pecan16038 1Urgent request!  We are taking in more and more goldens each day and again have 10 goldens without sponsors.  Please add one of them to your Holiday list and consider a sponsorship for them.  With your help, we can continue to care for them and bring in those who desparately need our help.

This beautiful girl is one of our recent strays who have come to GRIN to find a new loving forever home.  She is a very small golden and appears to be about 1-2 years old.  She is full of energy and such a sweet golden.  She will definately need a home with a fence and lots of exercise but she will be a wonderful new addition to her new home. 

You can read about this golden and all of our goldens who are waiting on their forever homes on our Available Goldens pages.  If you can't adopt or foster a golden with G.R.I.N., but would like to help one (or more) of our rescued goldens, you can help us by becoming a sponsor of one or more of these rescued golden beauties!  As you look through our pages of "Available Goldens", you will see that many are sponsored but these goldens still have NO ONE to sponsor them and we need your help:    Amber,  Goldie, Lacey, Monte, Nugget, Pecan, Regan, Stella, Sunny and Sandy   We are asking for your help!  Our goal is to have all of our goldens sponsored with one or more sponsors.  A "Golden Sponsorship" is easy and a great way to help some very deserving goldens.  Here's how to become a sponsor.

Rusty2To remind you of Rusty’s background, he began displaying symptoms of lethargy and weight loss, and was diagnosed with a potential liver shunt based on blood work. His owners were unable to afford the testing, surgery and care required, therefore the family made the painful decision to relinquish him to GRIN so he could live a normal life. A CT scan was required to confirm the diagnosis and determine the type of shunt; he was seen again, had the scan, and it confirmed the diagnosis.

Operation BuckeyeGolden Retrievers In Need loves their goldens and we have learned that love has no borders. Due to the hard work of the Buckeye Bound Committee and your continued support and generosity, GRIN welcomed nine goldens from Turkey into their care on September 30, 2016.  Seven of the Turkey dogs have already been placed in a loving home.

Following their vet check and a few days in foster care, they were ready for some picture taking.  Guaranteed to make you smile!

Saving one animal may not change the world…but surely, for that one animal…the world will be changed forever.
