blue16041 vet1Blue is our little Goldendoodle who came into GRIN's care in April. She exhibited possible neurological issues including difficulty walking and standing. After an assessment by a specialist and extensive testing, Blue's been diagnosed with a bruised spinal cord in the neck area from a possible head trauma. She's on several medications and will undergo rehab, be kept under a watchful eye at our vet partner, and then go to a foster home. While not completely out of the woods, we're so hopeful that Blue will live a good long, healthy life. She is hopeful for more sponsors and that you will follow her progress on her page.

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:   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.

25th AnniversaryHelp celebrate GRIN's 25th Anniversary by submitting your best photo shots for the 2017 GRIN Calendar. In the past 25 years, this all-volunteer organization has helped rescue, rehabilitate, and find homes for over 3,000 dogs in need. We want to honor you and your dogs in the 2017 calendar.

  • You are welcome to send a recent or past photo. We need general photos of your dogs (playing, sleeping, getting into trouble, etc.) as well as themed photos.
  • We will try to use as many photos as possible in the calendar in some way.
  • Photos will be selected on composition, quality and emotional appeal.
  • All photos must be received by May 31st to be considered for the calendar.
  • Remember, photographs that have a horizontal orientation will look best in the relationship to the printed format (10X8).

paw blackCONGRATULATIONS TO DICK GODDARD and thank you to our State Senators for getting Goddard's Law (HB60) passed!!

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.
