Adoption Process

Adopt A New Best Friend!

Golden Re-triever Rescue will consider adoptive families in New Jersey and surrounding areas only. This is simply due to logistics and distance of travel for our volunteers.

Every Golden has a different personality, temperament, energy, comfort with kids and other animals, medical needs and more.

We take all these factors into consideration when making a fur-ever home match.

We are very careful about the placements we make.

We do our best to match the right Golden with the right adoptive home because we want this to be the pet's permanent home.
