Golden Retriever Club of Greater Los Angeles Rescue
Walk With Us Through Fields of Gold
Racing to change the lives of Golden Retrievers, and the people who love them!

The Golden Retriever Club of Greater Los Angeles Rescue was incorporated as a tax exempt 501c(3), charitable foundation in 2001, but we’ve been in informal operation for many years, making us the oldest Golden Retriever rescue organization in continuous operation in southern California. Long before the rescue was incorporated, members of the parent breed club, the Golden Retriever Club of Greater Los Angeles, were doing informal rescue work, rehoming displaced dogs and using its network of breeders, enthusiasts and families to help Goldens in need. Since its incorporation, GRGCLA Rescue has grown into a fully-sustainable, non-profit organization.

GRCGLAR has taken in over 3,000 Golden Retrievers since 2003 and our all-volunteer force numbers over 120 strong in six southern California counties. Although we stand ready to help any golden retriever in need, our commitment to the neediest cases, the old, the sick and the injured, remains unparalleled in the rescue community. With our ever-growing family of volunteers, adopters, foster homes and supporters, we’ve established a strong network of helping hands to ensure we’ll be there when we’re needed, and have made a lifetime commitment to all our dogs.

Our Board of Directors and volunteer team include folks with many years of experience with this breed in all different capacities, from breeding and showing, to training and dog sports such as obedience, agility, Rally and hunting. Folks who are forced to relinquish their dogs due to death, divorce or financial downturn know that GRCGLAR has the experience, knowledge and expertise to make the best possible placement for their dog, and the organization’s stability and longevity provide their dog with the best possible safety net and assurances for a lifetime of help and protection.

In a 2006 annual survey conducted by the National Rescue Committee of the Golden Retriever Club of America, GRCGLA Rescue ranked amongst the three largest Golden Retriever rescues in the U.S. What began as the dream of a few, blossomed into a rescue effort that makes a real difference in the lives of Golden Retrievers and the families who adopt them.

JJ Walter $200.00 "I'm very proud to donate this money to Golden Retriever Rescue. I, myself, am a rescued Golden Retriever (mostly) that was saved by Beth when she lived in San Antonio. I have only run with Beth a few times and was disappointed that she ran so fast that I couldn't often stop and smell a bush. I quickly forgot about that though because she fed me really good food when we got back to the house. If you see Beth, please ask her to feed me more and bathe me less."
Billy (Boo) Walter $100.00 "I don't like running with Beth because she never stops to let me smell the bushes. But I'm glad she is running in Long Beach for Golden Retriever Rescue because I really like golden retrievers. I'm not a golden retriever, but I was once mistaken for a golden retriever puppy, which saved my life. Things are pretty good now because Beth thinks I'm very cute. If you see her at the race, please tell her that it is ok for me to sleep on the furniture. Beth is confused on this point. "
Bruce, Stefanie and Kids Gerhardson $50.00 "Keep up the good work Dr. Gerhardson"
