3 Bonus Ways To Find A Rescue Golden Retriever
If the rescues listed above don’t have any available Golden Retrievers — don’t worry!
There are three other ways that, with a little bit of luck and patience, can help you find the Golden of your dreams.
The first is to scour your local animal shelters.
Yes, this is a long shot, and yes, any Golden dropped off here will go quickly, but if you check early and often, you may find one.
Plus, you might also find another dog that steals your heart!
The second way to find a rescue Golden is to get active in your local Golden Retriever Facebook groups.
People who need to rehome their dog will sometimes try to find a new home themselves, rather than go through a rescue group.
When they do this, they often post in local Facebook groups.
Here’s where you can step in and offer your loving home.
Just watch out for scammers!
The final way to find a rescue Golden is to get involved with your local Golden Retriever club.
This is another long shot, but some of the members might have some inside knowledge about a Golden who needs a new home.
Plus, the more Golden lovers you know, the higher your chances of finding a Golden of your own are.
And speaking of Golden Retriever Clubs…
