Imagine stroking the head of a terrified Golden Retriever freed from a shelter kennel. Imagine assisting a Golden Retriever in need of medical care. Or providing specialized marketing that helps find new homes for our dogs. Or comforting an old dog whose owners have just driven away.
These situations occur daily with our Rescue.
There are numerous ways you can help us provide medical care, public outreach, scout out the shelters or help at a special event. We depend on the dedication of our volunteers so that we make certain no Golden Retriever is left behind.
Here is a list of a few ways we can use your skills:
Checking shelters and shelter websites for Goldens
Socializing with dogs in boarding & providing a belly rub.
Following up with recent adopters
Marketing & PR
Education & outreach
Intakes & adoptions

Your skills and dedication will ensure that our Golden Retrievers will have a better chance at a second life. Many dogs are looking for a warm bed to sleep. Others are looking to be your best friend.....and chase tennis balls.
The Golden Retriever Club of Greater Los Angeles Rescue was incorporated as a tax exempt 501c(3), charitable foundation in 2001, making us the oldest Golden Retriever rescue organization in continuous operation in southern California. Since its incorporation, GRCGLA Rescue has grown into a fully-sustainable, non-profit organization.
GRCGLA Rescue has taken in over 4,000 Golden Retrievers since 2003 and our all-volunteer force numbers over 120 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 & the injured, remains unparalleled in the rescue community. With our ever-growing family of volunteers, adopters, foster homes & 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. Folks who are forced to relinquish their dogs due to death, divorce or financial downturn know that GRCGLA Rescue has the experience, knowledge and expertise to make the best possible placement for their dog. This organization’s stability and longevity will provide their dog with the best possible safety net and assurances for a lifetime of help and protection.
We'll work with your schedule.
