In January, EGRR, along with several other Florida Golden Retriever Rescue Groups, will be receiving Golden Retrievers from Turkey.  The plight of Goldens in Turkey is pitiful, although the dogs we will be receiving are all in good health.  We are not accepting any applications for the Turkish dogs at the time, but will be doing so shortly.  We will keep you advised.  However, we are accepting applications for the dogs we currently have.  See Special Needs Dogs below

EGRR & EGRC Again Join Forces Participating in the Morris Animal Foundation K-9 Cancer Walk

On Sunday, January 24, 2016, Everglades Golden Retriever Rescue and our sister organization, Everglades Golden Retriever Club, will again join forces to walk in the Morris Animal Foundation’s fourth K-9 Cancer Walk in Tradewinds Park, Coconut Creek. In 2015, our team had a very successful walk, raising $1386.  Our team was the third largest team participating.  With your help, we expect to have an even larger, more spirited team, and to amass more donations, to help fight the surge that is killing our beautiful, sweet Goldens.

Monies raised at the K9 Cancer Walk will go toward:
– Providing new treatments for dogs suffering from cancer
– Developing prevention strategies
– Training new researchers who will help find preventions, treatments and ultimately a cure

To learn more about the Morris Animal Foundation and the work they do, visit their website, Morris Animal Foundation To join our team,or to make a donation to our team, click on Make A Donation below.

If you are unable to participate in the walk, but would like to be counted as a team member, you can join our team as a “Sit. Stay” member.


It’s here!  We are very excited to offer our 2016 calendar full of Golden love.  This 12 month, 8 ½ x 11 calendar, features 13 full color pages of EGRR rescue dogs as well as some of our members’ dogs.

Each $15.00 donation (including shipping) gets you one copy of this beautiful calendar which will serve as a monthly reminder of the good works your contributions do.  All proceeds allow us to continue providing care for the Goldens in our program.

They make great stocking stuffers and gifts for the upcoming holidays. They will look great in your office, kitchen, or any place else you’d like to display these beautiful Goldens.

This is a limited edition run  so when they’re gone they’re gone.  (We have only 12 left.)

Special Needs Dogs Nov 15

sick dog 2The Marines are looking for a few good men, but EGRR is looking for a few great families! Those of you, who follow our site, know that new dogs have been few and far between in recent times.  But that has changed and now we have several special needs dogs languishing in the kennel at Clint Moore due to a lack of foster homes.  We are currently accepting applications to either foster or foster-to-adopt these dogs.

Thor is a 2½ year old boy, with an abundance of energy and no training.  In addition, he has SAS, a heart condition that affects Goldens, and that may shorten his life, especially if he does not learn how to calm down.

Daisy is a delicious 8 year old girl, who gets along with dogs and cats.  She had the misfortune of being bitten by the wrong tick, and now has Babesia.  Although she has completed treatment, and is in remission, this disease never completely goes away and can affect the immune system.

Beckett is a beautiful 6 year old male, who doesn’t like cats and should be an only dog. He is Heartworm positive.  He has begun his treatment and is looking for a foster-to-adopt family to see him through this long process.  This alone, would not make him special needs but he does have skin issues, which currently require frequent special baths.

Gunner is a 10 year old, grossly obese Heartworm positive boy.  He came in with his littermate Hunter, however, examination revealed that Hunter was riddled with cancer, and so we helped him to the Rainbow Bridge.  Since Gunner has never been an only dog, a home with another dog would be perfect for him.

Cooper would like to announce that his brother, Bear, has gone to the Rainbow Bridge.  Out of the clear blue, he was hit by an autoimmune disease that destroyed his red blood cells.  Cooper continues to live in a wonderful foster home, but now, more than ever he wants a “furever” home.
