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.

and Rudy, Female and Male, Seniors
We got to these
two dogs just in the St. Nick of time. Their owners were
in the parking lot, ready to drop them off at the shelter
to be euthanized because of their inability to care for
them. One of our network volunteers interceded and called
Who could resist
this senior pair? Fiona is an Italian Greyhound, small and,
right now, frightened. But she LOVES to cuddle up in the
cute new sweater we bought, into a big mountain of warm
blankets. Rudy, the golden male, is just happy to be. He
enjoys carrying around toys and has the typical golden personality.
Rudy is extremely overweight, so he's on a diet. We know
that when that extra weight comes off, he'll be bouncing
around like a youngster. Because of the devotion each dog
shows to the other, we'd like to keep them together.
If you are interested
in adopting Fiona and Rudy, please fill out our online

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.
