Who We Are

IGRR is a non-profit volunteer organization dedicated to providing permanent loving homes for Golden Retrievers in need. To achieve this goal we:
  • Provide shelter for unwanted, neglected, abused, homeless and displaced Golden Retrievers
  • Assist in the rehabilitation of dogs with problems
  • Locate permanent adoptive homes
  • Educate the public on issues relating to responsible dog ownership.

    Please understand that we normally do not receive the "perfect Golden" into our organization. Those Goldens typically get to keep their homes.... These Goldens are truely wonderful, but most carry with them a bit of "baggage" and require some training from the start. These dogs truely understand they have been "rescued". They are simply in need of finding a secure "forever home" that will love them and provide them with a lap to place their head.

    Adopting a friend

    Once a Golden enters our program, they are spayed or neutered, brought up to date on all vaccinations, receive a heartworm and fecal check, started on heartworm preventative, and also microchipped for permanent identification.

    Upon completion of the evaluation process, we then place the dog in a foster home. We expose all foster dogs to other dogs, children, cats and other people before placing them on the adoptable list. We have no "time-limit" for our dogs and will keep them in foster care until an appropriate home can be found.

    We have an application process that all potential adopters must fill out before we will discuss a particular dog. Once the process is started, we will work with you and your family to help find the most appropriate Golden for you. We ask that you be patient, as this can take a while.
