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.

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.
