It Takes Dozens of Volunteers to Keep
GRRSN has no paid staff. Everything we do to help homeless Goldens is done by volunteers. Some of our volunteers spend several hours a day and others much less. Your contribution makes a difference in a dog's life.....
If you are available to volunteer, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org . Home Visit and Transport Volunteers are needed.
Thank you, we know your time is valuable.
Congratulations! I am pleased to announce that Golden Retriever Rescue Southern Nevada has been accepted as a participating member of the Animal Welfare Fund in the 2013 Western CFC regions.
GRRSN's CFC designation code is 83351. CFC donors will use this code to indicate GRRSN as their designated charity.

Sam at his first breakfast at Sunrise Cafe.
Sadie has filled a void in our family. We have had two Golden Retrievers who have passed. Sadie is playful and always smiling. Our children have grown and moved out, but they come by often, and so do the grand kids. Sadie gets so excited when the house is full of people. She loves when there is a sleep over, because she stays in "the pink room" with our grand daughters...and yes, in the bed too. There's never a dull moment around here! It feels so very natural to have "Sadie Mae" as part of our family.
The Roberts Gang
It all started 6 years ago, this past July. My husband and I have never seen eye to eye on how many dogs we should have. I wanted them all! But, he being the practical one, set limits. We had one dog, 2 cats, and who remembers what else at the time. We were watching television one night and out of nowhere he says, “You can get another dog.” Well, I was shocked! You better bet I jumped all over that! I was really skeptical though! At that time, houses were going into foreclosure by the dozens and people were abandoning their pets like crazy! I was afraid, to say the least, of going to the shelter to adopt a dog without knowing some history. You see, our house was quite harmonious and I didn’t want to upset that! And I never believed in buying a pet from a breeder!!! There are just too many that need rescuing! So, with those restrictions I certainly never in a million years thought I, of all people, would be blessed with a Golden Retriever! Well, one day while driving West on the Summerlin Expressway I pulled up behind a white Jeep Cherokee. It had a license plate frame that said, “GRRSN Golden Retriever Rescue”. I had never heard of the rescue before. I surely believed that this was a sign from my Maker. I look for those all the time! I ran right home and got on line. There was a dog I liked, Sheila. I put in a call to GRRSN. The next day that dog was labeled “adoption pending”. There was a new dog named Charlie so I called again. Katie called me back. We made arrangements for her to bring Charlie over. In the meantime, the foster Mom called him Paddy Boy because his fur was so red. She thought he needed an Irish name. They came over and it was love at first sight! He was nobody else’s dog but mine! We had 6 glorious, fabulous, unforgettable years together with lots of thanks to the Golden Retriever Rescue of Southern Nevada!!!!! Unfortunately, I am sending this email to you because it is time to add Paddy Boy to the Rainbow Bridge’. He passed away the morning of September 15th at the great, old age of 14!
“I think we have a dog for you, Sue. His name is Rusty.” It was a telephone call from Golden Retriever Rescue Southern Nevada to my mom.
And, it was the message relayed to me from my Mom. It had been only a matter of weeks since losing “Champ,” my Mom’s treasured golden who had also been a rescue golden. Cancer had taken him quickly and the loss was still tender.
We talked it over and there were several e-mail exchanges about this newly found golden retriever who had been turned in by a man who said he had found him wondering in the desert. Was my mom ready for a new dog this soon? In addition, how big was he? She is in good health, yet, at the age of 85, I had serious concerns about his size, strength, obedience, temperament.
OK, I had concerns. . . .
A day and time were arranged to meet ‘Rusty’ at a local veterinarian office close to where my mom lives in Summerlin. We were both excited and hesitant at the same time. Waiting in the lobby, the side door opened and out bounded ‘Rusty’ into my mother’s open arms.
He is gentle, loving, and obedient. Most of all, he is a true companion for my mom.
Thank you golden Retriever Rescue!
Here is a picture from that initial greeting and one of Rusty in our back yard with Mom.
Sandy has been a true blessing in our lives! Our family was dealing with an unexpected death in the family and the loss of our 16 year old Lewellyn Setter, and we decided to cheer ourselves up with a Golden Retriever.
She has created so much joy in our house by continually playing with her stuffed animals (it looks like a zoo around here), trying to engage her new friend, the Schnauzer, in wrestling matches, learning how to get the morning paper, and showering us with dog kisses throughout the day.
We think she's adjusting great to our home. She has put on a healthy amount of weight, her coat has turned a deeper shade of red and is much thicker and she's happy. Her head is held high, she doesn't cower anymore and she now sleeps with us at night.
She has learned to trust her new parents and we love our new addition to the family!
Thank you to Diane and the Golden Retriever Rescue for bringing Sandy into our lives.

As you may remember from our application to golden retriever rescue, we had
not been without a dog in our entire 47 years of marriage. For the first
time, we took a year and a half break after our last dog passed away. We
have had three previous rescue goldens, along with a variety of other dogs.
When we made the decision to get a dog again, we decided we were too old for
housebreaking and a puppy. Our request was for a two year old male. It
only took about six weeks before you called, and as you can see, Buddy is
perfect. We wanted to send you this picture right away. We don't have any
"together" pictures in our computer but believe me when I tell you there are
plenty on our phones including pictures of him with our grandsons in his
kennel. He is only in his kennel when we leave the house for short periods
but he goes in there sometimes on his own, so must have been kennel trained
before we got him.
Our daily adventures include long walks. He can do five miles but then we
have to lift him back into the car. He recently did a three mile hike with
us and the grandkids in Red Rock Canyon. He loves going in the backyard
with my husband when he is practicing his pitching and putting. For
Christmas, Buddy got a tennis ball shooter. You can shoot balls out one at
a time, and he sits patiently waiting to see where they are going to land.
Buddy has brought so much energy and joy into our lives. And I think he knew
from day one that he was where he belonged. We had bought him a bed the day
before we picked him up and placed it on the floor next to our bed. The
first night, I said "Buddy, get in your bed," and no one was more shocked
than I when he actually did it. Every night he is the first one in bed,
waiting for us to get there.
P.S. We love the fact that he has no tail. No more items getting swept off
coffee tables. Just another bonus.
Thank you for your good work,
George and Olga Lyles
Hello and Happy New Year to the Golden Retriever Rescue group...
I received you letter today asking about Roxy... she is such a love bug, and will never be let go from our family. I look at her daily thinking, how in the world anyone could ever let this loving creature go... the love we give her daily does not compare to the reciprocation of what we receive from her daily.... she is so very well trained (did find out she does like to chew shoes, socks and my sons shorts) but we have resolved that minor issue...
We love her and she is now an official part of our family! I now couldn't even imagine life without her.
I am thinking of a new friend for her, potentially... so if you have a girl around the same age, I would not be opposed to adding another addition.
Happy New Year to the group that has made the McCormick family complete! Wishing nothing but great healthy, happiness, joy and laughter for the new year!
