We are dedicated to finding new homes for Golden Retrievers and dogs with “hearts of gold” – those dogs with the temperament, intelligence and loving nature similar to that found in the Golden Retriever. As a rescue, DVGRR cannot verify the genetic purity of any DVGRR dog.
Since 1993, Delaware Valley Golden Retriever Rescue has successfully placed over 3,500 DVGRR dogs into new homes through eastern Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey and other surrounding areas. We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, relying on donations, our supporters, fundraising, and the proceeds of our events and retail store, Pap’s Place for funding.
Our Campus location houses adoptable pets, any lost dogs turned into us, our Buddy’s Animal Rescue Klinic (BARK Hospital), our dog housing and training facility, The Lynne Glennon Sanctuary for Senior Goldens and Puppy Mill Survivors, all administrative services.
