In Our Care

These dogs are currently in one of our loving foster homes until ready for adoption. Our dogs come to SEVA GRREAT from owners who can no longer care for them, local shelters, or even from Turkey or China thanks to our international rescue partners. Their time in foster care can vary from weeks to months, depending on the dogs’ medical needs. Some need additional time to work through other behavioral issues. When they are available for adoption, those families on our approved waiting list will be notified. We work tirelessly to find the perfect forever home for each golden in our care.

Bentli is an almost 9 year girl who doesn't know she is a "senior". Foster mom calls her a "border collie in a golden retriever body" because she loves to run and play fetch. Bentli is currently available for adoption and needs to be the only dog in the family.

Buck is a sweet 7-10 year old golden mix from a rural VA shelter. He was treated for both Lyme and Ehrlichia, and is recovering well from surgery for a torn CCL. He still needs to be neutered, and is being treated with medication and a prescription diet for kidney disease. Watch our Facebook page for updates on this sweet boy.

Chance is a sweet 5 year old boy with a seizure disorder. He was recently started on medication and we are monitoring closely to be sure his seizures are well-controlled. We hope he will be ready to find his forever family later this spring.

Rescued from a NC shelter in February 2019. She was heartworm positive and had a prolonged recovery from her treatment. She remains in foster care due to multiple medical issues, and may become one of our forever fosters.

Rescued from a hoarding situation in June 2020. She was completely unsocialized and is still quite fearful. We are slowly gaining her trust and building her confidence, but anticipate it will still be months before she is ready for adoption.

Hero is just a year old and was born with a significant forelimb deformity. He is new to the rescue and just arrived in February 2021, so we are learning more about him, He will soon have an orthopedic consult at NC State and we will share his progress on our Facebook page.

These girls are retired breeder dogs rescued in November 2020. They will need to be spayed, but this can't be done until after they complete heartworm treatment which will start in March. Ladybug is very fearful but is improving daily. We hope they will be ready for adoption later this summer.

Mindy is a sweet 2-year-old golden mix who arrived from Turkey on February 7th. Mindy settled into her foster home very well and has no known health issues. She is currently available for adoption.

Poppy was also rescued from the same hoarding situation and was completely unsocialized. She remains very fearful, especially when it comes to using a collar/leash or harness. She is slowly gaining confidence thanks to the help of trainers and her patient foster.

Reuben came from the SPCA as a stray, so his background is unknown. While very sweet and friendly, he does have some anxiety and is fearful of other dogs. We are continuing to work on his socialization before he is ready to find his forever home.

Serbet arrived from Turkey in fall 2020. She was started on medication after an episode of seizure-like activity which has not recurred. Her MRI was normal. She does have some skin allergies and hip dysplasia, being managed with medication. She is 4 years old and very sweet, and is currently available for adoption.

Stella is 8 years old and Moose is almost 6, and they are the cutest bonded pair. They have quickly acclimated to their foster home. They are currently available for adoption and need to be adopted together.

Sweet Susie is 2 years old and was surrendered due to urinary incontinence. She has a malfunctioning bladder sphincter and was treated at NC State with a collagen injection which has helped greatly. She will need a special family to continue her care as additional injections may be needed throughout her life.

Wyatt is 4 years old, rescued from a local shelter. He still has some anxiety/insecurities and tends to become stressed in new situations. His foster has been working with a trainer to build his confidence, and we hope he will be ready for adoption soon.
