Golden Retriever Rescue - South Africa

Please note that we are not a rescue centre and do not always have dogs needing homes.

Volunteer run by individuals who love Goldens and give their time to help dogs who are in need.

If you have a Golden that you need to re-home please contact us so we can assist you.

If you would like to adopt a Golden please do read the FAQ to make sure that a Golden is indeed the right breed for you and you for them. You can fill in the questionnaire on the Adoptees page so we have all your details.

You can make a difference in the life of a Golden who needs you!

How does Golden Retriever Rescue work?AdopteesHappy Days

When we re-home a Golden, we ask for a donation so we have the funds to help future dogs needing to be re-homed, to cover possible veterinary costs, kennelling etc.

On this page you will find the forms to fill in to either adopt a Golden or to surrender one

Please do visit our Facebook page for Goldens available for adoption. We update the Facebook page as we get dogs for adoption so do visit often as there may not be a rescue available at the moment. Link available on the page.

If you want a companion who will want to be by your side with unconditional love then a Golden is for you. Goldens should be part of the family. They not only need love but also exercise, training and stimulation.
