Golden Rescue relies solely on the financial support of generous donors to rescue Golden Retrievers. Unfortunately, there are too many Goldens who need rescuing on an all-too-regular basis. Asher was thrown out of a moving car on a major highway in Ontario. Thankfully, the car behind picked him up and then called Golden Rescue. Sadie was found at Casino Rama wandering with ‘FREE’ spray painted on both sides of her matted fur. Thelma and Louise, seniors at 12 years old, were abandoned in the forest north of Montreal with their microchips cruelly cut out of them, drenched by rain, hungry and frightened. These painful stories only skim the surface of the Goldens who have landed in our arms. They are then rehabilitated, healed, and matched to their forever families to experience their happily-ever-after.
On average, it costs approximately $1,700 to put one Golden through our program. Most of these costs are devoted to medical care. If restorative surgery or long-term care is needed, particularly for our older Goldens, the costs can be much higher.
Therefore 100% of your donation goes towards helping our magnificent Goldens.
