Save A Golden Abroad

​About Us

The idea of rescuing Golden Retrievers from overseas first came to light in late 2014 when we learned of a young golden, Sky, who was at risk in a South Korean city shelter.

Since that date an additional 60 goldens from S. Korea, 3 from China as well as 3 from Iran have been safely rehomed in SW Florida under the umbrella of Golden Retriever Rescue of SW FL (GRRSWF). 

While GRRSWF continues its rescue work locally in SW Florida, Save A Golden Abroad (SAGA) was established to continue the mission of saving abused, abandoned and neglected Golden Retrievers from beyond our shores and giving each a second chance at a happy life.

Welcome to SAGA and thank you for your support of our rescue work. Please feel free to contact us via email should you have any comments or questions.
