Volunteer with GRRA
Interested in volunteering in the process of rescuing, fostering, and helping our loving Goldens get adopted by a warm, loving family? Then read on!
Become part of our all-volunteer 'pack' of dog-lovers who believe that dogs make people healthier and happier, and are partial to the beautiful, loving Golden Retriever a perennial top pick for the perfect family dog — for good reason!
Even if you haven't much time to spare, there is a place for you. Volunteering an hour or two each month or week, will make a difference for the dogs. To many of us at GRRA, this is the most fulfilling volunteer activity we've been involved with.
Considering fostering? GRRA always has a constant stream of Goldens awaiting entry into the program. These dogs need your help to get out of some really, really bad or abusive situations, get some love and assurance, and be readied for adoption. We cover all vet costs and provide volunteer training so that you will have the skills to give these helpless dogs a second chance to be the loving pets we've known for generations.
