Golden Retriever Rescue of Southwest Florida, Inc. (GRRSWF) is an all volunteer 501(c)3 non-profit dog rescue organization. Based in Southwest Florida, Golden Retriever Rescue of Southwest Florida is dedicated to finding exceptional homes for exceptional Golden Retrievers and Golden mixes that are homeless, abandoned in Shelters, or surrendered by their owners.
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.
Come Meet Our Pets...
All of our dogs are placed in loving foster homes who evaluate them while treating them as one of their own family, so we do not have a formal boarding facility. Once you have identified a dog of interest and have submitted an application, then you will be able to schedule a visit to the foster home and the first meeting with your new family member.
Our Adoption Process...
Potential adopters are asked to complete and application form, GRRSWF will perform a vet check followed by a telephone interview with the adopter, we will then set up a home visit in order to make the best possible match between the dog and it's new home. We do not charge any application fees. Adoption donations are on a sliding scale according to the dog's age and medical needs.
