Golden Retriever Rescue Organizations (2022): Golden Retriever Rescues by State

Golden Retriever Rescue

Congratulations on your decision to rescue a Golden Retriever!

This verified list of Golden Retriever Rescues is the most complete and up to date on the web (at publication). It has been compiled from multiple sources, including searching state by state. We have done our best to correctly list the service area and checked every link for accuracy and currency. In some cases we have noted changes (closures, transitions, changes to service areas) for organizations that are listed as active on other websites. All links were active (except where noted) as of the date of publication.

If you don’t find what you need under your state, try searching the list for nearby states, many organizations cover a territory that spans state lines. We have tried to list all rescues with territory overlapping each state even if they are headquartered in another state, but may have missed a few

If you haven’t decided on adopting from a rescue vs. a breeder, check out our article on Adopting a Golden Retriever, there is a special section on Golden Retriever Rescues.

Please be aware that some golden retriever rescue organizations will not place dogs outside their service territory. This can be due to the need for home visits, or because they already have a long waiting list. Don’t forget you can get on the waiting list for many rescues at once.

We update this page as often as possible, new information is always welcome. If we left out an organization, you are starting a new rescue, or details are incorrect please Contact Us and let us know.
