We value all our previous adopters, donors, volunteers, and interested families. However, we prioritize based on the best fit for the dog. Those families with children under five years of age often have a longer wait as we typically only match dogs with a known history to these families.
We receive several applications daily and do our best to process applicants quickly and match families to the right dog, ensuring success and happiness for all involved. Some dogs are surrendered to us by families due to financial, health, or moving needs. Others come from shelters or irresponsible breeders through no fault of their own. Adopting a pet is a lifetime promise that requires patience and commitment. The joys and rewards are many.
Please expect a lengthy wait for those seeking a purebred Golden Retriever dog or puppy. However, we have always opened our doors to Golden mixes and other dogs of golden heart and hope you will see that they are equally special and deserving.
We understand and share your love of the Golden breed. If you decide to consider purchase over adoption, please be sure to read our information about how to choose a responsible breeder, so you don’t inadvertently contribute to the horrors of puppy mills.
