3 Extra Ways To Find A Rescue Golden Retriever
If the Golden Retriever rescues in or near Vermont don’t have a Golden for you, there are a few other ways for you 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 option is to join your local Golden Retriever Facebook groups and get to know people in there.
People who need to find a new home for their Golden will sometimes post there and try 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 members there might have insider info on a Golden who needs a loving home.
This is another long shot, but the more Golden Retriever lovers you know, the more likely you are to find a Golden of your own.
