Golden Treasures Rescue

Golden Treasures Rescue (GTR) is an all-volunteer rescue, providing veterinary care, foster homes and permanent new homes for golden retrievers in the Ohio area. We rescue Golden Retrievers wherever we find them

  • Owners of Golden Retrievers sometimes have to surrender their dogs because of health, moving, or work schedule. We help find your dog a new home where he will be loved and nurtured.
  • Golden Retrievers abandoned or taken to shelters need special attention, and Golden Treasures Rescue will help with medical treatment and resocialization of each dog into a new home.

Our adoption fee rarely covers the cost of rescuing these wonderful dogs. We may take in a dog that is already spayed/neutered, but the next one that comes in may be heartworm positive. GT relies on donations, fundraising activities and grants for its income. We do not receive any state or federal funds. And, because GT is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, all donations are tax deductible.

Shady and Sarah

This handsome pair came in together and we'd like to keep it that way. They've been friends their whole lives ((Shady is male and 6 and Sarah is female and 9) and both are house hunting. They lost their home because the family is moving and can't take them along. They're great dogs, lovin' life and hoping to find a forever home together. They're good with kids and other dogs, but we're not sure about cats. Please help us to keep them together.

If you are interested in adopting Shady & Sarah, please fill out our online adoption application.

Par for Paws Update

Sonny Keim was finally able to complete his "speed golfing" event to help raise money for the rescue. He had to postpone the original date due to an injury, but after a short delay, he spent the day at Westfield Country Club, golfing 164 holes. The money he raised put a serious dent in our vet bills. Thank you, Sonny, for conceiving and executing this major fundraiser for Golden Treasures.

A Special Rescue Story

In May 2011 our rescue got a call from a local humane society. A man was keeping a pair of Golden Retrievers in his back yard and allowing them to breed at will. Neither puppies nor parents were not given vet care or socialization. The humane society knew because the older litter of nine puppies were un-socialized chances of them getting adopted through their shelter were slim. So, they asked us to help. We took in the older litter and mom. The Human Society took the six-week-old litter and dad.

After several weeks the puppies made great progress with socialization. But they were still wary of new people and changes in surroundings. We were able to find families willing to put in the extra effort and care needed by these puppies. They were placed in forever homes.

One of the puppies, Skidder went to his new home in MI. But, as the family pulled into the driveway at the end of their 4-hour drive, they opened the car door and Skidder bolted. That was in June, 2011. Once we learned Skidder was missing, the amazing rescue to save his life began.
