Please join us for a bit of Hocus Pocus on Sunday October 16th for our annual HOWL at the Oak Grove Pavilion at the Brecksville Metroparks. Ticket price is $20/pp.

Our Spooktacular event will begin at 10 am and go until 1:00 pm.  A ton of frightful fun is planned- we will have breakfast, a costume contest, raffle baskets, and Portraits by Martha will be there to take photos of your pooch!  This event is open to the public and all dog-friendly dogs are welcome.  (all dogs must be on a leash, no flexi’s please).  Registration is open now and can be accessed here.  This is our last park event of the year so don’t miss out on the fun!


As many of you know GRIN’s love of golden retrievers truly “has no borders” and we have been lucky to be involved in efforts to rescue dogs internationally.  Funds raised from this year’s HOWL will go to help offset the cost and care for Violet, a 1.5 year old red golden who was rescued from the meat trade in China.  She is set to arrive in the US at the end of this month where she will be seen by our partner vet and head to foster care.

We have several options available to help support Violet in her journey to a new life here in the US:


$500- The Great Pumpkin

$250- Haunted House

$100- Pumpkin Patch

$50- Wicked Witch

$25-Jack O Lantern

$15 Ghouls & Ghosts

$10 Candy Corn

$100 Doggie Ice Cream

Halloween Baskets

Unable to make the event?  No problem, you can still support Violet!  We will be selling Halloween cookie baskets for your pooch.  Ordering will be available online soon, so keep an eye on social media and our website for further details!
