Rescue & Adopt Golden Retrievers
Welcome golden retrievers with an open heart & you will be loved unconditionally.
Our Virtual Giviing Tree Was a Huge Success!
Thank you so much for your generosity!
We hope you all enjoyed watching as our Giving Tree was decorated over the past few weeks. We want to thank all of you "Decorators" for your generosity. We raised a total of $15,780! Your messages of encouragement have been very heartwarming.
If you weren't able to donate in time to decorate the Giving Tree, please feel free to start off the New Year by using our Donate Now or Give Valerie buttons.
Who is Valerie? She is a female golden found in early December abandoned on a snowy street of Beijing. We don't know her history only that she was emaciated, had a large hole in one ear and a punctured bladder. GBR paid for several surgeries and we weren't sure she was going to make it. After many, many days on antibiotics and loads of TLC, she appears to be improving every day. If you would like to donated directly to help pay her vet bills and aftercare, you can do so using the Give Valerie button below.
Happy New Year to all you wonderful, wonderful golden lovers!
Stranger in a Strange Land by Jeanne Spreen Three days, three weeks, three months. This familiar adage suggests how long it takes for a newly rehomed dog to acclimate to his new environment. While catchy, and a good reminder to give new dogs a break early on, its simplified timeline often gives us false expectations….
When life gives you lemons, make lemonade! We are so grateful for our GBR volunteers and their abilities to adapt and change course. This spring, our traveling volunteers did just that when original plans fell through and they had to devise a Plan B. Plan A was to drive to Chicago to rescue 10 golden retrievers…
