This sweet Golden boy is Joseph. He was found as a stray and taken to a shelter. He appears to be blind and very thin and in need of a little TLC. Joseph is looking for his special new forever home and we will make sure that we take care of him and find the right home for him. 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: Thank you for sponsoring our goldens, please consider sponsoring one! 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.

Did you know that November is Adopt a Senior Pet Month? Here at G.R.I.N. we have a number of seniors that are looking for their fur-ever home. Therefore, now through the end of December, G.R.I.N. will waive the senior adoption fee, so that these special Goldens can find a home for the holidays! There are so many reasons to adopt one of these sugar faced pups, here are just a few:
- They are housebroken and well behaved
- Require significantly less exercise and stimulation
- They make excellent therapy dogs!
- They have a lot of love to give
Adopting a senior dog is a wonderful and rewarding experience. These dogs will give back more than you can ever imagine! If you are willing to give an old dog a second chance at life and meet our adoption criteria we would like to talk to you. Please email our Adoption Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org
An Urgent Plea to Ohio Residents:
Ohio laws are so weak that punishment for cases of companion animal abuse and neglect are nothing more than a slap on the wrist. House Bill 274, or "Goddard's Law," continues to languish in the Ohio Senate. While the reasons behind the Senate's resistance is unclear, they have promised to hold hearings after the November elections. Passing this bill would make it a felony on the first offense to knowingly cause physical harm to a companion animal. People who do such things must be called to account for them.
