We are Golden Rescue

Golden Rescue is one of the largest single breed rescue groups in Canada. We work hard to ensure that every Golden who enters our program is placed with a safe and loving forever family. We believe Rescue has no borders. Since 1990, Golden Rescue has found homes for abandoned, unwanted or displaced Golden Retrievers throughout Canada.
