GOLDEN RETRIEVER RESCUE INFORMATION
Almost every animal rescue organization has a place near and dear to my heart, and anyone who knows me knows that I have rescued abandoned animals all of my life, just as my mother did, and as my sister does. Two of these wonderful organizations for golden retrievers are the Triad Golden Retriever Rescue, located in Greensboro, NC, and their sister organization, the Neuse River Golden Retriever Rescue, located in the Raleigh-Durham/Chapel Hill area. These wonderful volunteers work tirelessly to rescue and rehabiliate golden retrievers for adoption to forever homes. It takes a lot of effort from a large number of dedicated people and a lot of money as well. Most of these rescued dogs need some kind of medical attention and the vet bills are astromomical, and that's not including care for extreme medical needs. Once a golden is rescued it has to be fed and kept in a foster home until adopted. To raise the money for all of this, NRGRR and TGRR rely on donations from sponsors and individuals, and have fundraisers such as golf tournaments, auctions and parties. It takes hundreds of individuals to run these fabulous rescue organizations and the result is that over 100 goldens are saved every year. But there are always more who need homes!

Another wonderful rescue organization is the Almost Heaven Golden Rescue located in Delray, West Virginia. These wonderful individuals concentrate on adopting and helping older and special needs goldens.
