Meet Kelly

I have an Adoption Pending and will be going home soon. But I hope you will consider one of our other wonderful dogs in need. Thank you!

Sweet Kelly was found running loose in a Louisiana Parish. As stunning and loving as she is we were amazed that no one came to claim her at the shelter. Oh, if only these dogs could tell us their stories...

Kelly is a medium-sized girl weighing about 47 lbs. She is estimated to be about 1-2 years-old and may be a Golden mix. Whatever it is that went into her DNA, it surely produced one beautiful dog! She came to our rescue as a shy dog, but has now warmed up as she receives attention and affection. Her inner happiness has started to emerged and we are thrilled to see her wanting to frolic and play! Presently, her activity is restricted as she completes her heartworm treatment. But her cute personality is still showing through. She has become a big fan of belly rubs and is becoming more comfortable each day.

Kelly would do well with another dog in her new home or she can be the apple of her human's eye in a single pet home. She walks pretty well on a leash and rode nicely in the car. She is very sweet and is so gentle when taking treats from your hand. In the care of a loving adopter, she will continue to blossom into a happy little bundle of fun.

Kelly has been brought up-to-date on vaccinations, is spayed, micro-chipped, and is under treatment for heartworm. For the first year of adoption, she must be given the brand name Heartguard for her heartworm preventative. After that, a generic may be considered. Kelly is scheduled to come north from AL, to be directly adopted into her new forever home, mid February.

Rescued dogs come with a range of needs - from behavioral to emotional to medical. When approved applicants adopt such dogs, they agree to continue the rehabilitation we have begun.

Thank you!

Before being approved to adopt, all potential adopters will be required to complete our online application and participate in our pre-adoption review process. The process includes the completion of an online application, a reference from the applicants' vet, a phone interview, and a visit to the applicants' home. The application process helps us determine what type of Golden would be best suited for the applicants' life style. In some cases, the specific dog you are interested in may have found a home before this process is complete or further assessment may indicate that this dog is not the right match for your family. We are frequently getting new Goldens in need of a home, so we encourage you to apply and complete the application process so that when the right dog comes along you will be ready.

The information provided on each dog is based on the observations of our vets, volunteers, fosters, and when available, trainers. While we do our best to report any and all issues, SGRR does not make any guarantees as to the health or temperament of any dog. Dogs evolve differently in different environments and we cannot predict with any certainty how the dog you adopt will behave and adapt in your home.

SGRR ADOPTION FEES - Effective May 1, 2020 (subject to change)

$750 Puppy - up to 6 months
$650 Young 6 months - 6 years
$550 Senior 7 - 9 years
$450 Senior 10 years and older

$550 Young Special Needs

A contract is signed on the day of adoption. Under the terms of the contract, all adopters are required to bring their SGRR dog to a vet within 7 business days. All dogs receive basic veterinary care prior to adoption. However, if an adopter's vet identifies an illness that an adopter is not willing to treat, then the dog may be returned and a full refund would be provided.

Most of our dogs are fostered in private homes. We do not have a facility to visit. We are committed to our dogs before, during, and after adoption! To this end, the rescue retains an interest in each dog and our dogs can never be surrendered, re-homed, or sold. Should an adopter no longer be able to keep their SGRR dog, SGRR must be notified so that we can take the dog back into rescue and place it into another home. We reserve the right to remove a dog at any time should we find the adopter is no longer providing proper care. Adopters agree to follow up visits as needed.

Please be a ray of light for this Sunshine dog and make a tax deductible donation toward medical care and other expenses. Every cent of your generosity goes directly toward the care of a Sunshine dog.
