We have been experiencing a gradual but significant decline in the number of dogs coming into Rescue for the past 10+ years and it has it has become even more significant recently. This has resulted in a long waiting list – so long that we have stopped accepting adoption applications at this time. We request your patience and encourage you to explore other avenues to acquire a dog including considering another breed or a mixed-breed. Please consider other rescue groups and monitor your local shelters most of whom have their own website or advertise on www.petharbor.com. If you decide to purchase a puppy please educate yourself first on how to select a reputable breeder by reading the material that is available on the Evergreen Golden Retriever Club’s website www.egrc.org and the Golden Retriever Club of America’s website www.grca.org.
