Golden Rescue™ is one of the largest single breed rescue groups in Canada. Since 1990, Golden Rescue™ has found homes for over 1,800 abandoned, unwanted or displaced Golden Retrievers. Golden Rescue™ is funded entirely by donations and is 100% volunteer run.
Golden Rescue™ is a non-profit organization managed by a dedicated volunteer board of directors, who are all business people passionate about Golden Retrievers.
All of their Golden Retrievers go to experienced foster homes where they assess the dog’s behaviour and provide all the veterinary care, treatment, rehabilitation, love, and attention they need prior to matching them with a new family.
Available Golden Retrievers
To be considered as a candidate for a Golden Rescue™ dog, you must be willing to:
- return the dog to Golden Rescue™ if, for any reason, you can no longer keep it
- keep the rescue dog solely as a companion and household pet
- keep the Golden in good health and give it good care. This includes providing all necessary and preventative veterinary treatment as established by Golden Rescue™. Proper care of a dog includes ensuring that it always has fresh water, quality feed, appropriate sleeping quarters, proper grooming, exercise, and attention.
- have available a securely fenced yard or appropriate dog run. Tying dogs outside to a post or clothesline or promising to always accompany your dog are not acceptable substitutes.
Fill in online application. If selected, a home visit will be required.
