With Great Appreciation

With sincere thanks to the following donors whose contributions in 2015 have helped our rescue dogs in so many ways.

2015 Donor List


Golden Angel Sponsorship Program

Golden Angel Sponsorship Program

Our goal is to ensure every Golden experiences a high quality of life. While 99% of our Goldens find loving homes, a small number are best served by receiving life-long care from Gold Ribbon Rescue due to special needs. These Permanent Foster Goldens enjoy life to the fullest with a permanent foster family. Click to see a beautiful video. about these special dogs. Learn more about our Golden Angel Sponsorship Program and meet our permanent fosters here.

Extraordinary Golden Fund

Extraordinary Golden Fund

When GRR Goldens require atypical medical expenses, GRR's regular membership and adoption fees are unable to cover the costs (even after generous discounts from area veterinarians). Faced with the prospect of turning away or euthanizing Goldens with high medical costs, we created the Extraordinary Golden Fund. This fund provides a means to target donations specifically for extraordinary medical care. All donations are tax deductible. Click here to donate and meet our EGF Goldens.  

Welcome to Gold Ribbon Rescue, the golden retriever rescue society for Central Texas.

We provide three primary functions to fans of golden retrievers:

  1. A network for sheltering, rehabilitation and placing Golden Retrievers in permanent homes in Central Texas. 
  2. Public education about responsible dog ownership and, in particular, about the Golden Retriever breed.  
  3. A forum for Golden Retriever fanciers to meet.

GRR members assist each other with advice and information about training, health problems, and local dog activities.  Occasional social activities include the dogs and give GRR members and friends a chance to meet and enjoy the company of Golden Retrievers.

Gold Ribbon Rescue is an all volunteer nonprofit corporation.  It is recognized as a rescue organization by The Golden Retriever Club of America, Inc.  Member dues, adoption fees, fund raising activities and donations finance its activities.  Donations are tax deductible. GRR does not discriminate based on race, religion, age, national origin, language, sex, sexual preference or physical handicap.
