ScarletThis past spring, GRIN welcomed two special deliveries into our care—Scarlet and Grey—two Golden Retrievers from Turkey.  For these dogs it has been an extraordinary, life-changing journey. Thanks to you, these dogs received a second chance.  Both have been placed into loving homes.

Across the county, purebred goldens surrendered to rescue groups have dwindled but adoptees willing to open up their homes and their hearts to this wonderful breed has not declined. What a perfect match, getting dogs that desperately need a home matched up with families desperately wanting a Golden.

penny16071 1This beautiful five year old girl is Penny.  Her owner due to family circumstances could no longer keep her and asked us to find her a home that could give her the love and care she deserves.  She is great with children and justs want to love you.  She will make some lucky family a wonderful addition.

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:   Charlie, June, Penny, Maxine and Titan    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.
