“Golden Retriever Rescue of Southwest Florida, Inc. is an all volunteer 501(c)3 non-profit dog rescue organization. Based in Southwest Florida, Golden Retriever Rescue of Southwest Florida (GRRSWF) is dedicated to finding exceptional homes for exceptional Golden Retrievers and Golden mixes that are homeless, abandoned in Shelters or surrendered by their owners into their “forever” homes.
Golden Retriever Rescue of Southwest Florida works to raise awareness of the plight of the Golden Retriever breed specifically through community education as well as the benefits of adopting a rescue animal in need. We also support and promote responsible spay and neutering as well as programs that are designed to prevent animal abuse, neglect and cruelty.
All dogs that come in to the rescue are thoroughly vetted, as are the prospective owners. Dogs and new owners are carefully matched in an effort to ensure that this is a perfect and lifelong family situation. They use only foster homes for the dogs, no formal kennel facilities, so every dog is living in a family home environment and is well evaluated, loved and, when necessary, nursed back to health.
They've saved over 170 dogs since they started operations in 2009.
