Nova Scotia Golden Retriever Rescue (NSGRR) was started in December 2008.  We are a registered, non-profit rescue.  We are a completely self supporting, fully volunteer based group that is dedicated to the rehoming and rehabilitation of Golden Retriever dogs.  We also take in any other breed of dog that we are asked to help.

 We do not have a shelter as we completely rely on the foster care system.  This means we place the dogs with families who take them into their homes until they have found their forever homes. 

 We receive no government funding or private sector endowments. We rely on our own fundraising efforts and private donations to help pay for animal care and vet costs. Some of the items we sell are home made collars and leashes which can be viewed on our Facebook page.

Most Goldens come to NSGRR directly from owners who have chosen to give up their dogs.  Some of these reason may be due to allergies, divorce,  death in the family or because they were not prepared for the realities of Golden Retriever ownership.   Dogs are a fulltime responsibility and people may find themselves unprepared for the level of responsibility required.  NSGRR also occasionally helps dogs that have been removed from abusive environments or that have been found as strays. NSGRR is dedicated to educating the public, in general, about pet ownership.
