Almost Heaven Golden Retriever Rescue & Sanctuary Logo

AHGRRS has been saving lives since 2002 and plans to continue accepting as many orphan dogs as space and finances allow. Your donations help keep our doors open to those who need us most. We have Adoptable Dogs in need of homes and many permanent residents who will never know the joy of living in a family environment because they are so damaged, old, or sick that they are best suited to living out their lives with us - here at the Sanctuary. Please consider giving a homeless dog a home.

  • If you cannot adopt at this time, but would like to help, please consider one or more of the following:
    • Sponsoring one of our residents. No donation is too small - all are deeply appreciated. Use the PayPal button or mail to AHGGRS at P.O. Box 648, Capon Bridge, WV 26711
    • Supporting one of the Fundraisers listed below


    * * * URGENT: AHGRR Needs Your Help  * * *


We have been busy. Dogs coming and going - requests for intakes are at a staggering level now. We are doing what we can to help as many as we can and will continue to do so...but we really need your help.

The hard winter damaged equipment and buildings: the main electric line to one of our dog barracks had to be replaced due to age and weather damage, the buildings all need painting, with most requiring some repairs made prior to painting, dog doors are in need of replacement, and the list goes on.

Our now retired vehicle required extensive repairs to keep it going and pass inspection until replacements were found.

Our veterinary expenses are through the roof! Flea season - and the preventatives needed to keep all the rescues pest free has been another burden. So many of our intakes have needed long term or very expensive medical care - Panzer's medical care alone has been at least $400/month. We are happy to report that he is much, much improved - and may be leaving for his new home (after a surgery to remove an ugly growth from his ear) as soon as mid July.

No donation is too small. Any and all donations will help make an impact and are greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance for your contribution...Your generosity means the world to the dogs in our care!!!!!!
