Southern California Golden Retriever Rescue’s Save-a-Life Program allows us to provide lifetime care for dogs deemed not adoptable due to long term health, or behavioral issues. Most are terminal. We have had uber-seniors with mobility issues, dogs with seizures, many with cancer or assorted medical issues, feral dogs, and dogs with supreme fear-based anxiety.
Many have been abandoned at shelters, some have been surrendered because the cost of care to their families was prohibitive, sadly others have passed along to SCGRR for Hospice because their families just did not want to deal with end-of-life care. Each dog requires a specific home to meet their needs. All of these dogs deserve the best rest-of-their life, which is what this program provides.
In the Permanent Foster 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. Your generous donations and participation in our fundraising efforts allow SCGRR to bring these poor souls in, and pay 100% of their vet care.
Thank you to all of our wonderful foster families who now care for Belize, Bloo, Boddington, Bugsy, Byron, Jarvis, Mei Mei, Sassy, Siena, and Zeus.
