GREAT Rescue of Northeast Florida, Inc. Thanks you for your interest in G.R.E.A.T. (Golden Retriever Emergency Assistance Team) Rescue of Northeast Florida, Inc. and in adopting a beautiful, lovable Golden Retriever/Golden mix. GREAT Rescue was founded in 2000 for the purpose of placing wonderful Golden Retrievers, Golden mixes and an occasional dog with a "Golden" heart with wonderful families, is affiliated with the Golden Retriever Club of America Rescue Committee and is a 501 (c) (3) Not for Profit organization. G.R.E.A.T. Rescue operates in NE Florida to circle from Fernandina Beach across the Florida/Georgia Border to Tallahassee, down to, Gainesville and, Ocala, across to Daytona Beach and up the coast to Jacksonville and is the only Golden Retriever Rescue locally based in operation for 16 years with GREAT Board members having a total of 60 years of Rescue experience. Adoptions are based on a per case basis, matching the background of the Golden Retriever to compliment the lifestyle and needs of the family. GREAT does not adopt dogs to families with children under 5 years of age. Goldens come from private homes and shelters, and have been examined by one our rescue veterinarians, are current on vaccinations, wormed, bathed, heart worm negative (or undergoing treatment),spayed/neutered and micro-chipped. Other medical care may include surgeries, treatments and therapy. In return, the new owner (s) must guarantee continued medical care, heart worm preventive, adequate exercise and a caring loving environment. GREAT Rescue is an all-volunteer organization which reserves the right to place or refuse adoptions in compliance with its evaluations and policies. The adoption fee varies with the age, quality and amount of medical care needed for the rescued Golden Retriever. It is usually between $300 and $375 with a higher adoption fee for Golden Retrievers who have been rescued from another country, have an outstanding pedigree, are English Cream Golden Retrievers, have been a service dog, a purebred puppy and Goldendoodles. Puppy adoptions are structured a little differently with GREAT and the new family partnering in the funding of shots and worming. All fees are payable upon possession of the rescued Golden Retriever and are used to assist in future rescues.
