Golden Treasures Golden Retriever Rescue 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 them a new home where they will be loved and nurtured.
  • Golden Retrievers that are abandoned or taken to shelters need special attention, and Golden Treasures Rescue will help with medical treatment and re-socialization 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. Golden Treasures relies on donations, fundraising activities and grants for its income. We do not receive any state or federal funds. And, because Golden Treasures is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, all donations are tax deductible.
