Golden Treasures 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.

If you’re not ready for a dog of your own, 
but want to help one in need,
become a Golden Godparent to a dog who could really use one,
like Reno, below.      

Reno: Male, 2 years old

Reno's life so far has been a challenge.  He was kept in a crate for most of his life, evidenced by the fact that he was urine-soaked and he had no muscle mass in his hind legs.  Because he was confined so much, his socialization skills aren't what a normal golden's would be.  Based on these issues, Golden Treasures has been spending extra money on him by sending him to Doggie Daycare, boarding him while we work with him, and consulting a trainer.  All that adds up to an expense we hadn't planned on.  

If you would like to become one of his Golden Godparents with a donation to him, we'll keep you updated and list your name here as someone who cared enough about Reno to contribute to his expenses.

Scarlett                                                              Holly


Scarlett had to have one kidney removed and she has a diagnosis of nephroblastoma, which has a poor prognosis.  Holly, 9 years young, came to us with kidney disease. She's in a foster home, where she'll stay for as long as she lives. Won't you consider becoming a godparent to either or both of these dear girls?
