Welcome to the Tennessee Valley Golden Retriever Rescue!

Company Overview and Mission

 
Tennessee Valley Golden Retriever Rescue (TVGRR) group was formed in July 1997:
  To facilitate the adoption of displaced and unwanted Golden Retrievers and Golden Mixes;
  •   To provide a good quality of life for homeless Golden Retrievers and Golden Mixes;
      •   To educate the public in responsible dog ownership; and
  •   To reduce the abuse and neglect of unwanted Goldens through rehabilitation and adoption.

TVGRR is a non-profit organization (501c3) which relies totally on donations from adopters, friends, family, and all Golden lovers. Each year TVGRR places approximately 150 Goldens and Golden Mixes in forever homes; which equates to approximately 2,700 dogs rescued since 1997.

When TVGRR receives a Golden/Golden Mixes, whether received by owner release or acquired by a shelter, they are evaluated for medical needs, checked for heart and intestinal parasites, spayed/neutered, current on all required vaccinations, micro-chipped, and given heartworm and flea preventatives. We strive to have each Golden Retriever/Mix evaluated in a foster home, discovering the temperament and behavior of the dog.


Your donations cover their medical expenses, medicines, temporary boarding, and supplies such as collars and leashes.
