I have volunteered at many animal rescue organizations but DVGRR is the best around. The staff is so dedicated to providing the finest care for the dogs and careful to select the most appropriate home for each dog. They go above and beyond to provide adopters with information and support to ensure that the dogs stay in their new homes forever. I adopted two Goldens from DVGRR and they were the loves of my life. I'm looking forward to the day when another DVGRR Golden "selects" me!
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. The diligent process they put adopters thru worked wonders in our case. Lily joined our family of goldens and as a rescue and made a trio. She now runs, plays and acts like the other goldens in our home. I had never adopted a rescue before, and cannot say how delighted we were that we did. The time and effort they put into the dogs to make them adoptable is a true labor of love. They are one of the only rehab programs with their own facility for golden retreivers that I am aware of. Too all golden lovers and dog lovers everywhere, they deserve our full support, so they can continue their good work.
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 lost suddenly to cancer, and his new "sister" didn't give up, she just kept after him until he finally fell for her too! She has been a great asset to our family and we continue to support the wonderful shelter and the great people who do such a terrific job taking care of these goldens and finding them new homes.
We adopted our Golden in 2007 when she was a year old as a playmate for our other golden who was 18 months old. DVGRR is a wonderful rescue.
I adopted 2 dogs from Delaware Valley Golden Retriever Club. Both dogs have become assets to our household. The Rescue does a great job matching dog to family. The staff is well versed in helping their "guests" become suited to be adopted into their forever homes. They really care about the dogs. I strongly recommend people who would like to have a Golden to contact Delaware Valley Golden Retriever Rescue.
