About Our Rescue Group:

We rescue stray, abandoned or surrendered golden retrievers, vet them and adopt them into good, loving home.

Come Meet our Pets:

We do not have a formal shelter and work on a foster care system. Once a good match is identified the family is invited to a "meet and greet " date where the family and the rescued golden can get to know each other.

Our Adoption Process:

We have an application process. Applications are screened, references are checked and a home visit is scheduled. Upon qualifying to adopt a golden we match the golden to the lifestyle and activity level of the family. For dogs less than one year of age, GRREP observes adoption fee policies in compliance with City of El Paso Municipal Code Title 7. For adult dogs, a minimum donation of $250 is requested at the time of adoption to help cover spay/neutering, microchip, transportation(to and from vet, foster families, etc.), food and medical care for rescued goldens.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
