The Golden Retriever Club of America National Rescue Committee offers resources to connect prospective owners with golden retrievers up for adoption throughout the United States. Information about golden retriever adoption in your area can be found through its website.
The Golden Retriever Club of America is a generally well-respected organization to contact if you are especially interested in adopting a certified purebred golden retriever. The GRCA mission statement declares a commitment to recognizing and promoting the American Kennel Club standard for the breed.
Local chapters of the Humane Society also provide resources for pet adoption. Most chapter websites keep up-to-date information on all adoptable animals, allowing hopeful adoptive pet parents to quickly access breed and age information. The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals also keeps a database of affiliated shelters and adoptable animals through its national website.
