Adopt: Give a Golden their forever home

Our Goldens come from private homes, area shelters and other rescues from the North Florida and South Georgia areas. All adoptable dogs are heart worm negative, current on all vaccinations, wormed, spayed/neutered and have been examined by rescue veterinarians at Green Cove Animal Hospital, Greenbriar Animal Hospital, San Jose-Beauclerc Animal Clinic, Lakewood Animal Clinic or Merrill Animal Clinic.

Be a foster to a Golden

Open your home and your heart to a Golden waiting for their forever home and you will receive so much in return. Fosters are our most important volunteers. They provide the love, care and attention our Goldens need while waiting for the home that will be theirs for years to come. Learn more about being a Foster .

 Ask GREAT for help

GREAT Rescue can help find a new home for your Golden when circumstances prevent you from being able to care for them like they deserve. Learn more about Surrendering your Golden and giving them what they need.
