Grand Strand Golden Retriever Rescue (GSGRR) is an all volunteer group based in Murrells Inlet, South Carolina. We are dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and placement of homeless Golden Retrievers into the best homes possible to ensure their lifelong love and care. We are funded only by your donations, and they are tax-deductible. We also meet the requirements for corporate matching, employee giving and volunteer grant programs.
Our volunteers are constantly on the lookout for available purebred Goldens and Golden mixes. Many of our dogs are "pulled" from high kill shelters in North and South Carolina, where they have been abandoned or brought in by animal control. Many of these dogs have been abused, and almost all have been neglected their entire lives. Others have been surrendered by their owners. Our Goldens range in age from puppies to seniors, and we feel that each deserves a stable "forever" home where it can reach its full potential. Although we rescue Goldens and their mixed friends specifically, we do occasionally help Labs and others we call "Goldenhearts" who are in urgent need of care.
We operate through a network of passionate foster homes. Our volunteers are committed to our Goldens and to the humane treatment of all animals. We work to promote responsible pet ownership within the community through the advocacy of spay/neuter education. Together, we have many years of canine rescue experience, and the majority of these years have been a love affair with this wonderfully goofy breed called Golden Retrievers!
Help a dog find a forever home by fostering. Our rescue covers all veterinary care and monthly preventatives. You provide the TLC. If you are interested, please fill out a foster application. If you can't foster, we are always looking for volunteers to help out in other ways.
