Mission

SUNSHINE GOLDEN RETRIEVER RESCUE is a 501c3 registered rescue group. Since 2005, the volunteers of SGRR rescue Golden Retrievers and Retriever mixes who have been abandoned, abused or relinquished by their owners. We are dedicated to finding the best possible homes for Golden Retrievers and Retriever mixes in need. Going one step further, SGRR often takes in dogs that might appear “less adoptable” because of the physical conditions in which they have been found. We lovingly nurse the dogs back to health and find them homes that provide that extra TLC these dogs need. Our primary coverage includes Eastern New York, Connecticut, New Jersey, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Vermont, Maine.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Heartworm Treatment Program

Due to lack of care, dogs that are not provided monthly heartworm preventative will more than likely become infected with heartworm.  Any dog which is found by a shelter and tested as heartworm positive must be medically treated before it is adopted.  The cost to treat is $650 to $1,200 depending on location.  Since shelters do not have the resources or funds to treat these dogs, they must reach out to rescues such as SGRR to accept the dog into rescue.  The rescue then treats the dog to remove the heartworms and then place the dog for adoption when healthy.   If rescues such as SGRR were not able to accept those dogs which are infected with heartworm, the dogs would be euthanized by the shelters.   6 out 10 dogs or 60% are positive for heartworm disease.  SGRR and fellow rescues are in high demand to save dogs that are neglected and need medical care otherwise they are euthanized by the shelters that do not have the means to treat the dogs.

This program, Special Care and Seniors Program should be possibly called SGRR Doesn't Say No Program. Many dogs may come into SGRR's rescue from shelters or directly from owners (owner releases) because the dog has medical issues or behavioral issues which require costly treatment or training.  This includes Seniors or dogs 7 years and older.  We accepted dogs which had orthopedic issues, buckshot/bullets lodged near bladders, spines, hips, auto accidents, tumors, thyroid illnesses, etc.....all causing discomfort to the dog or functional complications.  All which require expensive surgery or treatment. We find dogs 7 yrs and older require additional medical care and owners are not able to afford the costs to treat. These cases may range from several hundreds of dollars to thousands but we believe every dog deserves a fair chance to live a happy and comfortable life.  These cases are difficult to budget but for 2013 we expect a need for approximately $12,000 minimum.
