Volunteering and Donations

We are always looking volunteers to help out this worthly cause. People willing to provide foster homes for those dogs that need to be removed from their homes immediately are particularly in need. We receive no governmental funding or private sector endowments; we rely solely on our own fundraising efforts, donations and adoption fees to continue the work we do. The cost to GRRI-NJ to rescue just one healthy Golden can be well over $200. Many of our Goldens require even more substantial veterinary care. To partially cover these costs, GRRI-NJ has the following fee schedule: $10 Application for Adoption filing fee. This is a non-refundable filing fee that must be submitted prior to the application being processed. Payment of this fee does not guarantee that the application will be approved, nor does it guarantee that you will be given a dog by GRRI-NJ. The adoption application fee will not be applied towards any adoption fee. Adoption Fees: Puppies to 16 weeks: $350, with a $100 deposit which will be returned when proof of neutering/spaying is returned to us. Dogs 17 weeks to 8 yrs: $250, with a $100 refundable deposit should the dog be adopted intact due to health or other concerns. Neutering/spaying must occur within 30 days of adoption. Pairs: $350, with a $100 refundable deposit should the dogs be adopted intact due to health or other concerns. Neutering/spaying must occur withing 30 days of adoption. Seniors and Special Needs: Donation requested While we don't have a set "surrender fee" for dogs being given to us for adoption, we do ask that a donation be given to help offset the costs of our operation.
