Review for Golden Retriever Rescue of the Rockies, Golden, CO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

We adopted Tucker in 2003 as a pup. He was a litter of 10 and his Mom and siblings were released to GRRR while Mom was still pregnant. Lucky for me, I retired early and It wasn't long after Tucker's adoption that I started volunteering as the Treasurer and bookkeeper. Then I was asked to pick up the mail and sort it. Then I transported dogs who needed help, mailed thank you cards, receipts, and fostered dogs. I'm now chairing the capital campaign, Bark To The Future.

Most people are shocked to learn that Golden Retrievers, of all dogs, need to be rescued. GRRR has been rescuing and rehoming Goldens for about 15 years now and the volume of dogs has only increased. There are so many different reasons a Golden will need help - a move, a divorce, an expensive medical episode, or neglect. GRRR takes them in, no matter what the problem is.

I'm involved because this group is dedicated and committed to helping these dogs live the life that they deserve. Nothing will get in their way to make sure a dog in need gets that forever home that is out there, waiting for them.
