Please take a few minutes to look through our adoptable goldens and read their stories. We are still taking in dogs at an alarming rate and we have 5 goldens without sponsors, many who require extensive medical care and many waiting on their forever homes. We hope you can help by sponsoring at least one.
Meet Buddy, G.R.I.N. golden #15062 (we have three Buddy's waiting on forever homes.) He was turned in to a shelter as his owners could no longer care for him and he came to us to find his forever home. He was hit by a car at some point and has an injured front paw and spent most of his life outside on a chain. We are looking for a special home to give this beautiful senior boy to spend his senior years in. 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: Brach, Bruno, Charlie, Spring and Elaina 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.

“Buckeye Bound” is the nickname given to GRIN’s efforts to assist in the rescue of Golden Retrievers from the streets, forests and shelters of Istanbul, Turkey.
MEET SCARLETT AND GRAY
These names should ring a bell or is that a touchdown? GRIN decided on a theme to honor THE Ohio State University; thus the names Scarlett and Gray.
Scarlett is approximately 2- to 3-years-old. Scarlett is described as a sweet young girl. She was found by a pet-transporter in the streets of a village 100 km outside of İstanbul. Gray has been rescued from one of the terrible shelters of İzmir. She is very sweet and young but has already given birth, probably used by breeders. She is of course spayed.
Golden Retrievers In Need loves their Goldens and we have learned that love has no borders. These dogs from Turkey deserve a second chance to have a wonderful life and who better to put them in loving homes in our area but GRIN?
If you are interested in learning more about the Turkey dogs, please see the complete article on the website and be sure to follow their journey on the “Adoptable Goldens” pages.

GRIN Volunteers are the foundation of our organization. Our Appreciation Event celebrating our volunteers was enormously successful last year so the Board decided to make it an annual event. We will be celebrating all of your hard work and endless energy at our meeting on Saturday, May 14th. We plan to have a short meeting, beginning at 11 AM and then onto some FUN! We will be providing lunch and refreshments. It’s a great way to meet some of your e-mail friends and those whose name you are familiar with but have never met in person.
