luca13042 1Luca came to us as a stray from a local shelter.  He was having trouble walking and when examined at our vet partner, he was found to have fractured hip and will need to have surgery and go through water therapy to help speed along his recovery.  We are not sure how his hip was fractured but we will make sure this sweet boy is taken care of 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:     Luca and Benson  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.

violet14012Sweet 8-year-old Violet came to us from a shelter; she had been homeless and on the road alone. Violet was almost completely blind from severe, end stage glaucoma, with high pressure that caused migraine-like head and eye pain. Our vet partner prescribed eye drops specifically formulated to reduce pressure, but they did not ease Violet's pain; in fact after one week her eye pressure had increased.

Our vet partner concluded that it was best to surgically remove both of Violet’s eyes. She’s had the procedure and is recovering nicely in her foster home. Once she fully recoups, it is anticipated that she will return to the spunky, fun-loving Golden that many of our volunteers saw glimpses of initially. At times, she would shake her entire body in delight, enjoyed pats, treats, and returned affection with kisses. Please don’t overlook this sweetheart simply because she is impaired, she has plenty of life and love to give her new adopter.

Fun Photo of the Week

Geuther Wally4 Web

Just a little shake will do it!

This fun photo was sent in by Laura and Jim Geuther of their golden Wally.  Wally was a G.R.I.N. dog adopted by the Geuther's in 2009.  He loves the water and as you can see, is quite ready to go in again! 

 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!
