Through our Rescue Trust, the North West Golden Retriever Club provides a dedicated service for the rescue and re-homing of goldens, so if for any reason your circumstances mean you need to re-home your golden retriever, we will do our very best to find it a good home.

We have rescued over 100 golden retrievers in the last few years and we are pleased to say that not one of them has had to be kennelled. They are collected and re-homed on the same day, going directly from home to home, as our aim is to be sure there is as little stress as possible. Every golden is carefully matched to their new owners, taking great care to find them a loving home where they will be cherished and have companionship for most of the time.


Finding the right home for a rescued golden is our main concern and we take time through homechecks to be sure that new owners can provide the love and care needed for the rest of their lives. Our dedicated care for the breed means we are always looking for good homes for golden retrievers, especially older ones, which for various reasons need re-homing.

Our dedication and care for the general wellbeing of golden retrievers continues after they have been re-homed. Our rescue trust assists the new owners, especially for older goldens, with contributions towards any vetenary medical costs that may occur in the future.

If you are looking for a golden retriever, or if circumstances now mean that you need to find a new home for your golden, we are here to offer help. Also if you know someone who could help us in providing a good home for one, please get in touch.

We are pleased that as of 29th February 2009 we gained Charitable status for Rescue to become: The Rescue Trust of North West Golden Retriever Club. We hope this will help us raise much needed funds to support our work. Our registered number is 1122991.

NWGRC Rescue - Fund Raising

We have a tent and stall for the Rescue Trust and spend most of the summer attending the various country shows raising funds. Our stall display at Longridge (pictured here) and the monthly market in Grimsargh are amongst those that help us to yield hundreds for Rescue.

Our stall display includes a variety of household goods and gifts and in addition to much needed funds, it helps us to make several useful contacts for re-homing.

A stall display at the shows could be an ideal outlet for your craft work, so please get in touch.
