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.

The Faces of International Rescue:

Here are the faces of many dogs saved by GTR as we continue to assist with the international effort to rescue Golden Retrievers from the China meat trade and the streets of Istanbul, Turkey whenever possible. Click the image above to see a video of the dogs that were rescued in the last year.

These dogs face unimaginable outcomes until rescuers step in to give them hope for a better life.  Transporting these survivors to safety is expensive, mostly due to the rising cost of fuel.  Please consider making a donation towards our future international rescue efforts.

More Dogs From China

We have 4 more dogs from China.  They are now available for adoption soon, so if you are interested, you can begin the application process now.

Adoption fees for dogs from China are $1000.
