successful placements through our adoption program have
provided us with many happy and tender heartfelt moments
throughout 2014 and years past.
We are thankful
for everyone who has opened their hearts and homes to
the animals in our care. We love hearing from you and
treasure all of the stories and pictures you send.
This is our PROMISE to the animals.
This is why we tirelessly stay in the fight to promote awareness that all animals deserve to be treasured and secure in loving, caring and lasting homes.
You are at the center core of our efforts. You are what makes it possible for RFSC to work for the animals.
We thank all of you for everything you have contributed and will continue to do to help us move forward in 2015.
It's because of your donations and support that we at Retrievers and Friends of Southern California are blessed with the OPPORTUNITY to continue to make a difference.

Our most important 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.
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.

Retrievers & Friends of Southern California, Inc.,
was formed to rescue and re-home Golden Retrievers and Labrador
Retrievers, providing an alternative to the animal shelter for
owners who can no longer keep their dogs.
We are a full-service rescue, with dogs
coming to us from all over the Southern California area for foster
care services. RFSC not only provides care for dogs while they are
waiting for adoption, but we provide follow-up assistance for the
life of the dog. If for any reason a family can not keep a dog, the
dog is brought back to the organization for placement.
We have volunteers that perform home visits
before each adoption. Our geographic adoption area is Riverside,
San Diego, Orange and certain areas of San Bernardino counties. We
cover areas of San Bernardino county that are 1 hour or less driving
distance from Temecula.
In addition to Golden Retrievers and Labrador
Retrievers, RFSC also accepts mixed breeds and other small
purebred dogs as space allows. We accept Goldens and Labs of all
ages, including seniors and those with special needs. All dogs are
spayed and neutered and updated on vaccinations if not already done
by the owner. Dogs with special medical needs are further evaluated
by our veterinarian for treatment.
Your donations are always appreciated and
help us to continue to care for these special dogs. Because we are
an all-volunteer group, 100% of all adoption fees and donations are
used for the care of the dogs in our program. Your tax-deductible
donations are appreciated!
