We place each golden in foster care for the best possible environment while awaiting their new family.
Our talented volunteers have created a successful, coordinated system that helps get our goldens through the intake process and ready for foster care and assessment as quickly as possible for the safety and comfort of the dog.
We would like to have enough foster homes ready to accept waiting goldens as quickly as possible. The sooner a golden reaches a foster home and final assessment, the sooner they are ready for their forever family.
How You Can Help:
You can supply the missing ingredient to our recipe for success by becoming a foster home. Help save a 4-legged, furry life!
1. Is it Easy?
Easy = nothing and has no reward.
Fostering is the single reward that fills multiple hearts at once – the golden, the adopting family and yours!
2. Will I fall in love with my foster?
Yes. Goldens are notorious heart stealers.
3. Will it be hard to let go of my foster?
Yes. Concentrate and revel in the joy the new family feels and you’ll be OK.
Besides, we have found that once a family has one of our goldens it’s hard to stay away from us so you’ll usually be reunited with your
foster at one of our events or our annual reunion picnic.
4. Is fostering really for me?
Imagine yourself years from now; you’re going through your family album of pictures with a friend.
Page after page you point lovingly to each picture and tell the story with a smile on your face and warmth in your heart.
Will your friend understand how full your heart really is as you go through your album of fostered golden retrievers?
Do you have the heart to save a life then let it go to live to its fullest?
(And don't forget the patience and strong constitution to live through those few fosters that seem to hang from the chandelier 24/7 and deliver unmentionable items at the most inopportune time! You will turn them over to their new family with joy in your heart!)
