3 Extra Ways To Find A Rescue Golden Retriever

If none of the Golden Retriever rescues in or near Georgia have a Golden for you, there are a few other options.

The first option is to check your local animal shelter.

This is a long shot since most Golden Retrievers 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 who steals your heart!

The second option is to get involved with your local Golden Retriever Facebook groups.

People who have to rehome their dog will often post there and try to find a new home for their pup themselves, instead of going through a rescue organization.

If you’re there at the right time, you may find a Golden who needs your home.

Just be sure to watch out for scammers!

The final option is to get involved with your local Golden Retriever club.

The members might have inside knowledge 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.

And speaking of local Golden Retriever Clubs…

Golden Retreiver Clubs In Georgia

Not only can your local Golden Retriever club help you potentially find your Golden, they can also help you raise them.

For example, your local club can help with:

  • Socializing and exercising your Golden through their dog sports and other events
  • Getting advice from experienced Golden Retriever owners
  • Getting referrals for services like vets, groomers, and doggy daycares
