Pets Give Us Joy, Comfort & Meaning...
We Lovingly Help Them When There's a Need.

Welcome to Retrievers & Friends of Southern California, Inc. (RFSC) 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 home, today!

Thank you

We would like to take a moment at Easter time to thank the many supporters that make our efforts possible. As RFSC continues to help animals in need, we are thankful for each and every one of you. Every time we are able to provide an animal with a better life, we know that it is because of all of you and your selfless dedication to our cause. You are truly appreciated.

This year we would like to make special mention of a dear friend and supporter, Alan Blackmore. Over the years, Alan adopted 2 of the 3 beautiful dogs in the pictured above. He also adopted one of our rescue horses, Summer.

Alan's loving spirit, his genuine friendship and ongoing generous support touches the hearts of all of us at RFSC. You are what we like to call "An Angel for the Animals." Thank you, Alan, for all that you do.

SPOTLIGHT ON:   RFSC's Mobile Vet Clinic

We wanted to share some pictures of a recent Spay/Neuter clinic that we hosted in Riverside county.

The animals were provided the much needed surgeries at no cost in order to prevent future litters.  RFSC volunteers know that we cannot adopt our way out of the over population problem.  We are trying to do all that we can in order to be part of the solution. 

We pray for a day when all animals have a loving home.  Until then, we would be grateful for donations to support this much needed program. 

Please visit our spay/neuter page for details and to take a look at our beautiful clinic on wheels!     Learn more...

Thank you to Mike Clary Photography for taking the pictures

SPOTLIGHT ON:   Vineyard Veterinary

We are often asked what the rescue "needs".  We always need bleach and  laundry detergent.  We are always doing laundry.  Part of the challenge is finding time to pick up donations when someone offers.

Our wonderful friends at Vineyard Veterinary have offered to help out. 

If anyone wants to donate items, they can be dropped off at Vineyard Veterinary

Vineyard Veterinary is located at:

30680 Rancho California Road
Suite M-5
Temecula, CA


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!
