Neuse River Golden Retriever Rescue, Inc. (NRGRR) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to helping unwanted golden retrievers (Tax ID 56-2025792). Our dogs enter the program from a wide variety of situations. They may be the products of broken homes, surrendered because of changing family situations or family disinterest, found as strays or dropped off at shelters.
The rescue has saved the lives of more than 2,000 dogs. The demand to provide services to golden retrievers in need continues to increase in a challenged economy, and with it, the pressure to rescue even more animals. With help from our donors and leadership from our Board of Directors, we work hard to successfully provide tender care and medical treatment to the displaced golden retrievers who come into our program.

Our territory includes the eastern half of North Carolina from the Triangle area (Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill), north to Virginia, south to South Carolina and east to the Atlantic coast.
When goldens enter the program they are given a medical exam, inoculations, spayed or neutered and then placed in foster care where they will be loved as a member of the foster family until a permanent home can be found.
If you would like to help in the mission to reduce the abuse and neglect of golden retrievers, you can volunteer, foster, make a donation or adopt one of our wonderful dogs.
