Pets Give Us Joy, Comfort & Meaning...
We Lovingly Help Them When There's a Need.


Welcome to Retrievers & Friends of Southern California, Inc. (RFSC) We are an all-volunteer, non-profit organization devoted to finding homes for Golden Retrievers & Labrador Retrievers, as well as other breeds of dogs as space allows.

Can you provide a foster home or forever home to a pet in need? Heed the call to make a difference by opening your heart and your home, today!


   


SPOTLIGHT ON:  
 Happy Birthday Jolie

  Happy Birthday to Jolie, one of the luckiest dogs in the world.

Thank you Rich, for adopting her and giving her a loving home.

Also, thank you Rich, for everything that you do to support RFSC.

Thanks to you, we have been able to do many improvements to our rescue center.

The dogs are enjoying the deck under the shade cover with the cooling misters.

The cats have a window they can look out and also get cool air from the other room.


 
 

We have built a new room for the kittens
and puppies to play, thanks to you.

We also will be able to start on the big play yard with a shade cover soon, all thanks to your generous donation.

We are grateful to you for all that you have done to help RFSC.





SPOTLIGHT ON:   Update on RFSC Rescue Center  - New shade cover and deck


 
  The dogs at our rescue center were already enjoying the shade, as the deck under our beautiful new shade cover was being completed.


In the photos below, you can see Jake, one of our volunteers as he puts misters on the new shade cover.

In the other photo, the dogs are enjoying time in the new play yard, thanks to the new shade cover and deck.  They can stay out longer on a beautiful summer day.

We thank all of you for everything you have contributed and will continue to do to help us move forward with our rescue program.

It's because of your donations and support that we at Retrievers and Friends of Southern California are blessed with the OPPORTUNITY to continue to make a difference.

 

RFSC is truly in need of funds to help get the much needed work finished at our new facility.  We are hoping there will be some angels to help us improve our new facility.br>

Our most important projects are:

  • Improving existing buildings so that dogs can be housed more comfortably and safely indoors.

  • Building additional play yards and improving the existing ones so that every dog will have quality time outdoors daily.

  • Building shelters in the play yards that will offer protection from the weather.

  • Sturdy dog kennels for indoor and outdoor runs.

 

Additionally, donated funds would help with the following:

1. Creating a larger space for our indoor cattery.
2. A remodel of our entire grooming room including bathtubs, tables etc.
3. Purchasing a large capacity commercial washer and dryer. (Hanging blankets, bedding, towels etc. out to dry is a costly and inefficient use of time.)
4. Purchasing commercial quality indoor and outdoor paint.
5. Purchasing sealant for existing floors.
6. Improving lighting throughout the facility.

OUR MISSION

Retrievers & Friends of Southern California, Inc., was formed to rescue and re-home Golden Retrievers and Labrador Retrievers, providing an alternative to the animal shelter for owners who can no longer keep their dogs.

We are a full-service rescue, with dogs coming to us from all over the Southern California area for foster care services. RFSC not only provides care for dogs while they are waiting for adoption, but we provide follow-up assistance for the life of the dog.  If for any reason a family can not keep a dog, the dog is brought back to the organization for placement.

We have volunteers that perform home visits before each adoption.  Our geographic adoption area is Riverside, San Diego, Orange and certain areas of San Bernardino counties.   We cover areas of San Bernardino county that are 1 hour or less driving distance from Temecula.

In addition to Golden Retrievers and Labrador Retrievers, RFSC also accepts mixed breeds and other small purebred dogs as space allows. We accept Goldens and Labs of all ages, including seniors and those with special needs. All dogs are spayed and neutered and updated on vaccinations if not already done by the owner. Dogs with special medical needs are further evaluated by our veterinarian for treatment.

Your donations are always appreciated and help us to continue to care for these special dogs. Because we are an all-volunteer group, 100% of all adoption fees and donations are used for the care of the dogs in our program. Your tax-deductible donations are appreciated!
