Golden Retriever Rescue of El Paso is a breed-specific, 501(c)(3) non-profit rescue organization dedicated to rescuing golden retrievers. We rescue stray, abandoned, or released golden retrievers, provide medical care, rehabilitate, nurture and adopt them into loving forever homes.
At least, 10% of all dogs waiting to be euthanized at the City Shelter are goldens or golden mixes. This is a terrible injustice to such a noble and loving breed. As most people know goldens are one of the most popular breeds in America. Their friendly, intelligent and loving personalities are hard to resist and melt even the coldest of hearts. They've never met a person they didn't like, love being part of a pack, are the happiest with their families and make terrible watch dogs. Sadly, these same outstanding qualities make the golden retriever breed a popular breed for exploitation by unscrupulous breeders seeking to make money on the sale of golden puppies. Arguably golden puppies are the cutest in the world, but puppies grow up and become adult dogs and unless you're prepared to feed, train, and provide daily exercise for a dog for the next 10-14 years, don't get a golden.
Owning a golden or any dog is a lifetime commitment and a responsibility that should never be taken lightly. All dogs depend on their human owners for everything in their lives and we owe it to them to do right by them. They are family members, and like family members we need to treat them with all the love and respect they deserve. In turn, we can expect to have many years of unconditional love, companionship and lots of wet kisses. Goldens are very family oriented and the nurturing and love that goes on in any family is what they crave the most. They are highly intelligent, and social animals and may become unruly and destructive if not left to themselves for long periods of time. Naturally, we require rescued goldens to live inside as healthy and happy members of the family. Moreover, goldens are part of the sporting group and require daily exercise and opportunities to socialize with other dogs either at a park or during walks or on play dates. Additionally, they never pass up the opportunity to go visit and play with the neighbor's dog.
As most golden owners will tell you owning a golden is both an awesome responsilbity and a joyous privilege. Once you've owned a golden you can't imagine life without one.
