Golden Retriever Rescue of the Rockies (GRRR), with a new home base at Phoebe’s Place in Arvada, CO, is a mostly volunteer non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that helps place unwanted, abandoned or surrendered Golden Retrievers into loving forever homes.


GRRR was founded in 1996 by Laura Terroux and has experienced continued organizational growth while working toward the goal of caring for our breed. GRRR re-homes approximately 300 Golden Retrievers annually.

GRRR can assist you if you currently own a Golden Retriever that you, for any reason, are unable to keep. After evaluation, surrendered Goldens will be taken in by GRRR and provided with the appropriate veterinary care consisting of vaccination updates, spaying or neutering and a general health exam. They are then placed into a loving foster home while our volunteers work to match them with new families. Please click here to surrender a Golden.
