Would you love to adopt a Golden? Or perhaps you would like to become a rescue hero by fostering one or more Goldens until they find their forever home.  If you are sure that you can commit to giving a Golden the forever home it deserves, we would love to hear from you!

Please read the following BEFORE submitting your application:

Applicants must live with the EGRR territory.

  • Indian River, St. Lucie, Martin, Palm Beach, Broward, Miami-Dade, and Monroe counties

The Next Steps:

  • After receiving your application an EGRR Board Member will be in touch within 24-48 hours.
