Based out of Arvada, Colorado, Golden Retriever Rescue of the Rockies was founded in 1996 to help rescue, rehab and place unwanted, abandoned or surrendered Golden Retrievers into loving forever homes. They rehome approximately 300 Golden Retrievers annually (and about 6,000 since they were founded!), typically in cases where owners are no longer able to care for the dog. The dogs are fostered at Phoebe’s Place in Arvada and rehomed to families looking for a new companion.
Not only does the nonprofit provide new homes for the Goldens, but they also work to educate the public on awareness of animal rescue organizations, as well as the importance of researching dog breeds and breeders before purchasing a pet. This outreach works to hopefully prevent more unwanted dogs from being abandoned at shelters.
