Heartland is near and dear to my heart. I have adopted 6 Goldens through the years from Heartland, and I couldn't be happier.

Review for Heartland Golden Retriever Rescue, Knoxville, TN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I adopted my first Golden through Heartland approximately 8 years ago and I have adopted 3 additional Goldens since. It was because of my great respect for the work they do with such a small group of volunteers that I decided to get more involved and became a volunteer. Although I am many states away from its home base, I do what I can, assisting with fundraisers, making Heartland and its mission known to co-workers and others here in my home state, making phone calls and even assisted with a transport of a golden to his new home. Heartland takes its work very seriously, trying to ensure that each dog is placed in the proper home and always has the dog's best interest in mind. Although many times they don't know where the next dollar will come from to continue their work, they always seem to make it work. As they say, "it's a balancing act to make room for one more"...but they always do. I applaud Heartland, from the viewpoint first of an interested party, adopter four times over, and now volunteer.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

through my own adoption process, as well as processing other potential adopters.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I wouldn't make any changes to the organization, only that I wish more people would get involved as volunteers. This organization functions with a small group of volunteers, through no fault of their own, and does great work. Just think how much they could do with a larger group of volunteers!

Role:  Volunteer & Assisted with fundraisers, conducted interviews for potential adopters.
