chester walker imageG.R.I.N. Dog Walker Program

When we take in Goldens who are ill and need extensive medical care or  perhaps we have Goldens that we don't have an available foster home, we need to board them at one of our vet partners, mainly at West Park Animal Hospital on the West side of Cleveland.  Our dog walker program was initiated to help give our Goldens a little extra TLC and also get daily walks in addition to their care. 

We need volunteers for this wonderful program!  If this is something that you are interested and can give an hour a week.  It's a rewarding experience and if you are interested in helping or for more information, just e-mail us at  DOGWALKER@GRINRESCUE.ORG and one of our coordinators will be in touch with you.  You can also view the powerpoint presentation given on this program on the link below.  Thank you for getting involved and helping!
