Welcome to Southern California Golden Retriever Rescue

We are the third largest Golden Retriever Rescue in the country, finding homes for over 300 dogs annually.

Our dogs are placed in foster homes where we can assess their temperament and provide them with all the necessary veterinary care they would need prior to adoption.

Our Goal

Our goal is to find loving, lifetime homes for each dog that comes through our doors.  Every dog has their own representative from the time they enter the rescue through to their adoption.

Our Mission

Our mission is to rescue homeless Golden Retrievers, Golden mixes, and like breeds in Southern California from situations of abuse and neglect regardless of conditions or circumstances.

Our Vision

Our vision is to build a sanctuary to serve as a halfway house, where each of our beloved rescue dogs can rest and recuperate while we evaluate their needs, prior to being placed with a foster or permanent family.

COVID-19 UPDATE: For your health and ours, due to the significant health crisis, we are not currently taking new applications or conducting home visits until such time as the California environment is safe to do so. We plan to continue to rescue dogs and keep them safe while pursuing limited adoptions to those families already approved and waiting. These changes will keep us operational while drastically reducing the exposure of our volunteers and the public. Thank you for your patience and support during this difficult time
