Welcome to
Southern California Golden Retriever Rescue

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.

  • Miracle Mutts Give-away!

    In 2015, a loving pup named Fergus made his way into rescue. He had severe burns all along his spine. To this day we can only speculate the cause but in true golden fashion, Fergus never looked back. He continues to pay it forward by comforting other burn victims as a therapy dog, and is featured in this book.

    Fergus’ family has three donated three copies of this book to SCGRR to raise funds for other medical dogs we continue to bring into rescue. These three books are extra special as they are personalized by Fergus himself. 

    In our fundraising efforts, we are holding a raffle now through December 20th at 6:00pm PST for this heartwarming book. Winners will be announced at that time and we will mail the books immediately.

    The cost is only $5 per opportunity ticket. You can purchase as many as you like!

    Fergus has been an inspiration to everyone he has met. Read more about him in this book, along with stories of other incredible dogs.
