Middle Tennessee Golden Retriever Rescue (MTGRR) is a volunteer-operated, non-profit organization dedicated to new beginnings for displaced Golden Retrievers. Our purpose is to facilitate the adoption of displaced and unwanted Golden Retrievers; to provide a good quality of life for homeless Goldens; to reduce the abuse and neglect of unwanted Golden Retrievers through rehabilitation and adoption, and to seek to reduce the number of unwanted Goldens. Further, we provide public education by means of brochures, a newsletter and canine education events about responsible pet ownership and the Golden Retriever breed.
MTGRR is a 501(c) 3 nonprofit organization.
