Welcome to DVGRR



We are dedicated to finding new homes for Golden Retrievers and dogs with “hearts of gold” – those dogs with the temperament, intelligence and loving nature similar to that found in the Golden Retriever. As a rescue, DVGRR cannot verify the genetic purity of any DVGRR dog.

Since 1993, Delaware Valley Golden Retriever Rescue has successfully placed over 3,500 DVGRR dogs into new homes through eastern Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey and other surrounding areas. We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, relying on donations, our supporters, fundraising, and the proceeds of our events and retail store, Pap’s Place for funding.

Sponsoring a DVGRR dog gives their healing hope... and their forever-home dreams a chance to come true.


Through our donation service, you can sponsor one of the dogs currently in residence.
You will be listed on the dog's webpage as his or her sponsor.

When you support DVGRR at either the "Golden Guardian" and "Golden Circle" levels, your support includes sponsorship of one DVGRR dog.
