Rescue (GTR) is an all-volunteer
rescue, providing veterinary care, foster homes and permanent
new homes for golden retrievers in the Ohio area. We rescue Golden
Retrievers wherever we find them
- Owners of Golden Retrievers
sometimes have to surrender their dogs because of health, moving,
or work schedule. We help find your dog a new home where he
will be loved and nurtured.
- Golden Retrievers abandoned
or taken to shelters need special attention, and Golden Treasures
Rescue will help with medical treatment and resocialization
of each dog into a new home.
Our adoption fee rarely covers
the cost of rescuing these wonderful dogs. We may take in a dog
that is already spayed/neutered, but the next one that comes in
may be heartworm positive. GT relies on donations, fundraising
activities and grants for its income. We do not receive any state
or federal funds. And, because GT is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization,
all donations are tax deductible.
pair came in together and we'd like to keep it that way.
They've been friends their whole lives ((Shady is male and
6 and Sarah is female and 9) and both are house hunting.
They lost their home because the family is moving and can't
take them along. They're great dogs, lovin' life and hoping
to find a forever home together. They're good with kids
and other dogs, but we're not sure about cats. Please help
us to keep them together.
If you are interested
in adopting Shady & Sarah, please fill out our online
more about other dogs available for adoption.
for Paws Update
Sonny Keim was
finally able to complete his "speed golfing" event
to help raise money for the rescue. He had to postpone the
original date due to an injury, but after a short delay,
he spent the day at Westfield Country Club, golfing 164
holes. The money he raised put a serious dent in our vet
bills. Thank you, Sonny, for conceiving and executing this
major fundraiser for Golden Treasures.

A Special Rescue
In May 2011
our rescue got a call from a local humane society. A man
was keeping a pair of Golden Retrievers in his back yard
and allowing them to breed at will. Neither puppies nor
parents were not given vet care or socialization. The humane
society knew because the older litter of nine puppies were
un-socialized chances of them getting adopted through their
shelter were slim. So, they asked us to help. We took in
the older litter and mom. The Human Society took the six-week-old
litter and dad.
weeks the puppies made great progress with socialization.
But they were still wary of new people and changes in surroundings.
We were able to find families willing to put in the extra
effort and care needed by these puppies. They were placed
in forever homes.
One of the
puppies, Skidder went to his new home in MI. But, as the
family pulled into the driveway at the end of their 4-hour
drive, they opened the car door and Skidder bolted. That
was in June, 2011. Once we learned Skidder was missing,
the amazing rescue to save his life began.
