We are now accepting new adoption applications! Before you complete the application form, please review the Adoption Process article on the Adoption main page so you understand how our application/approval/adoption process works. Also, check to be sure you are in our service area in Southeastern Virginia.
Please be aware that we still require home evaluation visits. Because of the pandemic, we have adopted standard safety protocols for in-person visits, including screening questions, social distancing, mask wearing, and doing as much as possible outside. Your safety and well-being, as well as that of our volunteers, is very important to us!
While we feel strongly that in-person home evaluation visits give us the best picture about a family’s suitability for a dog, we are also willing to consider virtual home visits. Please note in the comments on the application form if you are willing to have an in-person home evaluation visit or if you would prefer a virtual visit.
Thank you for your continued support of SEVA GRREAT!

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.
Thinking about adopting a golden retriever? Well, how about considering a senior. Think about your lifestyle: Do you work all day? Perhaps you might not have the energy to keep up with a young dog. Or maybe you don't want to go through the "puppy stage" but really want a companion
