Welcome to the Long Island
Golden Retriever Rescue
Hi! Welcome to our Family
Rescue is kind of a strange thing. It doesn’t get done unless a whole lot of
strangers come together. These strangers have one common goal: saving, in our case,
Golden Retrievers. We come from highly diverse
backgrounds and walks of life. We don’t always think the same or agree on a lot
of things. But we always get past it for the sake of the common goal: saving
dogs. In that sense, we at LIGRR are family, frequently the first family a
needy Golden Retriever has had in a very long time. And we love these dogs,
sometimes for only the length of a car ride or the few minutes it takes to give
a treat in the shelter – sometimes much longer.
Then your family enters the
picture. With a wagging tail, a wiggle butt, and a few doggie kisses, our dog
becomes your dog. But we don’t forget the soulful eyes or the shy kisses or
that very tentative tail wagging when we first met your dog.
Please keep us updated on how your Golden Retriever is doing. This is your page – to share stories about
your best pal. We are hopeful that we will have many contributors to this story
page. We are confident that you will enjoy sharing the exploits of your own dog
and reading about many of our adopted Golden Retrievers. Please “keep those
cards and letters coming!”
Actually, from a practical
standpoint, skip the cards and letters, if possible. The quickest way to get
your doggie masterpiece “published” is to email it to
Your stories may be edited to help protect your privacy.
Now, here are some of our
LIGRR success stories. We hope you enjoy reading them at least half as much as
you do playing with your own Golden!! Thank you all for the great homes and the
love you give these guys!
