What is Healing Hearts?

Taking a dog into rescue is more than just finding a new home.  It’s about making sure that each dog is healthy and stable before adopted to ensure that this will indeed be the last home the dog goes into. That sometimes requires months of medical treatment for heartworm or tumors or injured legs. Sometimes it requires months of therapy to work on behavior issues stemming from abuse or neglect. It’s all costly – both financially and emotionally.

healing-hearts-image-2We feature these special dogs on our Healing Hearts page to show you our dogs that are under medical care and not available for adoption yet. However with your generosity and becoming a caregiver for their medical treatments, we always hope to feature them some day on our Available Goldens page when they are ready for their forever home!

Check out our current precious dogs on our Healing Hearts page.  They need your help!

Take a look at our Golden Retrievers available for adoption!

Each week we accept additional golden retrievers into our program who then receive their veterinary checkups and are moved to foster homes for basic evaluation or to complete any medical treatment they may need before being adopted. Be sure to click on the dog’s name below for a close up view and please check back often for updates.
