Goldens In Foster Care

Note: In light of the impacts from COVID-19, the various restrictions imposed both nationally and locally, and the safety of GRRIN’s volunteers, GRRIN will not accept applications for adoption or foster families and traditional home visits will not be conducted. We will continue to match dogs with approved families as safety restrictions permit. We will add foster dogs to this page because we know our Golden Retriever friends enjoy seeing their stories and progress through GRRIN. We realize this is a difficult time and greatly appreciate your support while we ensure volunteers and dogs are kept safe.

We appreciate that many wonderful families would like to rescue a GRRIN dog, however the reality is that we will not have enough dogs for everyone. We enjoy highlighting each rescue dog on this web page and taking those that are comfortable to meet and greets so that the public can see the amazing work our all-volunteer organization can accomplish. We know our rescue dogs touch many hearts, and your patience throughout the adoption process is highly valued by volunteers who give their free time to GRRIN. Thank you for your support!

Dogs featured on this page are currently in our foster home network, a key component of GRRIN’s rescue program. The principle behind fostering is to provide the dogs entrusted to our care with a home environment in order to evaluate their habits, health and behavior and to offer the new owner more information about the dog. GRRIN dogs may be fostered for as little as two weeks but usually require more time. GRRIN’s ultimate goal is to make the perfect match for each Golden and family; therefore, much attention is given to understanding the needs of both.

We encourage you to become familiar with our group via social events – check out our calendar – all friendly dogs are welcome!

We do not have an online application – please learn more about our adoption requirements by clicking on the links below, then leave a message on our Goldline. A volunteer will return your call. Be prepared to spend at least 30 minutes to answer questions.
