Other Places To Rescue A Golden Retriever
If the Golden Retriever Rescue of Southern Maryland, Goldheart Golden Retriever Rescue, or the rescues in nearby states don’t have a golden for you — no worries — there are other ways to find a dog who needs a new home.
One way is to get involved with your local golden retriever Facebook groups.
Here’s why: sometimes people will need to give up their dog because they ran into unfortunate life circumstances.
They still love their dog so they’d rather find them a new home themselves, rather than give them up to an organization.
That’s where you can come in.
It doesn’t happen often, but if you’re patient, you can probably find a great dog that way.
The other way to find a golden who needs to be rehomed is by talking with people in your local golden retriever club…
Golden Retriever Clubs In Maryland
Golden retriever club members might be able to help you find a dog who needs a new home.
It’s like the Facebook strategy where it’s not always a quick find, but it can help if you’re patient and talk to the right people.
And then, once you do adopt your golden retriever, the golden retriever clubs can be of even more help.
You can talk with and get advice from experienced golden retriever owners, you can socialize your golden with other goldens, get them involved in dog sports and activities, and you can get referrals for services like veterinarians, groomers, or doggy daycares.
Here’s are the nearby golden retriever clubs:
Chesapeake Golden Retriever Club
Location: Rising Sun
Potomac Valley Golden Retriever Club
Location: Washington, D.C.

i’m looking for a rescue goldendoodle but everything i click on shows me dogs for sale.
Goldendoodle rescues will be really hard to find because they’re in such high demand.
I had a wonderful Golden Retriever that I rescued from the Md SPCA . Lady was a real find in every sense of the word. She was between 5 and 6 years and lived to be 14 years old. I still miss her greatly.
Can you help me find another Golden Retriever?
