See you Sunday, March 29th, at the 17th annual GoldenFest, a fun-filled afternoon for you and your Golden. Enjoy contests, vendor booths, a silent auction and refreshments while your Goldens play at Kanine Social, Jacksonville's only private indoor/outdoor dog park and craft beer/coffee bar.

G.R.E.A.T. Rescue of NE Florida

G.R.E.A.T. (Golden Retriever Emergency Assistance Team) was founded in Northeast Florida in Dec. 2000, and since then over 1000 Goldens have been rescued. Based in the Jacksonville-St. Augustine area, G.R.E.A.T. was founded in 2000 for the purpose of matching wonderful Golden Retrievers with loving, responsible families. Our mission statement is “Giving Goldens a GREAT Second Chance”. Our Goldens come from private homes, area shelters and other rescues. All are heart worm negative, current on all vaccinations, wormed, spayed/neutered and have been examined by rescue vets.
