Surrendering Your Golden Retriever
Please note: This page contains information for owners needing to relinquish their Goldens. If you are a shelter or have found a lost or stray golden, please call us at (281) 480-4942 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Once your Golden is in our program, we provide it with a high quality diet, socialization, exercise, any beginning or continuing training that may be necessary, as well as any additional medical care. All Goldens in our program become extended members of either our own, or the fostering home's family. They are treated with love, affection, gentleness and encouragement.
Great care is given to finding a perfect match between your dog's personality and the lifestyle of the adopting family. It is our goal to find permanent, loving homes for each of our foster dogs where they will be cherished and loved for the rest of their lives.
While we wish we could take any and all Goldens into our program, GBGRR is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization staffed entirely by volunteers and we must be realistic about what we can achieve. For that reason, we have listed our surrender criteria below.
Golden Beginnings Golden Retriever Rescue (GBGRR) accepts purebred, and very occasionally mixed, Golden Retrievers who can be responsibly placed into loving, permanent homes. We DO NOT accept:
We also ask that you provide the following prior to relinquishing your dog to GBGRR:
At our discretion, we may waive any of the above requirements if the relinquishing family lacks the ability to meet them, or if leaving the dog in the current home would present a threat to the welfare of the dog.
Because GBGRR is a non-profit organization staffed entirely by volunteers, all donations are used solely for the care of dogs in our program. Therefore, if the relinquishing owner does not spay or neuter their dog prior to acceptance, GBGRR requests a $75.00 donation to cover the costs of the spay or neuter.
Should you wish to place your dog into our program click on the tab below to print our Intake Profile. Once you have thoroughly completed the Intake Profile and Release and attached all the necessary paperwork, you may fax it to us at 855-202-9523 (Texas Tollfree) or mail it to GBGRR, P.O. Box 19848, Houston, TX 77224-9848. Photos may be mailed to the P.O. Box or emailed to email@example.com.
Receipt of your required paperwork does not guarantee your dog a place in our Rescue program.
