Become a Volunteer With Golden Beginnings
For anyone who has a little extra room in their house (and heart) that they can share for a while, I highly recommend becoming a foster family. Our five year old told me recently, "Mom, we rescue golden retrievers. We're rescuers, that means we're heroes! ...Even though we can't fly."

I have been fortunate to establish long lasting relationships with different members of this wonderful organization. If you want to meet incredible Goldens and their rescuers, please come out to some of our many events or better yet – become a volunteer!
Fostering was the best therapy for a broken heart … I've met so many people who are dedicated and devoted to rescuing Goldens and I am honored to call them my friends.

On Christmas day 2000, I adopted Abby as a 5-week old puppy, and that is when I fell in love with Golden Retrievers. There are so many ways to volunteer for this great organization, and we can always use people with a little bit of time here and there.
I was amazed to learn that there was even a need for a Golden Retriever rescue group because I always thought “who doesn’t love a Golden?!” I am so thankful to have found others that are dedicated to making sure these precious babies are taken care of forever!
We got involved in rescue after losing our first Golden, Reyna, very suddenly to hemangiosarcoma. A home without a Golden was intolerable! We discovered Golden Beginnings while searching for an adult Golden to adopt. We believe that our beloved Reyna was somehow pushing us, and everything we do now for Golden Beginnings will always be in her honor.

Anyone who has visited our website knows how addictive it is. One day, I saw that GB needed volunteers for the picnic and decided to offer my assistance. After the picnic, I joined the adoption team and I've been volunteering with this team for almost 2 years. My husband and I are both very busy, but the great thing about volunteering is that you can dedicate a little or a lot of time to it. GB has so many great volunteers which makes the events a lot of fun, and it is very rewarding to be a part of the success stories!
With two dogs in residence, space became an issue, so we don’t foster a lot any more. We joined the Adoption Team so we could continue helping these wonderful animals. We also are very glad to do intakes and transports when we can. Life can be very interesting for Adoption Team members, and it is very rewarding when we match one of our families with the right golden. We both feel very fortunate to work with this wonderful group of people, and through GBGRR to share our deep love of the Golden Retriever breed.

I love dogs, all dogs, and hate the abuse and neglect they suffer from humans. As much as I want to stop that and save everyone of them, I can't. However, I lost my heart to a wonderful breed of dogs called Golden Retrievers, and fortunately for them-and me-there is Golden Beginnings Golden Retriever Rescue. GBGRR doesn't just put a band aid on these wonderful dogs, they turn their lives around. The rewards of volunteering are priceless.
Our Golden, Gracie Rae, is the reason I got involved with rescue. We adopted her in April 2007 (before our daughter was born) and she is incredible. She is SO wonderful with our daughter and the most loving and loyal dog you can imagine. Golden Beginnings has so many different volunteering opportunities available. The people involved in this organization are truly passionate about their love for Goldens and finding the perfect home for each and every one of them. If you want to help, I would encourage you to contact us. You won't regret it!
I have covered the gamut....adoption team, hotline team, fostering, Meet and Greets, and the proud owner of two alumni! I can not say enough about the kind people involved in this organization! When you become involved in GBGRR, you become one of many wonderful, caring, loving friends who all have something in common.....our love for our Goldens!
