Your donations help permanent fosters thrive!
July 12, 2016

Week 2 of the challenge and if we raise $1000 more this week, we are in the running for a $2000 grant! Your donations have helped us commit resources  See more

THE STORY:

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.

So far we have rescued over 2700 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 9 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.
