#4045 Ella

We stood waiting for Ella to be released from her crate and we knew the minute we saw her at the top of the ramp that it was her. One of us sat in the backseat as we drove home and it was so sweet to see her relax. When we got home, she spent the first day attached to...

#3739 Ripley

Ripley is doing wonderfully. She is perhaps the friendliest, cuddliest Golden we have ever met. She has made friends with almost everyone on the street and greets everyone we come across asking for cuddles. You rarely find her without a toy in her mouth (an adjustment for us, because our last dog wasn’t really into toys) but she is OBSESSED...

#3875 Penny

When my last Golden crossed the Rainbow Bridge suddenly in 2020, I knew my life would always suffer her loss. She was only eight and in good health and when she died of a heart attack right in front of me, I wondered if I could ever love again. I put my name on waitlists but I really didn’t want...

#3456 Benji

Benji was being cared for by GR’s behaviourist in order to learn our Canadian ways as he had some issues that he came upon honestly on the streets of Cairo. We saw him on the GR website and we somehow knew he was our boy. Fortunately for us, GR and their behaviourist agreed that we might be a good fit...

Poor, sweet Rosie was 10 years old when she was dropped off at a horse rescue. This resilient girl was used as a breeding machine, and it was obvious she had just had another litter. Golden Rescue was called and they picked her up immediately. Rosie had mange and horrible red skin with scabs on her teats from recent weaning....

#3766 Cairo

Hello…my name is Cairo. I’m a Golden and I’m around two years old. I recently traveled from Egypt to Canada on a large plane, thanks to Golden Rescue. Wow, what a long trip that was. When I arrived in Toronto, I was introduced to my new parents. I was so happy to see them, especially when they gave me food...

#3679 Philo

I was rescued from the streets of Cairo. When the shelter rescued me, I was in really bad condition as I had mange. I was covered in blood and I could hardly move because of the swelling in my paws. I was also very anemic and had a high fever…a temperature of 41. The shelter started to treat my condition...

#3163 Frickle

Dear sweet Frickle holds every single day with hope, smiles, and tail wags that are unprecedented. She helps us cope through this troubled pandemic. She is so loved and such a special soul, who found her way all the way from Istanbul to me in Ottawa to bring such joy to so many. My parents were locked down again over...

#3808 Bubba

When we first met this beautiful little tripod, he was only 22 lbs. He was very timid and shy. We had three vet appointments for this little guy and he had to be placed on a special, high-calorie, easily-digestible food to put on weight and stop the diarrhea. We had him on special medication for 21 days to get his...
