Sadly, with the present situation regarding the COVID-19 restrictions, we need to make a few TEMPORARY adjustments:Effective immediately, we are suspending out-of-state adoptions longer than a 3 hour drive from our location in Bath, OH.We will also be prioritizing the apps that presently have a fence and another dog, due to the fact that the majority of our rescues are Mill Dogs.If you do not presently have a dog, but have a fence and are seriously willing to adopt a pair, we will also put your application on our priority list.
Please keep in mind, this is a temporary situation, but one we must implement. Our first priority is finding the right forever home for our precious rescues.We also have to be considerate of those who step up to meet our needs by volunteering. We are in unchartered territory at this moment and we ask you to be patient as we navigate through the ever-changing restrictions being set by our state to keep everyone safe and healthy.
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
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.
We are reaching our hands around the world to help dogs in need. Golden Treasures Rescue has joined a team of 9 American rescue organizations and 4 Chinese rescuers to save 99 dogs in China who desperately need help. But we can’t make it happen without you.
The dogs were scheduled to come to the United States this spring. But when international flights were canceled, they lost their chance to be rescued and then more challenges arose for rescuers in China.
When the coronavirus broke out in China, there was misinformation about dogs spreading the virus. As a result, many dogs were abandoned by their owners or confiscated by local authorities. Now Chinese rescuers are in crisis. Private shelters and foster homes are over capacity and the dogs will be stuck in cramped conditions, potentially for years.
To make matters worse, the Yulin dog meat festival is happening soon. Chinese rescuers could save some of these dogs from slaughter, but only if space is freed up at the overcrowded shelters.
With the borders closed there is no other international rescue happening, so the dogs stand no chance. Unless you can help us save them.
Working with our rescue partners, we found a way, against all odds, to secure a private charter plane at below cost. 99 dogs are vetted and ready to travel. If we can transport them here, it will free them from cramped shelters and open up space for dogs who otherwise will be slaughtered. We are working together to raise the $268,000 needed to fund the rescue. Upon their arrival in America, the dogs will be divided among our rescue groups. Golden Treasures Rescue will be taking in 5 dogs. The exact date is still being set, but we anticipate their arrival in early July if we can raise the money to save them.
