Reviews for Heartland Golden Retriever Rescue

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been with Heartland for many years now and can't say enough about this group. I have adopted many Goldens from them and loved that they came into our lives. My new golgen, Belle, the one on the couch is greeted by all Home Depot employees. They love it when she comes in. Just another successful story about Heartland.

I have received 4 goldens from Heartland. They are the only resuce place I like to deal with. All my dogs were healthy and the perfect fit for our family. Can't wait for another opportunity to adopt again.

I have been privileged to interact with the people behind the scenes at Heartland GRR for several years now and am always impressed with their heart and commitment in finding homes for animals in need. I adopted my first golden 8 years ago. The application and review process is thorough and intended to make sure everything will be a good match on both sides. I have been a foster home for dogs so they can be comfortable and acclimated to family life, and reduce expense for the rescue. One of those foster babies wormed her way into becoming my 2nd adopted golden. I have been a volunteer with the organization and see firsthand the dedication behind every decision made. They truly are special people saving special dogs and doing it with heart, Heartland.

Heartland Golden Retriever Rescue does an amazing job of rescuing and re-homing goldens. They often take dogs that other rescues will not, assure that they receive veterinary care, human kindness, a safe place to recuperate and placement in an appropriate and loving home. Every penny is spent efficiently and for the benefit of the dogs. I have adopted two dogs from Heartland GRR and whole heartedly support this group and their efforts.

Heartland is a wonderful rescue organization that gives incredibly deserving dogs a second chance and incredibly lucky families the opportunity to fill their homes with the love and joy that these dogs bring. I have adopted 2 wonderful friends from Heartland and am very grateful that Heartland was there for my dogs and for me.

We have adopted several dogs through Heartland over the years. Our youngest boy is very lucky to have been taken under the Heartland wing. At around a year old he had been passed around: given away, and posted on Craig's List. Thankfully a Volunteer was able to secure safety for him and bring him into Rescue. We consider ourselves lucky to be his "forever" family. Heartland is a small, but dedicated group of people. It is truly about the dogs for them: from puppies to seniors (dogs over 7 yrs old), Goldens and Golden "Wannabee's" Heartland has been there for many. They are my Rescue.

This rescue has been around a very long time, from the head of the rescue down to all the volunteers, it's truly about the dogs.

Heartland Rescue is named correctly because every aspect touches your heart. The volunteers, the professionals, the dogs, and especially Pauline Stevens who do the hours and hours of work that needs to get done so people like myself can come home at the end of the day to a wonderful rescue dog. Pauline matches people and dogs so beautifully you can't go wrong. This June we came home to VT. with our third rescue dog. Why did we drive over 2 days to get a dog? Because we would get the best dog for us and to see a good friend again, Pauline.

Heartland Rescue is the first rescue I tried and it was the greatest experience. Katie, my golden, was rescued by them and when I saw her picture I just fell in love with her. She is the best golden ever although she had (unknown at the time) medical issues. Pauline was great and helped with getting information needed by Katie's new vet and, thankfully, the problem is under control. I am so blessed to have stumbled upon Heartland Golden Retriever Rescue.....they are wonderful!

"A Heart of Gold", Heartlands motto really says it all, both about the Golden's themselves but also the truly "Golden volunteers ". My wife and I have been privileged and Blessed to have adopted 5 Golden children over the years through Heartland and Pauline and crew are simply among the most caring and knowledgeable people I have ever had the privilege of knowing and dealing with over these many years. As a life long business person I can testify that any donation you can give will be put to the very highest and best use to care for those Goldens and Golden mixes who cannot care for themselves.

I've worked with Heartland since 2007. First as an adopter, then as a volunteer. My beloved Sydney came from them. Pauline knew she was "my girl" even before I did! They do a fabulous job of matching dogs with the right families and being there after the adoption to ensure everything is going well and offer advice if/when needed. I've had the privilege of making a few home visits for them to meet prospective families and having been on both sides, I can honestly say no one works harder to ensure the right fit! I can't sing their praises enough!

HGRR, is the best rescue group I have ever dealt with. It does my heart good to know that there are people in the world that give up their time to help animals. I understand that most of the volunteers have day jobs and commend them all on a job well done. I love my baby that I adopted from them and would never think lof using a different group.
