Review for Golden Retriever Rescue Of Wisconsin, West Allis, WI, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I adopted two goldens from GRRoW about 3-1/2 years ago. During the process, I was very impressed with the efforts made to provide a good match. Ben and Bailey have proven to be as close to perfect as can be. GRRoW made sure they were healthy and well cared-for while in foster care. After the experience, I decided to become a volunteer, and we help with meet and greets, home visit interviews (139 to date), manning the call-in info line and various other activities. My initial good impression has since been reinforced - especially regarding the efforts GRRoW makes to resolve medical issues and more especially the lengths the teams go to in order to match dogs and adopters. The extremely high success rate is a direct result of those dedicated efforts. I'm involved with GRRoW daily, and I will be for the forseeable future. Rescue is hard work, but a good team of dedicated volunteers produces results - over 1750 goldens rescued and re-homed since GRRoW was founded in 2000.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Great satisfaction with the dogs placed with me, the quality of work done by volunteers - and their professionalism.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Find still more good volunteers.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Working with great people - and fun dogs!

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Dedicated to rescue and very hard-working.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

I have no specific recommendations, but it would be a fine challenge to organize an even more effective and widespread effort.

Ways to make it better...

We could find more volunteer foster homes. That is limiting the number of dogs that can be placed.
