Review for HEARTLAND GOLDEN RETRIEVER RESCUE, Knoxville, TN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My husband and I are clients of, and volunteers for, Heartland Golden Retriever and we continue to support and refer people to Heartland for a positive adoption experience. This past summer we attended a gathering in Massachusetts of the New England adoptees, and it was so heartwarming to see all the beautiful, happy Goldens with their proud parents.

Role:  Volunteer & We adopted a 2-year old Golden from Heartland.

Review for HEARTLAND GOLDEN RETRIEVER RESCUE, Knoxville, TN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

We adopted our little Golden girl, Laci, from Heartland four years ago. She is the love of our life and we couldn't be more pleased. One of the important things that Heartland does before allowing a dog to be adopted is to carefully screen the dogs for medical and behavioral issues. That way you know if your adopted dog will be okay with cats, other dogs, children, etc., if they have any ongoing medical needs or may need obedience training. Being on Heartland's primary (Tennessee) and New England email distribution lists, we are always impressed with the lengths they will go to get a dog picked up or delivered, and get a new dog the medical help they may need. The fact that there are so many wonderful, dedicated volunteers in this organization is testimony to the sincere, caring, and tireless work they do.

Role:  Volunteer & My husband and I volunteer to interview prospective families hoping to adopt from Heartland.
