The Backstory of Hope, a GRIN Turkey Dog Whose Life is Forever Changed
We are thrilled to announce Hope, one of GRIN’s Operation Buckeye Phase 2 pups, enjoyed her time in foster care, but now has found her forever home with a prior GRIN adopter complete with a GRIN Golden sister named Izzy.
While we continue our mission to rescue Goldens in our service area – and we’ve had lots come in recently – this operation has been very important to those in Turkey that are looking after and caring for the countless strays, and it’s been important and gratifying to us as well.
SAVE THE DATE for GRIN's 25th Silver Anniversary on Saturday October 21, 2017 back at St. Michaels Woodside Party Center in Broadview Hts. The Gala Committee has once again decided to have a Night at the Races as part of our evening excitement. We have already begun seeking donations of overnight stays, gift cards and monetary donations to make our anniversary a spectacular celebration of dedication and rescue of our favorite breed, the Golden Retriever. Continue to watch for updates on the GRIN website. If you'd like to help, make a donation or have questions about the Gala, please contact: development@Grinrescue.org.
Dear GRIN Family & Friends,
Adorable little Rusty began displaying symptoms of lethargy and weight loss, and he was diagnosed with a potential liver shunt based on blood work. His owners were unable to afford the testing, surgery and care required, therefore the family made the painful decision to relinquish him to GRIN so he could live a normal life.
Many THANKS to all who attended and had a HOWLING good time!
We had 57 humans and 36 canines attend our Howl O Ween Party and Pasta dinner this past Sunday. The cool fall breeze with a sunny blue sky was perfect. We had of the best group of costumes we've ever seen for both humans and canines. This was a very imaginative group and the judges had a very difficult time selecting the winners. We had some fierce treat stacking for humans and the dogs enjoyed bobbing for hot dogs in the kiddie pools and performing a trick for treats at the various doggie stations.
The Chinese Auction items were fabulous and our own Sr. Mary won the Love Rocks raffle. It's ironic since Sr. Mary picked it up and brought it to the event and then took it back home! We are grateful to our membership and friends support helping us add almost $1,500 to our Treasury. For more information, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
