Who We Are

Gold Ribbon Rescue, Inc. (GRR) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization founded in 1998 to meet the following three primary objectives.

  • Provide a network for sheltering, rehabilitation and placing Golden Retrievers in permanent homes in Central Texas.

  • Provide public education about responsible dog ownership and, in particular, about the Golden Retriever breed.

  • provides a mechanism for Golden Retriever fanciers to meet and discuss all things related to Golden Retrievers.

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