SPOTLIGHT ON:  
One of a Kind Bird Houses


One of our local volunteers, Jolinda makes one of a kind bird houses and the proceeds of the sales go to benefit the pets at Retrievers and Friends.

Jolinda shares the following:

The birdhouses are made of 100% recycled wood and trinkets. We find old door knobs, hinges and anything fun we can use to make these one of a kind birdhouses. Most have license plates for tops which can come off for cleaning each year.

The Wrens at my house come back each year to make their nests in mine. They are so much fun to watch and listen to. When you purchase a birdhouse the proceeds go to Retrievers and Friends to assist in the care of the rescued animals until a forever home is found. Please consider adopting a forever friend and/or a birdhouse. If you would like to order a birdhouse, please contact Jolinda at 760 420 0805


Jolinda had made 4 birdhouses for Nancy. Nancy shares the following:

After my mother passed away, we had several trinkets (glass door knobs, old keys different pieces of item from her home).  I had. Jolinda make the houses for me, my two daughters and granddaughter in law. Since my dad was born in Kentucky she found a Kentucky license plate for mine, the others were made with California license plates as the roof. it was a very special Christmas gift for me and my family. We all have them displayed in our home.
 



SPOTLIGHT ON:   Update on Gordy

We wanted to share a picture of Gordy. He was recently adopted and we loved this picture.





SPOTLIGHT ON:   Update on Tori

Today was a very special day for Tori.  She now has a home of her own.

Tori came to us with many other small dogs from a breeder in Los Angeles.  Tori was discarded when she could no longer produce puppies.

Tori had lived her entire life in a cage.  She came to RFSC in need of vet care and most of all, love. 

Today, we met with the most wonderful family who wanted to provide a home for Tori.  They welcomed her with open arms.  When we visited the family, we could see what great care they give to their 2 little dogs.  These dogs are part of their family

Today Tori is loved, cared for and has a home to call her own. 

This is what makes it all worthwhile for RFSC. Thanks to this loving family, Tori is no longer a kennel dog, but now a member of a loving family.

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!
