Hurry up and wait. Our dogs from Puerto Rico were definitely on "Latin time". We had to wait for cool weather, and available cargo space. We had forever Families anxiously awaiting their arrival. And then, in true Rescue fashion, we got a text Sunday night saying they were arriving Monday morning, with a bonus! A six month old female puppy was joining Byron and Sara. (Yes, she is spoken for). So our first Golden's arrived, safe and sound, and incredibly, no "accidents" in their crate. And in typical Golden fashion, tails wagging as fast as they could go. When we know who is coming next. We will post them. But please understand, when they arrive, they need a place to go.....and like this time we may get a surprise extra dog. Decisions need to be made. The Family who got the female puppy Rowan, took a chance. They said yes on Sunday night, after my surprise phone call. They opened their doors and their hearts to this little girl. And she is spectacular. Please keep in mind. If we place a dog with you. And it isn't a fit....we will find a different home for the dog. But at least it gives us a safe place to put the dog while we find the perfect home for it. This is true, not just for the dogs coming from P.R., but from the shelter, or a stray. Remember, these are Golden Retrievers, they're loving and anxious to please. There is virtually no risk to  saying "sure, I'll take the dog....and let's see how it goes."  The Rescue is right there "with" you. If it isn't a "fit"...we move on. Lastly, back to the dogs from Puerto Rico. We are excited to have formed an alliance with the Rescue down there. The dogs arrived clean, vaccinated and all 3 were totally house trained! We can't wait to see who is coming next!

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 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, 2015 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 2015...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         160
Dogs PTS                   7

Total expenses for the year were $100.000
