Rescue Spotlight: Emerald Coast Golden Retriever Rescue

Emerald Coast Golden Retriever Rescue (ECGRR) is a non-profit rescue group located on the gulf coast of Florida, dedicated to the rescue of Golden Retrievers.  Staffed by volunteers, this rescue group works to find loving permanent homes for Goldens that were abandoned, abused or surrendered. The dogs available for adoption have been checked for health and temperament, and the potential adoptive family is screened to ensure the best match.

Are you interested in adopting a Golden? The ECGRR website has a listing of Golden Retrievers, Labs and Lab mixes available for adoption, as well as an online adoption application. The negotiable adoption fee is the organization’s sole source of income, and covers the cost of health care, vaccinations, and spaying or neutering of the animal.

If you’re not able to adopt a dog right now, this rescue group is looking for loving foster homes for dogs in need. You can also volunteer to help in other ways such as transportation, fund raising, home checks, and helping to raise public awareness.  ECGRR gratefully accepts your tax-deductible monetary donation, as well as donations of needed supplies such as crates, blankets, dog beds, dog food, dog collars, leashes, water and food bowls.  PetMeds was proud to help support this rescue group with a donation of pet supplies.
