Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

SEVA GRREAT is a volunteer-staffed, non-profit 501(c)3 organization that rescues abandoned and unwanted golden retrievers and places them in approved adoptive homes. Our service area is Central and Eastern Virginia. Since 1990, nearly 1600 goldens have been rescued and placed in loving forever homes.

About Our Rescue Group:

Prior to being adopted all goldens are fully vaccinated, heartworm and stool tested, dewormed and treated for heartworms as indicated, started on heartworm preventative, spayed or neutered, and micro-chipped. SEVA GRREAT is successful due to the tremendous amount of time given by our volunteers, generous donations received from Golden Retriever and animal lovers, and monies received from fundraising events an adoption fees. By the time an average dog enters its adoptive home it will have been supported by 10-12 volunteers and will have cost an average of nearly $700 for medical and foster care and other support expenses.

Our Adoption Process:

Please visit our website at www.adoptagolden.com to learn more about the adoption process. All adoptive homes must be approved by a SEVA GRREAT home evaluator, who helps you find your new family member. All of our dogs go through our foster care program, where they are evaluated for temperament, house manners, and sociability with children, other dogs, and cats. This helps us find just the right dog for you, your environment, and your lifestyle.

Our Adopted Pets:

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

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.
