Review for Delaware Valley Golden Retriever Rescue Inc, Reinholds, PA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

When we heard about DVGRR in the summer of 2017, we decided to add another dog to our pack, having recently lost our beagle to cancer. With two other dogs in our home, we needed our new addition to be a good match for our dogs and our kids. We attended at open house at DVGRR and loved being able to walk around to interact with all the dogs and volunteers. We were disappointed when we were not immediately matched with a dog, but knew waiting would be worth it. A few weeks later, a dog that appeared to be a small Golden retriever named Abby appeared on the website. Abby (who turned out to have no Golden retriever in her, but we didn't care!) was a recent arrival at DVGRR from Puerto Rico. I knew this was our dog. Within a few days, we were at DVGRR meeting her, then returning with our dogs to ensure a good fit. She is the softest, sweetest, snuggliest dog and has been a great fit for our family! The following year, we lost our yellow lab from another rescue to cancer and decided to return to DVGRR to find a new family member. At the monthly meet and greet, we fell in love with Cocoa who is classified as a "supermutt", Again, we struck gold with a DVGRR dog. Cocoa, direct from Puerto Rico, is the most friendly and laid back dog we could have imagined. In December 2019, she earned her therapy dog certification and enjoys spending time with everyone she meets! I have also enjoyed my time as a volunteer at DVGRR, starting as a dog walker, then helping with monthly open houses and working with the Project Home Life program. The staff have been fabulous to work with, both as a client and as a volunteer. We send anyone looking to rescue a dog to DVGRR!
