Announcing the 2019

China Goldens

SEVA GRREAT believes that every Golden deserves a chance, no matter their place of birth. To date we have rescued over 60 homeless Goldens from Turkey. Because those efforts have been so rewarding, we are expanding our efforts to help Goldens in China as well. Without our help, these dogs would die. Our first Golden arrivals from China will be coming to Virginia shortly. These dogs embody everything that is special about our breed.


Many of you may be wondering “Why China”? While every country and culture has different beliefs and practices, we learned a bit of what life is like for Golden Retrievers in China and couldn’t turn our backs. The meat market is a very real threat to all dogs within the country, but we have learned that Goldens are a preferred breed due to size and temperament. There are also height restrictions throughout China, making legal ownership of a Golden Retriever difficult. A Beijing law states that a dog taller than 35 centimeters (1.1 foot) is considered illegal and that the dog can be locked up and put down if intercepted by police. Golden Retriever owners have to walk their dogs at unpopular hours for fear of confiscation.

With the support of many US Golden Retriever rescues, there will be about 100 goldens saved just in the month of March alone.

Please donate to help us save the next ones in need.
