boots14072 1We have had many new goldens come in the past couple of weeks and many have no sponsors.  Please look thorugh our goldens and read their stories--maybe you can help. 

This beautiful golden boy is Boots!  As you can see he has four white paws, so his name is quite appropriate.  This sweet 5 year old boy was a stray and found himself in a shelter waiting on someone to come for him but they never did.  G.R.I.N. has him now and we will certainly care for this beautiful boy and find him a 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:     Bentley, Bliss, Boots, Cheyenne, Douglas, Gibson,  Ginger, Lizzy, and Oakley   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.

fingerPLEASE READ: G.R.I.N. has very few available young goldens at this time, so unless you are willing/able to foster or consider adopting an older dog, we unfortunately cannot accept your application at this time.  We are an all-volunteer organization and currently have a backlog of applications to process and a waiting list of approved adopters. We appreciate your patience and your willingness to support rescue.  Thank you!

Interested in fostering?  foster@grinrescue.org

Fun Photo of the Week

Jonah and Lucy Grace Berigan fun photo

Lovin' the Snow in Cleveland!

These two beautiful goldens out having fun in the snow are Jonah and Lucy Grace Berigan.  Jonah (fka Chopper) was adopted in early February and Lucy Grace was adopted last May.  These two lucky G.R.I.N. goldens have found their forever homes and we couldn't be happier.  This photo was sent in by their proud mom, Sr. Mary Berigan.  Please consider adopting a senior golden!

 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!
