   YES, WE GET YOUNGSTERS!! Please note that we take in dogs of all ages. Because we typically have a waiting list of approved clients, many dogs are adopted before they have a chance to get onto the website.

So if you don't see exactly the dog you're looking for listed here, please fill out an application and let us know what you're looking for. We will do our best to find the right dog for you!


Gulf South Golden Retriever Rescue, Inc. (GSGRR) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization run by a small group of volunteers.  We are home based in the Greater New Orleans, LA area.  We take in purebred Golden Retrievers and Golden Retriever mixes from public shelters and accept owner-relinquished Goldens from the Gulf Coastal states (LA, MS, AL, FL).  We provide our dogs with veterinary care including spaying or neutering as necessary, evaluate their temperament, and socialize them by having them live with foster families. Then the dogs are matched with loving, carefully selected adoptive homes. We place our dogs in adoptive homes in the Gulf South.

Each GSGRR member, officer, and foster care provider is a totally unpaid volunteer with family and work commitments. We strive to respond quickly to every inquiry received, but more importantly, we want to place the right dog in the right home. Should you not receive a timely reply, please click here for our main email address. Please be understanding, however, since we are  trying the best that we can!

Without the help of local Veterinarians we would not be able to save as many dogs as we do. We would like to introduce you to the Clinics and the staff that help us with all the dogs.
