Mission: We work to save homeless golden retrievers from shelters, municipal pounds, and dogs turned in to us directly by owners who can no longer care for them. We do our best to assess each dog's medical needs, temperament, behavior, habits and exercise needs. Each dog receives any necessary vet care including all vaccinations and is spayed/neutered (if old enough) before adoption. We then carefully select homes based on the needs of each individual golden.
Programs: To save homeless golden retrievers from shelters, municipal pounds, and dogs turned in directly by owners who can no longer care for them. During 2017 the organization was able to place over 125 dogs in good homes.
Having both adopted and fostered SGRR dogs, I am so grateful for all the volunteers that come together to tirelessly find loving homes for these sweet dogs. The adoption process does not just place a dog, rather carefully tries to match the the dog's needs and abilities with families needs, abilities and expectations. The support does not end with placement. My last foster was a very challenging emotionally damaged breeder dog. The ongoing support, suggestions, and encouragement never wavered. We finally adopted her. SGRR is not just a rescue, it's a family. I look forward to checking in to see posted pictures of the Sunshine dogs as well as the happy new adoption stories.
