SPOTLIGHT ON:  
HAPPY NEW YEAR


 
The opening of our Rescue Center in Menifee is providing us with even more possibilities to expand and help more animals.

The completion of our improvement projects at the center will open our doors even wider for offering hope for animals in need.

The successful placements through our adoption program have provided us with many happy and tender heartfelt moments throughout 2014 and years past.

We are thankful for everyone who has opened their hearts and homes to the animals in our care. We love hearing from you and treasure all of the stories and pictures you send.

Our mobile spay and neuter clinic is springing into the New Year with our ever strong commitment to make a difference in the overpopulation challenges throughout our local communities.

This is our PROMISE to the animals.

This is why we tirelessly stay in the fight to promote awareness that all animals deserve to be treasured and secure in loving, caring and lasting homes.

You are at the center core of our efforts. You are what makes it possible for RFSC to work for the animals.

We thank all of you for everything you have contributed and will continue to do to help us move forward in 2015.

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.

Wishing all of you a very safe and HAPPY NEW YEAR!
   

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 this holiday season.

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.

 

RFSC thanks you in advance if you are able to help us with funding. Improving our facility will enable us to expand our rescue and adoption efforts.

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!
