Thank You GRIN Family Updated 10/29/2020
We want to THANK OUR GRIN FAMILY and everyone who has supported us through our 2020 event season. Due to Covid-19, we faced many fundraising challenges. Because of our generous supporters, we were able to hold Virtual Fundraisers; Bark In Your Park in May, the Ice Cream Social in July, August Auction and our Howl O' Ween Party & Pumpkin Pull in October! We were also able to hold two, in person Swim/Dockdiving events, where we could maintain safe protocols and social distancing.Because of the continued financial support we received, we are able to continue rescuing dogs that have very specific and often very expensive medical and behavioral needs. The GRIN Board of Trustees thanks you and the dogs who are now safe and happy and healthy also thank you!

The damage done during the years in the mill can be overcome, but it takes the right environment, time and dedication. What we are looking for in a mill dog foster/adopter: a fenced yard with a traditional fence another well socialized dog…Read More
Earlier this year, as my husband and I moved through the foster application process, we were both excited and nervous. There were so many unknowns. We had no idea what to expect in a displaced dog, what we were capable of and what was best for our resident Golden, Luna. But we wanted to make a difference in the path of a dog who needed us, and above all else,…Read More
