With the ever-increasing number of dogs GRIN continues to take in, we are thrilled to be nominated to participate in the third annual EmbraceCLE Community Challenge.  

This challenge is aimed at highlighting the hardworking, local organizations that make Cleveland great.  We will be competing against other local non-profits to see who can raise the most money during the challenge.  The prize amounts are significant: 1st place is $15,000, 2nd place is $8,000 and 3rd place is $4,500! WOW!  The challenge is open NOW until September 30th. Please consider donating and sharing this challenge to help GRIN win the grand prize. (All donations must be made through our campaign page for GRIN to receive credit for the challenge.)

Please visit the challenge landing page for additional details on the challenge, including rules and a list of other non-profits we are competing against. 

Keep an eye on social media in the month of September as we highlight some of the special cases GRIN has been involved in this year. These dogs truly encompass the passion and commitment our organization has in saving golden retrievers. Saving dogs like these wouldn’t be possible without the continued support of our membership, we are truly grateful for your generosity.

People Foods Dogs Can and Can’t Eat By AKC Staff | Apr 24, 2020 Dedicated dog lovers tend to be very kind people. We share our hearts and homes (and for some lucky pups, even the foot of our beds) with our canine pals. Surely there is nothing wrong with sharing our favorite people foods with our dogs too, right? Not necessarily. Many of the foods, such as fruits and vegetables, 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.

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."
