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.

Featured Dog: 

Gracie: Female, 2 years old

Gracie - she came to us with her friend, Mara. Mara found her new home, and Gracie's on the hunt.  She's a 2-year-old who, as luck would have it, needed orthopedic surgery. That was done and she's fully recovered and ready for her permanent home. She's all about grabbing the attention and can be a bit dominant with other animals.  She's also not good with cats. For that reason, she'll do best as an only dog.  She requires a conventional fence.

Dogs in China urgently need our help

China 2021 dogs in crisis
Beijing Olympics 2021 -- Crisis for Dogs


60 Golden Retrievers in China are in danger of being killed due to China's policies.

See the China Rescue Dogs video.  Warning: this video can be disturbing.

China Rescue Dogs (CRD) is trying to get them out, but China has banned export of dogs to the USA.  CRD will try to get them out to Canada, but it costs $3,500 per dog (transport costs are very high these days) and that comes to over $200,000.

If your organization, or you, can help with a donation, please contact Jill Stewart at China Rescue Dogs directly on her cell phone at: 919-619-4374

Or you can Donate through Golden Treasures Rescue, and specify "For China Rescue Dogs"
