Our Mission

Long Island Golden Retriever Rescue, Inc. (LIGRR) is a non-profit organization operated exclusively by volunteers dedicated to improving the quality of life of Golden Retrievers who are neglected, abused, or abandoned. Services are also provided to owners who can no longer care for their Golden Retriever. It is our mission to provide veterinary care and loving adoptive homes for any Golden in need - no matter whether the dog is a young puppy or a senior citizen.

Fund Raising

As a volunteer organization, we are dependent on the generous donations of our supporters.

In order to help raise funds, we have a number of items which are made by our volunteers and sold. These items are shown on the Fund Raising page. Of course, if you wish to donate to our cause, you can by simply sending the donation to the address shown on the "Contact Us" tab.

Please be aware that our organization is a 501(c)(3) corporation, and, as such, your contributions are tax deductible.
