Golden Retriever Rescue of the Rockies Overview
A "rescue dog" is any dog that has experienced a change in ownership from its original owner. The majority of our Goldens are released to us by their owners. Others come from cooperating shelters and some come from other states. The dogs we have available are of all ages, but we rarely get dogs under one year of age. We are always in need of special people to adopt senior Golden Retrievers. In the right home (and with proper training)rescued Goldens can make wonderful pets and adjust well to their new homes.We require all dogs adopted from Golden Retriever Rescue of the Rockies (GRRR) to be spayed or neutered before being placed. The dogs are brought up-to-date on their shots, if needed, before placement. Medical problems are also addressed before placement and this is where the majority of funds are expensed. Surgeries, medications, and other prescribed treatments are part of GRRR's responsibility to ensure every rescue has the best opportunity to find their "forever home." We also provide professional training to correct any bad habits and/or behavior problems that may be present. Some rescued Goldens have been too ill to place and we make sure they live out their lives in the comfort of one of our foster homes where they are loved and cared for until their quality of life ceases to exist.
