Golden Retriever Rescue of Atlanta (GRRA) is an all-volunteer organization dedicated to saving Golden and Labrador Retrievers that are in need of new forever homes. Started in 1991, Golden Retriever Rescue of Atlanta is registered with the State of Georgia and is licensed by the State Agriculture Department as an animal shelter and rescue group.
There are no paid officers or members within GRRA. Volunteers staff the myriad of functions associated with running the complex day-to-day operations of a dog rescue.
The GRRA Rescue team works closely with Georgia animal control organizations to save Golden Retrievers that have found themselves in shelters. We also accept Golden Retrievers from owners and breeders who are no longer able to provide the attention and/or care the dogs deserve.
The GRRA Foster team is a network of volunteers who generously provide the shelter, care, training and love these dogs need in preparation for adoption. GRRA also ensures necessary medical care for each dog is provided before they are adopted.
The GRRA Placement team supports the applicants wishing to adopt a GRRA rescue dog. They conduct interviews, arrange for home checks and help facilitate the best matches between humans and dogs.
Other GRRA volunteers fulfill a variety of essential roles, supporting voicemail, e-mail, administration, accounting, transportation, medical care, technology, fundraising, membership, newsletters, adoption day, and countless other vital functions.
