bobby16013 1We currently have 6 goldens who have no sponsors and the list continues to grow.  We hope you will read each of their stories and help us care for them with your generous sponsorship.

This sweet senior boy is Bobby.  His owner was unable to keep him due to a medical issue and he has now come to GRIN to find his new forever home.  He is around 9 years old, extremely loveable and loves to be around people and other dogs.  He will make a wonderful pet to the home who is looking for more "relaxed" boy.  
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:   Andy, Bobbie, Charlie, Fozzie, Sim,   and Urban  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.

GRIN PicnicWe hope that you have saved the date for the Annual GRIN Reunion Picnic on Saturday, September 10th, from noon until 3:00 pm.   We will gather at the large shelter house in Memorial Park in Wadsworth - rain or shine, but we hope for shine this year! GRIN members and their dogs (GRIN or otherwise, as long as they are friendly) are invited. We will furnish hot dogs, hamburgers, buns, condiments, beverages, and table service. Please bring a dish to share. We'll have raffle items, door prizes and take home bags for the canine crowd. All pets must remain leashed according to local laws and are not permitted in the pond.

The 25th Anniversary calendars will be available and are $10. The new GRIN logo short sleeve T-shirts will be available along with the embroidered long sleeve T's, hoodies and denim shirts in black or blue in men's and women's sizes.

"Open Adoptions” to benefit our Buckeye Bound Turkey Dog Fund project will be available at the picnic consisting of the large plush Golden and garden Goldens for a $100 adoption fee and the small Golden puppies are available for a $50 adoption fee. The GRIN Gear table and Adoption table will be open from 12:00 - 2:00 p.m. The micro-chipping clinic will be open from 1:00 to 2:30 pm for those interested.

How to get there: Take State Route 94 to the center of Wadsworth. Turn west on College St., then left on Grandview. Memorial Park entrance is on the right just past the stadium. 94 is being widened at 76, so there may be delays. The road has been open for traffic.

Goldens, please bring your families for a fun afternoon with your furry friends. Hope to see you there!

Our golden "rufferee" is ready and willing to help "ruf" any event!  This is just one of the fun costumes that was seen last year at the GRIN Howl-o-Ween event.  Registration will open soon so we hope that you will put this one on your calendar and start planning your costume.  It's a fun activity that you can share with your pet (non-goldens welcome too!) and make some new friends in GRIN.  We look forward to seeing you there!

If you have a fun photo of your golden that you would like to share, please send it to print and note that it is a Fun Photo!
