I have been an active volunteer with Golden Retriever Rescue of WI (GRRoW) since 2005. There are many animal rescue groups throughout the country, but I believe that there are not many that provide as much care to the goldens in its care, as GRRoW does. And by care, I mean many different types of care. From the love each foster home gives its foster golden, to the veterinary services afforded to each golden in GRRoW, these are just a few of the many examples. It takes an army of volunteers to keep a rescue group strong and GRRoW has that. Not only do the volunteers of GRRoW provide love and shelter for GRRoW dogs, they strive to learn more about dog behavior, illnesses, prevention of health issues, and more importantly, their well-being. The leadership teams within GRRoW do an insurmountable amount of work - all on their own time. Being in a leadership position in GRRoW is like having another full-time job. But, we do it because it's our passion and nothing gives us more gratitude than saving one more golden. I've been with GRRoW for 5 of the 10 years of GRRoW's existence and I will be with GRRoW for many many years to come.
