GOLDEN RETRIEVER RESCUE INFORMATION
Almost every animal rescue organization has a place near and dear to my heart, and anyone who knows me knows that I have rescued abandoned animals all of my life, just as my mother did, and as my sister does.
These wonderful volunteers work tirelessly to rescue and rehabiliate golden retrievers and other dogs for adoption to forever homes. It takes a lot of effort from a large number of dedicated people and a lot of money as well. Most of these rescued dogs need some kind of medical attention and the vet bills are astromomical, and that's not including care for extreme medical needs. Once a golden is rescued it has to be fed and kept in a foster home until adopted. To raise the money for all of this, most organizations rely entirely on donations from sponsors and individuals, and have fundraisers such as golf tournaments, auctions and parties. It takes hundreds of individuals to run these fabulous rescue organizations and the result is that hundreds of dogs are saved every year.
Every year we donate to many different rescue organizations, and I help when I can by offering my art glass for fundraisers. These are a few of our favorites.
