Each year Golden Retrievers and their families are invited spend the weekend at a sleep away camp in Pennsylvania. This event takes place during Labor Day weekend. LIGRR always has a great time. If you are interested in attending the information is available on their website goldstockcamp.com. If you are an LIGRR family please let us know that you are coming so we can look for you.

Available Dogs

This page shows a number of dogs which are currently available for adoption.

If you are interested in adopting a dog, please be aware of the following:

The adoption process consists of the application, the phone interview, and a home visit. We have very limited resources for home visits that are out of state or too far upstate. We do make an effort to do them but often the wait is quite long and there are times when we are unable to do them. Please apply to your local rescue as they might be able to assist you better.

As a matter of policy to protect the privacy of people involved in all phases of adoption, LIGRR volunteers do not give out personal phone numbers or email addresses.  If you are contacted by someone from a personal email or phone, please call LIGRR at 516-578-3803 or email us at ligrr@yahoo.com to verify they are actually working on our behalf.
