What is a Golden Angel?

Can we see them? How do we know they are there? They are the people who, when a Golden is in need, answer the call in the night, during a snow storm or on summer holidays. They transport precious cargo from a Golden’s old life to their new beginning. They love, cherish, and train until it is time to say goodbye, shedding tears only when the new family has pulled out of sight. They spend hours pouring over adoption applications for Goldens, ensuring a perfect match nearly every time. They tirelessly organize fundraisers, attend events, and manage social media so that Golden Rescue has a dollar to help for another day and can find more hands to help.

Golden Rescue works beautifully because of our many passionate volunteers and here we honour just some of our angels ~ people who are never too busy, too tired or too burnt out. You! You are our Golden Angels. We can’t always see you, but we know you are there. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

The most truly generous persons are those who give silently without the hope of praise or reward.
