MissionNeuse River Golden Retriever Rescue, Inc. is dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and adoption of Golden Retrievers in need. The organization advocates responsible pet ownership, community education and protection of all dogs.
As of 2020, Neuse River Golden Retriever Rescue, Inc. had saved and enriched the lives of over 4,000 dogs and their forever families. We look forward to helping more Goldens in need, as well as the people who love them.
Our territory includes the eastern half of North Carolina from the Triangle area (Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill), north to Virginia, south to South Carolina and east to the Atlantic coast. We accept any Golden Retriever into our program – regardless of age or medical condition. We partner with shelters to save Goldens, golden-mixes and golden-hearted dogs; and we help families who can no longer care for their Goldens by offering an opportunity to surrender their dogs - knowing that a final outcome is happy and includes a new, loving home.
We have a hard-working heritage that began as a club in the early 1980s and the "passing of a hat" to pay vet bills. Today, our network of volunteers and donors, support rescuing more than 200 dogs a year at a cost of over $200,000 in veterinary care.
We are an affiliated golden rescue with the National Rescue Committee
of the Golden Retriever Club of America, which provides coordinating and networking services for golden rescue groups, as well as developing literature and other resources.
