Daisy's Place Retriever Rescue is dedicated to saving and finding loving homes for Retrievers (and Retriever mixes) six years and older. Occassionally we do take dogs into rescue that are under six years old - some of them come to us from shelters where their correct age was misjudged and sometimes we just can't help but save the younger ones from certain death - we affectionately call these younger honorary Daisy Dogs, 'rosebuds'.

We have some exciting events in the works for March and will update you soon!
Adoptable Daisy Dogs!!
Hello to our Daisy Family! We've had a busy beginning to 2011 and we wanted to update everyone on some of our February events as well as share some exciting news. Last year we saved 44 abandoned and homeless Retrievers (and Retriever mixes) - most of these were Daisy Dogs - 6 years and older, and a few were "Rosebuds" (honorary Daisy Dogs under 6 years old)! We couldn't have done this without the help and support of our wonderful volunteers and fosters - thank you all for being a valuable link in our Daisy Chain!
We began the new year with four adoptions - Gracie, Star, Charlie and Misty all found their forever homes! And, Gracie had her ACL surgery and is doing great! Daisy(4), our beautiful little Golden/Setter girl just completed her heartworm treatment and her forever mom is coming from Virginia to take her home next month!
Our newest Daisy Dogs Hutton, 11 year old black Lab (UPDATE: Hutton has been adopted!) and Tori, 9 year old yellow Lab, recently arrived in Charleston from North Carolina. Soon Nissan, 8 year old chocolate Lab and Annie, 8 year old black Lab will be joining our Daisy family. And Eddie, 8 year old yellow lab mix from Charleston Animal Society, just went to his new foster home last week and is thriving with all the love and attention!
We hope you'll join us at some of our upcoming events
We can't say it enough - THANK YOU ALL - because of your support and enthusiasm we're able to continue our mission of saving and finding loving homes for these sweet older souls we call Daisy Dogs!
Your two and four legged friends at Daisy's Place
We are happy to announce that the dogs below (among others) have been adopted and are settling into their furever homes!
Adopting, Fostering and Volunteering
We are an all volunteer non-profit organization and all of our dogs are in private foster homes. If you're interested in adopting one of our lovable Daisy Dogs - or Rosebuds - please visit our website and fill out an adoption application on our Be A Link in the Daisy Chain page.
Be a link in the Daisy chain by volunteering or fostering for Daisy's Place Retriever Rescue.
Fostering is crucial to our lifesaving efforts and generally lasts from a few weeks to a few months. As a foster there is no obligation or set time you have to foster the dog. We offer medical and training advice, take care of vetting, provide an experienced support network and actively work to place our retrievers into carefully screened permanent homes. We're always looking for loving foster homes - if you have room in your heart and home and would like to be a foster, please email us!
If you can't foster right now but would still like to help our retrievers, we have many different volunteer opportunities. Volunteers are always needed at the events we have through out the year. Sometimes we just need people to talk to visitors at the events about who we are and what we do and sometimes volunteers will pick up dogs from fosters who are unable to attend so that the dog can still get exposure. Often times we need transport help to get a dog from North Carolina or other areas of South Carolina to Daisy's Place. There is an endless amount of opportunities for volunteers at Daisy's Place Retriever Rescue. Chances are if you have a special skill, we can use it!!
