Think you want a female dog?
Many of our fosters prefer fostering males because they're easier to integrate into our multi-dog homes. If you're thinking you only want to consider a female dog, please read this!
Abbey: A Black Golden Success Story
My husband and I proudly announce another success story with GRFR! On June 18th, 2013, another beautiful baby girl came into our lives. Being Golden Retriever lovers, and having a great experience with GRFR, it was easy to return to this organization. This time we chose a gorgeous black dog, a precious gem, and named her Abbey (formerly known as June/Lucy). She's a Flat Coated Retriever, whom we affectionally describe as a "Black Golden" and she is amazing! Read more.
Natural Disasters and Your Dogs
It seems that Mother Nature has been very active lately. Between wide-spread wildfires and devastating floods, people have to be ready to leave their houses at a minute’s notice. If you live in an area that is used to being in the line of natural disasters, you probably already have an emergency plan: what will you take, where will you go, how will you get there? But have you asked who you will take? Read more.

Age is just a number, and as you can see in this video, Mandy is a happy, sweet girl who is looking for a forever home. Many of our foster homes will tell you that senior dogs are the easiest dogs to integrate into your home. They are happy to hang out with you and don't expect a 5 mile run each day.
