Welcome to Retrievers & Friends of Southern California, Inc.
We are an all-volunteer, non-profit organization
devoted to finding homes for Golden Retrievers & Labrador
Retrievers, as well as other breeds of dogs as space allows.
Can you provide a foster home or forever home to a pet in need?
Heed the call to make a difference by opening your heart and your
Hopes for 2016
RFSC is excited about the many adoptions this past year.
When a pet in our care moves on to a loving and lifetime home we are energized to keep doing more.
This is what RFSC is here for.
Our hope for this coming year is to continue to expand our efforts in all areas so that we can help many more animals in need find loving homes.
Your support is what helps us to get it done. Donations are what makes our work possible, but equally important are our hands-on volunteers.
We need people who are able to help with the following:
||- Home visits for adoption approvals.
- Hands on help at the Rescue Center with various chores.
- Help with Fundraisers
This year's plan for improvements include modifying our play yard (which includes installing artificial dog friendly turf) and adding a 2nd play yard.
Yes, RFSC has 'High Hopes' for this new year.
We're dedicated to making this our best year ever and with your participation we know we will reach that goal and perhaps even beyond.
Please visit our
page (Retrievers and Friends of Southern California) and share with others the many animals available for adoption and their touching stories.
Wishing all of you the very best in 2016.

RFSC Rescue Center
We continue to make improvements at our Rescue Center.
We sincerely appreciate all of the donations that we have
received to date.
Some of our current projects are:
Improving existing buildings so that dogs can be housed more comfortably and safely indoors.
Building additional play yards and improving the existing ones so that every dog will have quality time outdoors daily.
Building shelters in the play yards that will offer protection from the weather.
Sturdy dog kennels for indoor and outdoor runs.
RFSC is truly in need of funds to help get the much needed work
finished at our new facility. We are hoping there will be
some angels to help us improve our new facility.

Additionally, donated funds would help with the following:
1. Creating a larger space for our indoor cattery.
2. A remodel of our entire grooming room including bathtubs, tables etc.
3. Purchasing a large capacity commercial washer and dryer. (Hanging blankets, bedding, towels etc. out to dry is a costly and inefficient use of time.)
4. Purchasing commercial quality indoor and outdoor paint.
5. Purchasing sealant for existing floors.
6. Improving lighting throughout the facility.
