We asked for financial help. And boy, did we ever get it!
A huge thank you to everyone who "stepped up" for the Rescue and, of course for the dogs.
 We received over $10,000 in donations.
What an amazing gift!!! So many wonderful, generous, caring people. We are so lucky! 


Golden Rescue South Florida

A 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to helping homeless Golden Retrievers in South Florida

Dogs come to Golden Rescue South Florida from various sources within Florida. Many of the dogs are given up by their owners because they cannot or will not give them the much needed love, attention or medical care necessary. Some of the dogs come from animal shelters. When a dog comes into a shelter, it is very important that we get the dogs out as soon as possible (according to the shelter's policy) Often finding a place to put the dogs is a major problem for us.  We need foster homes because we have no kennel facility.

 Dogs are cared for in our foster homes where they are assessed to ensure an ideal forever home. All dogs are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, provided medical treatment and put on flea/tick and heartworm prevention prior to adoption.
You can find more information on fostering on the Fostering a Golden page.

We want to send out a special thank-you to those of you who support the GRSF financially.

   Well, 2014 is over. We started out the new year with a hugely successful, fun filled reunion. Great way to start. Our deepest gratitude to everyone who took part in 2014...volunteers,fosters, donors. Rescuing this many dogs could not be done without all of you!
Here are  our figures for the past year:
Dogs rescued         144
Dogs adopted         136
Dogs PTS                   8

Of the 8 dogs we PTS, 3 were golden retrievers and 5 were mixes.
Of the 3 golden retrievers, 2 had cancer and 1 had behavior/aggression issues.
Of the 5 mixes, 1 had cancer, 1 was injured and 3 had behavior/aggression issues.

Total expenses for the year were $86,212.29.
Of that total, 70% was for vet bills  equaling $60,437.72
