THE STORY:

Sunny came to us through SCGRR who helped coordinate her safe arrival in the United States after she was found roaming the streets of Taiwan. Armed with a golden smile and perfect temperament, Sunny brightened the day of anyone and everyone she came across. She loved her work as a therapy dog and happily accepted all of the love showered upon her by those she visited. Off the clock, Sunny spent her time as my loyal sidekick, upside-down nap professional, and living up to her name by sunning herself outside on the deck. She was also the timekeeper of the house and was always ready to remind us exactly when five o'clock rolled around and it was doggie dinner time. Our family is so lucky to have had Sunny in our lives and so thankful for everything she gave us even if we had to say goodbye to her too soon. 

Our resident yard guardian, Comet, also came to us through SCGRR. Always the center of attention at every rescue event, Comet spends his down time defending the backyard from his arch-nemeses: squirrels.

Our home is also often frequented by a foster or two, some of whom come back to visit from time to time. Though saying goodbye to our foster pups is hard--and at times, tear-jerking--the best feeling that comes from rescue work is watching another golden find a family that will cherish and care for them the way they deserve. 

Donations help us care for and find more furever homes for our sweet goldens!

Southern California Golden Retriever Rescue wrote -

Southern California Golden Retriever Rescue is located in Los Angeles, CA with fosters and volunteers covering all of Southern California.  Our dogs are in foster homes, temperament tested, socialized and vetted prior to adoption.Our goal is to find the perfect home for each individual dog and each one has their own personal representative.

Our mission is to find loving, lifetime homes for all Southern California Golden Retrievers in need, regardless of conditions or circumstances.  We will always strive to heal the sick and injured, rehabilitate the neglected and abused, and nurture the aged and unwanted until we find the perfect family who will shower them with unconditional love.

We have rescued over 2,700 dogs since our founding in 2008.  The average cost to rescue and rehome has skyrocketed to over $975 per dog.  Over 86% of our income goes directly to animal welfare. We have no employees and no facility with high overhead.

If we raise the most funds by August 4, we will win $50,000 for climbing vet bills!

More and more we are seeing dogs abandoned with health issues and/or behavior issues that must be addressed prior to rescue. Here are some examples of the cost of rescuing a golden retriever. YOUR MONEY can make a difference – from basic health & wellness to pain relief or even fixing a bad hip. 

  • Dysplasia Surgery - $6,000
  • TPLO Surgery or Ear Ablation Surgery - $3,000
  • FHO Surgery - $1500
  • Entropian Surgery - $500/lid
  • Annual Vaccines & Wellness Exam -  $250
  • 1 Month of NSAID or Glucosamine injections for Arthritis - $50
  • 1 mo of Tramadol for Pain Management - $20

Golden retrievers are prone to severe ear infections, skin allergies, joint problems that ultimately result in arthritis, entropion eyelids, and cancer – both curable and not. Goldens dumped at shelters typically have one or several of these issues and SCGRR will not leave them behind.  We monitor craigslist and take dogs relinquished directly from their owners in the hopes we can prevent them from ever knowing what a shelter feels like.

In 2015, we rescued Fergus, helped break the story of nine other dogs who had been burned by acid as well, and launched a manhunt for the person responsible! Fergus is now giving back as a therapy dog in a burn unit.  

So far this year, we’ve taken in quite a few bonded pairs and found ourselves with maltipoos, doodles and more!  We’ve partnered with organizations in Turkey, South Korea, China and Taiwan to bring Golden Retrievers dumped in the forests or slated for the meat markets to safety where there is more demand for this amazing breed than US rescues can support!  And we’ve found a rehabilitation partner who is helping those with aggressive issues to remember what it means to be a true Golden!

Donations save lives. Please GIVE now and help SCGRR win $50,000 for animal welfare. To keep up with SCGRR follow us on facebook.
