Giving Homeless Goldens a
Second Chance at a Loving Life

Your Donations Matter More Than Ever!

Our donors are the lifeline of the rescue and we can only continue our mission of rescuing homeless Goldens with the help of our amazing volunteers and supporters.

In the past the "turn-key" dog coming into rescue was common. Over the years, they have become the exception rather than the rule. Last year we had an increase in dogs coming into rescue with extraordinary medical issues and your donations helped us treat those dogs so they could be adopted into loving homes. This year we are seeing an increasing number of dogs coming into rescue with behavioral issues that require extensive training so they can become adoptable. This training must be done by experienced, qualified professionals and is expensive.

GGR is committed to providing the necessary care, both medical and behavioral, for our Goldens so that they can have their second chance at a loving life.

Thank you for your continued generosity and support!

Foster Homes Needed!

Funds are critical to rescuing dogs in need, but fosters are just as critical – without them – rescues would not be possible. So, if you, or someone you know, would be willing to become a GGR foster, please contact us. You will be joining an incredible team, saving some amazing dogs, and filling your heart with so much love! The Featured Goldens below are just three sweet GGR dogs in loving, foster homes awaiting their forever homes.


We are in the process of expanding our foster network so we can always be ready to place a homeless dog. Please visit the Foster page for information on fostering, complete the foster application and send in.

Will you open your heart and home to a Golden in need? If so, we are waiting to hear from you!
