If you are a GRIN member, you know we are always begging for fosters! The fact of the matter is that we have a terrific foster home base – but we always need more because unfortunately, more dogs need our help – the strays, owner relinquishments and shelter dogs. And we also are anticipating more Turkey dogs next month.
 
If you are a recent approved adopter, you can help us immediately! Taking in one dog this year means the world to us and that dog.
If you’re a member but haven’t adopted from us recently, we can speed you through the approval process. Contact our Foster Coordinator at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
 
If you are not a GRIN member but would like to help, here’s the process. You can fill out a foster application on the website,
citing the best dog’s personality to match your lifestyle so your home is “stress less” as you foster. (This is all in case you fall in love with your foster and ‘fail” – meaning you want to adopt the furry pet!) If you are approved we do require you become a GRIN member before you can foster.
 
You will – as all of our foster homes – be paired with a “Foster Buddy” – someone who can walk you through any adjustments, call in prescriptions or preventatives as needed, etc. GRIN covers all medical needs. Please check out our website for more information on fostering under the volunteer tab.
 
Think of fostering this way. By showering a dog with love and affection and helping him relearn trust and love, you’re giving him a great second chance at a good life!

Golden Sponsorships - How you can help

We have many goldens in our program who are without sponsors and need your help and support. So many of these goldens have special medical needs and will be in our care longer than normal. If you are unable to be a foster, this is a way in which you can help a specific golden. Please take a minute to click on "Read More" and you may find a golden whose story touches your heart.

Operation Buckeye History and Background For hundreds of years, homeless dogs have been a part of the Turkish environment. Estimates for the numbers of street and shelter dogs in Istanbul alone vary greatly – anywhere from 50,000-100,000. Among these dogs, approximately 500-2000 are abandoned Golden Retrievers. A concerned American living in Istanbul noticed all the Goldens running the streets and in municipal shelters and contacted Adopt A Golden of Atlanta (AGA) Read More

In 1992, a group of Golden Retriever enthusiasts who had the foresight to see the need for rehoming unwanted Golden Retrievers incorporated Golden Retrievers In Need Rescue service as a 501C3 non-profit organization. They were truly the forerunners of rescue since back in the ‘90’s, rescue was not a common practice. We are excited to share that 2017 marks GRIN’s 25th year of rescue; saving well over 3,000 homeless Goldens. Read More

Everyone at GRIN has been supportive before, during and after the adoption of our senior girl Honey. We love our GRIN family who always puts the dogs needs first and foremost!

"As we quickly approach the anniversary of Gus' adoption, our family wanted to send a BIG thank you your way. We feel so lucky to have found such a wonderfully supportive and dedicated group of people at GRIN."

Fostering has been a wonderful experience for me, 12 years and 56 dogs later! I like being a step in the process of moving dogs into permanent, loving homes.
