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.
To remind you of Rusty’s background, he began displaying symptoms of lethargy and weight loss, and 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. A CT scan was required to confirm the diagnosis and determine the type of shunt; he was seen again, had the scan, and it confirmed the diagnosis.
Golden Retrievers In Need loves their goldens and we have learned that love has no borders. Due to the hard work of the Buckeye Bound Committee and your continued support and generosity, GRIN welcomed nine goldens from Turkey into their care on September 30, 2016. Seven of the Turkey dogs have already been placed in a loving home.
Following their vet check and a few days in foster care, they were ready for some picture taking. Guaranteed to make you smile!
Saving one animal may not change the world…but surely, for that one animal…the world will be changed forever.
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.
