We are the original Southern California Golden Retriever Rescue. Our dogs are in foster homes, never kenneled, temperament tested, socialized and vetted prior to adoption. Our goal is to find the perfect home for each individual dog and each one has their own personal representative.
Our mission is to find loving, lifetime homes for all Southern California Golden Retrievers in need, regardless of conditions or circumstances. We will always strive to heal the sick and injured, rehabilitate the neglected and abused, and nurture the aged and unwanted until we find the perfect family who will shower them with unconditional love.
Our vision is to build a refuge – a sanctuary – to serve as a halfway house where each of our beloved Goldens can rest and recuperate, prior to being placed with a foster or permanent family and moving on in their new lives.

SAVE A LIFE PROGRAM
Sponsor a Permanent Foster
at Southern California Golden Retriever Rescue
Want to help the Goldens, but can’t adopt or foster and don’t have time to volunteer? You can still help! You can make a huge difference in the life of a Golden in need by sponsoring a dog in our SAVE A LIFE PROGRAM.
Each of the Goldens that comes to SCGRRescue receives at a minimum, a vet exam, vaccinations, spay/neuter, and treatment (if needed), and ultimately placement into a loving home. Some dogs require additional medical care, including hip surgeries, repairing broken bones, removing tumors, treating ear infections, ear surgeries, eye surgeries, knee surgeries, and a host of other surgeries. Our adoption fees don’t come close to covering the costs of this extensive medical care. Thus we rely on donations from our generous supporters.
And some of these goldens will stay with us forever, becoming part of our Permanent Foster Program.
Pictured below are seventeen of the twenty dogs currently in our program, that were decided by our doctors and Board of Directors to be unadoptable due to their health issues and/or high medical costs.
If you would like to help by sponsoring, you’ll be making a huge difference in their lives.
You can make a one-time donation of any amount via PayPal, Credit Card or Justgive, or you can become a Angel by making a monthly donation via PayPal. Your name and any dedication you would like, will appear permanently under the dog you sponsor.
Donations are 100% tax deductible and will be a blessing for those Golden’s who will be with us for a few months or a few years. But for however much time they have, they will be taken care of and loved….

SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA GOLDEN RETRIEVER
RESCUE IS FIVE YEARS OLD!
When a group of us decided that we wanted to start a new and different type of rescue in So Cal, little did we know that five years later, SCGRRescue would be among one of the most respected rescues in the community. We have rescued over 1900 dogs and performed 100′s of life saving surgeries. We have taken in unloved, unwanted and simply forgotten dogs that were thrown away. Today these same babies are happy, loved and healthy. Over 100 volunteers, dozens of foster families and over a dozen dogs living their lives out in our permanent foster program. None of this would have been possible without the support of the community. Thank you all for being there for them for the last five years. We hope you will continue to be there for them for the next five and beyond. Support our website, our newsletter and please like us on Facebook. Thank You!!
