Walk For A DogDon’t just take your dog for a walk… Take your Walk for a Dog! Go to WoofTrax.com, download the app, and support your local animal shelter every time you walk your dog. WoofTrax, through the Walk for a Dog mobile app, creates fundraising opportunities for shelters and rescues while encouraging dogs and their humans to exercise together regularly.

Support your local animal organization simply by walking your dog! Use the app each time you grab for the leash. It’s healthy for you, your dog, and your favorite shelter or rescue.

Click “Get the App” at the top of the page, install the free Android or iPhone app, and start taking your Walk for a Dog every day. You can change the shelter or rescue you are walking for in the setup tab of the app for iPhone users, or in the settings menu for Android users. Be sure to encourage your selected animal organization to get the word out! The more people walking for a shelter or rescue, the more we can donate.

violet14012Sweet 8-year-old Violet came to us from a shelter; she had been homeless and on the road alone. Violet was almost completely blind from severe, end stage glaucoma, with high pressure that caused migraine-like head and eye pain. Our vet partner prescribed eye drops specifically formulated to reduce pressure, but they did not ease Violet's pain; in fact after one week her eye pressure had increased.

Our vet partner concluded that it was best to surgically remove both of Violet’s eyes. She’s had the procedure and is recovering nicely in her foster home. Once she fully recoups, it is anticipated that she will return to the spunky, fun-loving Golden that many of our volunteers saw glimpses of initially. At times, she would shake her entire body in delight, enjoyed pats, treats, and returned affection with kisses. Please don’t overlook this sweetheart simply because she is impaired, she has plenty of life and love to give her new adopter.

chopper14013 1Chopper has come to us as a stray golden who was not claimed while in a shelter.  We estimate him to be about 8 - 9 years old.  He is a wonderful golden who is looking for his new forever 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:     Lucy, Tyco and Violet  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.

paw blackJessie is First Recipient of the Bryn Fund

***Please note that the photos may disturb some individuals***

You may remember the recent and sad story of Bryn, a special but very sick Golden that was in our care for one short week. So many generous people responded to her story and donated to her care that after she crossed the Rainbow Bridge we vowed to set up a fund in her name, honoring and remembering her courageous battle. Its mission is simple: “The Bryn Fund will help the next precious Golden who has not had a good life find new health and a warm home to be loved in and cared for.  Bryn will be long remembered.”

Let it Snow, Let it Snow. . .

It might be a little early this year to get snow, but Angelina is having fun from an earlier snow in 2008.   She is on deer patrol in her backyard and loving every minute of it.  This photo was sent in by her parents, Maria and Larry Zoul. 

 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!
