sherman14044 2We have many new unsponsored goldens who need your help.  This sweet golden senior boy is Sherman and we estimated him to be around 8 years old.  He came to a shelter as a stray and seemed to have been wandering for awhile as he was think and in need of medical care.  He is one beautiful and loving boy and 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:     Banjo, Holden, Palmer, Phoenix, Sherman, Belle, Dublin, Molly and Seamus  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.
