About Us

We are Animal Rescuers. We take in helpless, unwanted, homeless creatures without planning for selection. We are a quiet but determined army, and we are making a difference every day. Nothing is more rewarding than saving a life. No higher recognition than watching them thrive. There is no greater joy than seeing a puppy play, who only days ago, was too weak to eat. By the love of those who we have been privileged to rescue, we have been rescued. We know what unconditional love really is. We have seen it shining in the eyes of so many grateful little souls. We are animal rescuers. Our work is never done. Our homes are never quiet but our hearts are always full.

Founded in 2001, Golden Retriever Freedom Rescue (GRFR) is a nonprofit, charitable 501(c)(3) all volunteer rescue organization. Our mission is to rescue, foster, rehabilitate and adopt abused, neglected, and unwanted Golden Retrievers and Golden-like dogs to permanent homes. All of our Goldens are currently in foster homes which enables GRFR to better assess the temperament of each Golden for matching to the appropriate permanent home and provides prospective owners the opportunity to visit the Golden in a non-kennel environment.

Golden Retrievers placed by GRFR are not suited for an outside-only life and require a place in the home that they can identify as their territory. GRFR attempts to place their Goldens in the appropriate home environment and several interviews will be held between the prospective owners and GRFR which includes a home visit prior to placement.

The Golden Retriever lives to satisfy its family. Consequently obedience training is strongly recommended to ensure maximum bonding and the mutual satisfaction of both the Golden and its owners.

If you are interested in adopting a Golden Retriever, please fill out the Adoption Application or contact us at 303-749-8499.

The placement fee is from $175.00 to $350.00 which covers the cost of medical treatment (spay/neuter, vaccinations and heartworm check) given before the Golden is adopted. Senior Goldens (older than 8 years) and Goldens with special (medical/physical) needs may be adopted at a reduced fee depending on the situation.

We are always in need of Donations and Volunteers.  If you or anyone you know would like to help, please come join our family by clicking on the appropriate link above. Thanks again for supporting our efforts to help these wonderful Goldens!
