Great Lakes Golden Retriever Rescue is dedicated to finding Golden Retrievers in need of their forever home. We work hard to find the right home for the Goldens we receive from various situations. Our Goldens typically come from owner surrenders and shelters. After we take in a Golden, we ensure proper vetting and, if necessary, behavioral training. Our organization is very passionate and dedicated to doing what’s best for our Goldens and we have foster homes throughout the State of Michigan that feel the same way. We adopt dogs to families located in Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, and Wisconsin. If you are interested in adopting one of our Goldens, please complete our adoption application. An interviewer will contact you to help you find the perfect Golden! If you are interested in volunteering with Great Lakes Golden Retriever Rescue, please visit our volunteer page.

Happy birthday GLGRR and Happy Thanksgiving to you! It is our 13th birthday today and we are happy to share it with the holiday because we have a lot to be thankful for. We have so many wonderful and dedicated volunteers that keep this organization together. We couldn't help the Goldens that we do, if we didn't have volunteers. One of the biggest things we are thankful for is our supporters and adopters. Whether you interact with us on Facebook, or have actually adopted a Golden from us, we appreciate each and every one of you. Finding the perfect home for our Goldens is the goal and we wouldn't be able to do that without so many famlies willing to open their home to a Golden in need. Even if you are not in the position to adopt right now, by interacting with us, donating, or buying merchandise we can feel the love and appreciate the support. Thank you to all of you! We know that you are also thankful for your Golden, so share a photo of your Golden in the comments! ... See MoreSee Less
