Review for Goldens Without Borders Inc, Las Vegas, NV, USA
I've been so fortunate to share my home with quite a few rescued golden retrievers over the years. When I lost my last golden at age 14 about 1 and 1/2 years ago, I knew that I would be wanting to adopt again... I just wasn't sure where or when. When I heard about Goldens Without Borders, I submitted an application to adopt. I received a call from Sheila Donnelly shortly thereafter, and I knew almost instantly that I had found my new golden "family"! Sheila was so warm and helpful in explaining their process for rescue and adoption, and I felt completely confident that this organization had their hearts and their minds in precisely the right place. When I had the opportunity to help welcome in a group of dogs at LAX in December of 2020, I had the chance to meet so many wonderful people who are part of this family... adoptive families, foster families, and an amazing group of people volunteering their time to help these pups. I was so fortunate to be able to adopt one of these wonderful pups in December, and my sweet guy Journey found his forever home! Sheila and her team seem to manage the very complicated process of rescuing these dogs and making the whole process happen smoothly and efficiently, but we all know that NONE of it is easy! Bringing these dogs to the US from foreign countries...managing all the veterinary clearances and regulatory agency approvals ... organizing foster families and sorting out the proper fit for each dog to be adopted...it is all such a huge challenge...but Sheila and her team do it all amazingly well! I am so grateful to Goldens Without Borders for the wonderful work that they do, and I continue to help and support the organization in any way that I can. They are truly Heroes in my book!!!
