A non-profit 501(c)(3) charitable organization
The Golden Retriever Club of Greater Los Angeles
Rescue was incorporated as a tax exempt 501c(3), charitable foundation
in 2001, but we've been in informal operation for many years, making us
the oldest Golden Retriever rescue organization in continuous operation
in southern California. Long before the rescue was incorporated,
members of the parent breed club, the Golden Retriever Club of Greater
Los Angeles, were doing informal rescue work, rehoming displaced dogs
and using its network of breeders, enthusiasts and families to help
Goldens in need. Since its incorporation, GRGCLA Rescue has grown into
a fully-sustainable, non-profit organization.
GRCGLAR has taken in over 4,500 Golden Retrievers since 2003 and our
all-volunteer force numbers over 180 strong in six southern California
counties. Although we stand ready to help any golden retriever in need,
our commitment to the neediest cases, the old, the sick and the
injured, remains unparalleled in the rescue community. With our
ever-growing family of volunteers, adopters, foster homes and
supporters, we've established a strong network of helping hands to
ensure we'll be there when we're needed, and have made a lifetime
commitment to all our dogs.
Our Board of Directors and volunteer team include folks with many years
of experience with this breed in all different capacities, from
breeding and showing, to training and dog sports such as obedience,
agility, Rally and hunting. Folks who are forced to relinquish their
dogs due to death, divorce or financial downturn know that GRCGLAR has
the experience, knowledge and expertise to make the best possible
placement for their dog, and the organization's stability and longevity
provide their dog with the best possible safety net and assurances for
a lifetime of help and protection.
In a 2006 annual survey conducted by the National Rescue Committee of
the Golden Retriever Club of America, GRCGLA Rescue ranked amongst the
three largest Golden Retriever rescues in the U.S. What began as the
dream of a few, blossomed into a rescue effort that makes a real
difference in the lives of Golden Retrievers and the families who adopt
