Triad Golden Retriever Rescue in Greensboro, North Carolina is dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation, and rehoming of Golden Retrievers. Goldens come to the shelter through several pathways:
Most dogs are 2-4 years old, though occasionally some pups as young as 4-6 months and senior Goldens over 8 make their way to the rescue.
Triad Golden Retriever Rescue works cooperatively with other regional rescue groups, so out-of-state adoptions are possible. They'll arrange long-distance adoptions whenever a good match is found. However, priority will be given to families in the local area where a home visit has been carried out.
As a non-profit, volunteer-run organization, Triad Golden Retriever Rescue relies entirely on kind donations, grants, fundraising efforts, and adoption fees to keep operating.
