Annual Events

Northeast Florida Scottish Games & Festival: Celebrating the heritage of our beloved Goldens, this event has always been one of our most favorite events! Northeast FL Scottish Games & Festival is held annually in February at the Clay County Fairgrounds. Take a look at some heritage photos here.

GoldenFest: Our annual GoldenFest celebration takes place in 2020 on Sunday, March 29 from 2-4pm at Kanine Social in Jacksonville! Golden Retrievers and their families join in on the fun and sun, reuniting with dear friends, and playing with lots of new, furry ones! Look at some of the happy goldens here.

Strut Your Mutt: Best Friends Animal Society and No More Homeless Pets sponsor the annual Strut Your Mutt in September each year, and GREAT board members, adopters, supporters and goldens proudly strut to raise much needed funds for our rescue.
