Neuse River Golden Retriever Rescue, Inc. (NRGRR) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to helping unwanted golden retrievers through rescue, rehabilitation and adoption. Dogs enter the program from a wide variety of situations. They may be the products of broken homes, surrendered due to neglect, or dropped off at shelters where they have little chance of being adopted prior to being euthanized. The organization’s territory includes the eastern half of North Carolina from the Triangle area (Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill), north to Virginia, south to South Carolina and east to the Atlantic coast.

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.
