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!
