Canada’s Dog Ban: Click here to find out how you can help.

There are many reasons for surrender and we are here to support you (i.e. relocation, unaffordable medical costs, family lifestyle changes, poor behavior, not enough time to devote).

Every Golden who comes into our program is placed with a loving foster family where they are cared for until they are ready to find their forever family. Our fosters are experienced and passionate about Golden Retrievers. It’s important to note that we have no kennels as we want all of our Goldens to live as part of a family.

All of our Goldens get the vet care they require including being spayed/neutered, microchipped, and required surgeries prior to going to their forever families.

We take rehoming very seriously. All of our adopters are carefully screened and interviewed to ensure that they are able to meet the needs of our Goldens. We also perform reference checks and home visits prior to forever families being approved. Because we are so diligent and careful, we have very few Goldens returned.

If you are thinking about surrendering your Golden and need our support, please call 416-657-2445 or 1-866-712-8444 or email us at
