This year we’ve added a 1 or 2 mile walk through the park to the event so all can enjoy the beautiful fall leaves and work up an appetite to sample a variety of chili.  Don’t like chili?  We will also serve hot dogs, beverages and desert and doggie ice cream.  Now is the time to start thinking of a great costume for your K9 and you too!  We will have a parade of costumes and judging the top 3 for winning a prize.  We will also have raffles, homemade doggie treats and more.  Need to do some shopping?  We are having a SALE on all GRIN short sleeve T’s(non embroidered) for $15, men’s and women’s GRIN  embroidered denim in blue or black for $25 along with GRIN embroidered hoodies for $40.  GRIN’S beautiful 2019 calendar will be available for only $10!   Get some shopping done early for your Golden loving friends and benefit GRIN!

We are seeking sponsors in any denomination for the bobbing for hot dogs pools, doggie bags, and $25 Gift Cards for pet stores for the best costume prizes.  We are also looking for donations for our raffles.  If you wish to sponsor, make a donation, be a chili chef or have questions, please contact This email address is being protected from spambots.

See you at the Howl O Ween party which will be a Howling good time!
 

Golden Sponsorships - How you can help

We have many goldens in our program who are without sponsors and need your help and support. So many of these goldens have special medical needs and will be in our care longer than normal. If you are unable to be a foster, this is a way in which you can help a specific golden. Please take a minute to click on "Read More" and you may find a golden whose story touches your heart.

Everyone at GRIN has been supportive before, during and after the adoption of our senior girl Honey. We love our GRIN family who always puts the dogs needs first and foremost!

"As we quickly approach the anniversary of Gus' adoption, our family wanted to send a BIG thank you your way. We feel so lucky to have found such a wonderfully supportive and dedicated group of people at GRIN."

Fostering has been a wonderful experience for me, 12 years and 56 dogs later! I like being a step in the process of moving dogs into permanent, loving homes.
