About Us
Golden Retriever Rescue of Houston (GRRH) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) founded in June 2003. We are an all-volunteer group dedicated to the rescue and placement of Golden Retrievers in the greater Houston, Texas area. We do not have a physical location but rather operate our mission out of volunteers’ homes.

The organization was established out of our deep love for Golden Retrievers and the desire to help the many homeless Goldens find homes where they will be well cared for and loved as part of the family.

We work to rehabilitate Goldens with physical or behavioral needs prior to placement. Our ultimate goal is to ensure that the dog is placed in the best home possible for both the dog and adopter.

There are many ways you can help GRRH’s Goldens. For example, fostering is a tremendously rewarding way to help the wonderful Goldens that need a safe haven in which to stay until they find their forever homes!

We cannot do this alone. You are the ones who truly make the difference!

Thank you for taking your time to learn more about GRRH. We hope to have the opportunity to meet many of you in the days ahead as we strive to find forever homes for the beautiful and loving Goldens that we cherish so much.
Mission Statement

Golden Retriever Rescue of Houston is a non-profit organization dedicated to the rescue, foster care, welfare and placement of Golden Retrievers in the Houston, Texas area. GRRH is an all-volunteer group that provides temporary shelter, quality medical care and permanent homes for unwanted, abused or abandoned Golden Retrievers.

We seek to:

  • Reduce the number of unwanted Golden Retrievers in the community by ensuring that each Golden Retriever will be spayed or neutered prior to adoption
  • Give preference in our program to Goldens facing certain death in institutions (e.g., shelters)
  • Cooperate with state and local authorities in the enforcement of laws related to the welfare of dogs
  • Protect Golden Retrievers from careless breeding and educate the public about this issue
