Welcome to
Southern California Golden Retriever Rescue

Our dogs are placed in foster homes, temperament tested, socialized, and vetted prior to adoption. Our goal is to find the perfect home for each individual dog with the help of their 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.

Southern California Golden Retriever Rescue is the third largest Golden Retriever Rescue in the country and second-largest in the Western Region.

COVID-19 UPDATE DEC 7: For your health and ours, due to the significant health crisis, we have stopped taking new applications and conducting home visits until such time as the California environment is safe to do so. We plan to continue to rescue dogs and keep them safe while pursuing limited adoptions to those families already approved and waiting. These changes will keep us operational while drastically reducing the exposure of our volunteers and the public. Thank you for your patience and support during this difficult time.
