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.


 foster dogs 4 female

We are bringing in new dogs(all females two 3 yr. olds, a 4 yr. old and a 5 yr. old), but we need foster homes for them.  We need an adult only home for the 2 year old male.  Fostering a rewarding experience.  It is a great feeling to know that you have helped a dog move on to a better life. For every dog we can help re-home, we can open up a space to save yet another.

To foster a dog, we require a conventional fence (invisible fences just aren't secure enough for mill dogs) and a home with another dog.

Featured Dogs: 


Judy - Female, 6 years old

Judy - although she's from the mill, she has managed to become a little more social than most puppy mill dogs. At 6 years old, she's a real sweet girl who likes other dogs, kids and even cats. She need another dog in the home and a conventional fence.
