Southern California Golden Retriever Rescue’s “Save a Life” Program allows us to provide long-term care for dogs who for health, and sometimes behavioral, reasons are not adoptable. Some of the dogs are seniors with arthritis, some have severe hip problems that cannot be helped with surgery and some are terminal.
In this program, these precious Golden Retrievers live with very special foster families who love them deeply and care for them for the rest of their days. Many were abandoned at shelters because they were sick – left to die in pain, alone and afraid. Your generous donations and participation in our fundraising efforts allows SCGRR to take these poor souls in and pay for 100% of their vet care. Your donations are vital to these efforts and allows them to know dignity, comfort and love. Please consider donating or increasing your donation today!

Their lifetime owner had passed away and extended family did not have the resources to keep both together. You see, Phoebe and Sophie were bonded for life. They were taken to the Humane […]see more

Due to very bad “back yard breeding” this little 8 month old baby needed heart surgery and was born with Cataracts to boot.
