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.


We are bringing in 4 new dogs (a 5-year old male and a 11-year old female), but we need foster homes for them.  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: 


Otto - Male, 14 weeks old

Otto - this is a 14-week old golden retriever/Irish setter mix from a puppy mill. He’s going to need a special home - one that is active and can match his high energy level. Another active dog in the home will help him expend that energy, as will someone who is home most of the time, can exercise him a lot and give him one-on- one attention. He’ll need help with housebreaking as well. A fence is also a must. 

If you'd like to seriously consider Otto, please fill out our online adoption application

When there isn't space for a dog in need, we are forced to say "no", probably the most heartbreaking response for a rescue volunteer.
