Thank you! Summer gets new hips!
We met our fundraising goal, and this little Golden Retriever is getting new hips! Read more about her...
Many of the dogs we bring into our program have undiagnosed medical conditions. While Summer's needs were extraordinary, we had the luxury of time to plan for her care. We often need to act more quickly. If you'd like to help provide care for another dog, please consider a tax-deductible donation.

Abbey: A Black Golden Success Story
My husband and I proudly announce another success story with GRFR! On June 18th, 2013, another beautiful baby girl came into our lives. Being Golden Retriever lovers, and having a great experience with GRFR, it was easy to return to this organization. This time we chose a gorgeous black dog, a precious gem, and named her Abbey (formerly known as June/Lucy). She's a Flat Coated Retriever, whom we affectionally describe as a "Black Golden" and she is amazing! Read more.
Natural Disasters and Your Dogs
It seems that Mother Nature has been very active lately. Between wide-spread wildfires and devastating floods, people have to be ready to leave their houses at a minute’s notice. If you live in an area that is used to being in the line of natural disasters, you probably already have an emergency plan: what will you take, where will you go, how will you get there? But have you asked who you will take? Read more.
