GRRH is dedicated to the welfare of the Goldens that we rescue. As volunteers, our greatest reward is to see rescued dogs placed with a new home where they will be safe, happy and loved forever.

To be considered as an adoptive home, you must meet the Adoption Requirements, pay the Adoption Application Processing donation of $15 and complete the Adoption Application.

As this is a volunteer run organization it could take up to 7-14 days to process your application depending on the time it takes to verify vet and personal references.

We want our applicants to know that rescued dogs come from a variety of backgrounds. Some will be older dogs, including well-behaved and cared for pets whose owners have died or become ill. However, many dogs will require behavioral work due to a lack of training, neglect or abuse in the dog's previous environment. A patient and loving owner can make all the difference. The rewards of seeing such Goldens become the loyal and happy pets they were meant to be is unforgettable.

The adoption donation for a GRRH Golden Retriever is $300. This donation helps to pay the expenses incurred for the dog's medical treatment and care.

GRRH Goldens will be spayed or neutered before the adoption is finalized.

Once approved, your application is valid for one year.
