THANK YOU GRIN FAMILY

GRIN 2020 Event Season

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! For more information click on "Read More".

Many of you may ask why we are engaging in overseas rescue.  The reason is due to the lack of Golden Retrievers who need our help domestically.  COVID has changed most areas of our lives and the Goldens have been no exception.  With the dramatic increase in working from home, the commercial breeders now are selling the breeding dogs that are no longer productive to the general public.   The demand Read More
Meet Ginger. This sweet senior came to live with us in November of 2019. She was picked up as a stray and when the owners were contacted they relinquished her. Thank goodness for Ginger! She was underweight, had a number of benign mammary tumors, scraggly fur, and bare elbows (which gave us a clue as to where she may have laid her head). We had recently been approved as fosters Read More
  Over the past year GRIN has taken in an increased number of puppy mill dogs and as a result we are in need of appropriate foster/adoptive homes.  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

"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.
