Southern California Golden Retriever Rescue is lucky to have twenty very special families that care for our precious Golden Retrievers who for health reasons are not adoptable. These volunteers love and care for the fur babies without the worry of vet expenses. One hundred percent of the vet care is paid for by your generous donations and our continuous fundraising. They are truly heroes and vital to saving those that need ongoing care. Some of the dogs are seniors with arthritis, some have severe hip problems that cannot be helped with surgery and some are terminal.
Paws up to Barbara Scheid, Shendl Diamond, Laurie Hoffman, Chris and Jean Wagner, Sandy & Sue McGregor, Tara Morgan, Eileen Burnett, Arlene Montgomery, Blayne Chenoweth, Karyn King and Nancy Kollisch. Also, thank you to our permanent foster coordinator Barbara Gale.
Ed Buck, Carrie Madrid, Jenni Morita, Arlene Montgomery, Debbie Rothschild, Kathy Brill, Julie Flood, Natalie Lindberg and Kiersten Kanaster have opened themselves and their homes to care for terminal dogs. They have loved Danny Boy, Krystal Rose, Homer and Princess Beloved Pearl, Branson, Rosko, Mansfield’s Buddy, Shadow, and Gretel until it was time for them to cross the Rainbow Bridge and they remember them always. These dogs were abandoned at the shelters because they were sick. These special fosters have opened their homes and hearts and held them until it was time to say goodbye….
Enjoy meeting some of the dogs that are currently part of our permanent foster program below.
Please consider making a donation so we can continue to help these “unwanted” & “thrownaway” angels.

Lou Lou is as fine as can be expected for an elderly, arthritic, very loving Golden Retriever. She sleeps a lot but loves to be petted and eat. She doesn’t know how play, doesn’t fetch but is a fine pet for 80 year olds like us. We feel her pain. Getting up and down is […]see more

Close to 12 years old, Mibo was found on a bridge in a small town in Taiwan. He was crated (like most dogs in Taiwan) in a crate much too small for him and that’s where he spent most of his life. Mibo was exhausted when he was sent to the vet. He fell asleep […]see more

She’s here, she’s happy, and hanging in there… no teeth, but she doesn’t seem to care. She is an awesome girl. Very sensitive soul. She really struggled with the loss of her doggie siblings Molly and Bogey (as did I). She follows me everywhere and even after almost 2 years, if I leave the house, […]see more
Neo is between 10 and 14 years old. I’ve had him almost four years and he has been a wonderful addition to our family. He became a friend to our horse Sonny while we transitioned from one horse back to two. He is healthy and happy. When he came to us he had hot spots […]see more
