GRRMF COVID19 impact update

Update: May 19, 2020

During these difficult times we remain committed to rescuing goldens and golden blends in need and providing them with a secure foster home and the medical care they may require. Several of the goldens currently in our foster program have expensive medical needs that we and our wonderful vets are tending to through this pandemic period. Our Sanctuary dogs are tucked safely in their homes receiving the on-going care our Sanctuary program provides to them. Matching and adoptions of our available dogs to our approved adopters on our waiting list prior to the pandemic are continuing.  Our rescue remains open to the dogs and families who need our rescue’s support.

In our adoption application process, we were blessed to have a large number of approved adopters on our waiting list to adopt a golden prior to the pandemic. During the months of March and April, we received an unprecedented amount of applications many of which are currently on hold pending resumption of our home visit process. This process will be resumed when the communities we serve are fully open with the guidance of the CDC and our focus will remain on ensuring the safety of our applicants and volunteers involved in the process. Additionally between our approved adopters waiting list prior to the pandemic, the volume of adoption applications received in March and April and the average amount of rescue dogs we are receiving, under current conditions we estimate the wait time for a dog from our rescue could be 1 year or more at this time.

Due to the above, as of May 4, 2020, we stopped accepting new applications. We regret having to close this one door for now. If you want to seek out adoption at this time, please reach out to shelters or rescues in your area to be that special family who saves the life of a wonderful dog.

We continue to monitor the CDC guide lines for their safety recommendations for the needs of our dogs, rescue and the communities we serve. We look forward to the day we can resume our full application processing again.

Wishing everyone health and better days ahead for all. Stay safe.

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.
