arthur16034 4Meet Arthur.  His story is heartbreaking as he has come to us from the APL who took him in from an abandon home where he and another dog were tethered to the home.  He was left with no food, water, shelter and to fend for himself with what he could reach.  We are so grateful to the APL in saving him contacting GRIN.  We are committed to make sure that he has the medical care he needs and find him a new forever home, one where he will be loved and cared for.

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 all of our goldens!   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.
