The number one reason to adopt a rescue Golden is to provide a loving home to a dog that has either never had one or can no longer be cared for by a wonderful owner. Most rescue dogs have learned basic house manners and obedience, so building on this foundation can be quite easy. You know what you’re getting when you adopt a rescue Golden. Their temperament and behavior has already been evaluated and they have been living with a foster family who can give you a good idea of what to expect.

Veterinary care has also been provided including: spaying, neutering, and heartworm testing and treatment if necessary. Finally, G.R.E.A.T.’s primary goal is to place Goldens in what will be their forever home, so we take extreme care in matching our Goldens with an adopting family that matches their personality and needs.

We Have A Few Rules:

You must live in these counties:

Alachua, Baker, Bradford, Clay, Columbia, Duval, Flagler, Marion, Nassau, Putnam, St Johns, Suwannee, Union or Volusia

Adoption applicants who wish to adopt their first dog as an adult will be required to first foster a dog for GREAT Rescue to acquaint themselves with the responsibility, cost, care, time and love needed  of owning a dog of their own.
