GRIN 25thAnniversary LogoIn 1992, a group of Golden Retriever enthusiasts who had the foresight to see the need for rehoming unwanted Golden Retrievers incorporated Golden Retrievers In Need Rescue service as a 501C3 non-profit organization.  They were truly the forerunners of rescue since back in the ‘90’s, rescue was not a common practice.  We are excited to share that 2017 marks GRIN’s 25th year of rescue; saving well over 3,000 homeless Goldens.  Marking 25 years is a milestone which everyone should be proud of.  Together, we can do anything and we do!  We will be celebrating our 25th anniversary in a variety of ways from a very special Golden Gala celebration you won’t want to miss, to custom anniversary bling to GRIN window clings and other anniversary memorabilia throughout 2017.

This sweet golden boy is Sullivan.  He came to GRIN from a shelter where he was turned in as a stray and no one came to claim him.  He is really very gentle and sweet, very timid and was very scared.  Sullivan needs a home that will give him all the love and attention he deserves and will make a wonderful addition to any family.

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:    Sullivan, Tripp and King  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.
