About the Golden Gate Labrador Retriever Club (GGLRC)
The Golden Gate Labrador Retriever Club (GGLRC) is located in the San Francisco Bay Area in California and has over 65 members. The Club publishes a Quarterly newsletter, Retriever Reflections (editor is Lorrie Bellows, firstname.lastname@example.org), and sponsors events year-round. These activities emphasize the versatility of the breed and encourage Labrador owners to maintain an interest in their dogs.
GGLRC supports Labrador Rescue and Placement Services program. In 1997, GGLRC established Golden Gate Labrador Retriever Rescue (GGLRR) as a separate non-profit, tax exempt organization. GGLRR provides assistance in placing Labradors directly from the current owner to a new owner without placing the dog in a shelter. Labrador Rescue does not eliminate shelters but attempts to keep as many Labradors in a home environment as possible. GGLRR is run completely by volunteers and covers the Greater San Francisco Bay Area. See our Labrador Rescue page for more information.
The Central California Labrador Retriever Rescue (CCLRR) was established in 1998 as a separate organization from GGLRR to better serve the California Central Valley.
In addition to the above GGLRC activities, the GGLRC publishes a booklet called The Labrador Retriever in Northern California and has an active Public Education Program (PEP). We provide information tables at several major shows and other dog-related events in Northern California during the year to help educate members of the public about our wonderful breed.

The GGLRC is a successful, hard-working club placing special emphasis on enjoying the Labrador Retriever to its fullest. The ability of our members to consistently earn obedience, agility, show and field titles is the "proof in the pudding."
