often traumatic time. If you are facing this decision, please click here firstname.lastname@example.org and one of Grateful Goldens' Intake volunteers will contact you.
We realize that relinquishing your Golden may be extremely difficult. You can feel confident that a GGRLC adoption gives him or her the VERYbest chance to live out a full and enjoyable life with the best possible family, matched to his or her needs. We follow up on our adopted Goldens routinely. If at any time in the Golden's life the adopting family cannot keep him, our adoption agreement requires that they return him to GGRLC.
While the information we ask you may seem very detailed, we want to provide the new family with as much information as you can provide. We'd like to know your Golden's favorite words, toys or games. We've found that having this information can ease the transition in a new home because we can then provide familiar, trusted things. We do not simply find your dog a new home but find them a new family to be part of..
