Golden Rescue is a 'rescue' organization. As such, we help Goldens who need a second chance and we believe we can responsibly rehome. Very often, we know very little about their history. Although we make every effort during our fostering process to assess the Goldens in our care, we cannot predict their behaviour in your home as some behaviours may present themselves later or there may be a ‘trigger’ we didn’t experience.
We also have all of our Goldens assessed by a qualified veterinarian and all conditions that are discovered are treated and disclosed before the Golden goes up for adoption; however, conditions could develop later that were not discovered by the vet at the time of examination. It costs an average of $1,700 to put one Golden through our program. The adoption fee for Goldens rescued within Ontario and Quebec is $500. The adoption fee for Goldens rescued from countries outside of Canada is $800. These fees help us tremendously to defer the ever-increasing cost of care and transportation.
Responsible pet ownership can be an expensive proposition and we urge you to consider the potential ongoing costs of owning a dog before making the decision to adopt.
At the present time our Goldens are being fostered in Ontario and occasionally in Quebec. During the adoption process a home visit needs to be arranged with your family and you must agree to come and visit the dog at his/her foster home. If the match is a good one, you'll need to arrange appropriate transportation to bring the dog home with you.
