DELAWARE VALLEY GOLDEN RETRIEVER RESCUE INC Overview
Calls for help are answered almost immediately and dogs are accepted into our clean, modern facility called Golden Gateway near Reading, PA. Since this 50 kennel run facility was opened in 2000, DVGRR has had the capacity to accept Goldens twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. Further, we serve as an emergency drop-off point for all breeds by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Department of Agriculture. Golden Gateway is one of only two owned facilities among the sixty-five Golden Retriever rescue groups in the United States and DVGRR is one of only a few rescue organizations to have a dedicated facility for care of the dogs.All incoming dogs are screened for socially unacceptable behavior (biting) and the dogs that are accepted are those that the trainer determines can be responsibly placed in carefully pre-screened adoptive homes. Dogs with certain behavioral issues are accepted for long-term behavior modification. Spay and neuter services are provided along with essential veterinary care prior to adoption.A hallmark of DVGRR's program is the services offered to senior dogs (eight years and older). These typically hard-to-place dogs receive a complete blood chemistry profile to show prospective adopters that major organs are functioning. This test enhances their adoptability. DVGRR has never had a senior or special needs Golden Retriever who was not adopted.

Delware Valley Golden Retreiver Rescue is a truly amazing place. We adopted our four year old dog in 2009, she was one of the "puppy mill breeder" dogs. Although she had many quirks and needed a lot of patience and love, without the DVGRR and their belief in these dogs, she wouldn't be here today...

We adopted our little girl in July of 2006, and would not hesitate to adopt from DVGRR again. They did a great job of matching us with our new family member, she fit right in from day one. We credit her with saving our older boy who was only 5 at the time and was grieving for his "sister" who we ...
