3 Bonus Ways To Find A Rescue Golden Retriever
If the Golden Retriever rescues in or near Alabama don’t have a Golden for you, there are a few other ways to find a Golden.
The first option is to visit your local animal shelter.
This is a long shot since most Goldens go fast in these shelters, but if you check early and often, you may get lucky.
Plus, there’s always the chance that you’ll find another dog there who steals your heart!
The second way is to get active in your local Golden Retriever Facebook groups.
People who have to find a new home for their dog will often post there trying to find a new home for their pup themselves, instead of going through a rescue organization.
If you’re on at the right time, you may find a Golden who needs your home.
Just be sure to watch out for scammers!

The final way to find a rescue Golden is to get involved in your local Golden Retriever club.
The members there might have insider info on a Golden who needs a loving home.
This is another long shot, but I’ve found that the more Golden Retriever lovers you know, the more likely you are to find a Golden of your own.
And speaking of local Golden Retriever clubs…
