Review for Northern California Golden Retriever Rescue, Menlo Park, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been a volunteer with NGRR for over 10 years. All of the volunteers work very hard to do the right thing by every dog that comes into their care. The organization board supports and backs up the volunteers to do the best and most they can for each and every situation.
In reference to the other comment here, bottom line, the judge sided with Jill and Norcal. There is always more to the story and this is just one that happened to be very complicated. Get the facts.
Now back to all the good work NGRR does. Medical bills last year reached over $150k. Broken legs, cancer, hips, knees, heartworm, aspergillus, obesity - we see it all. Two six month old puppies that spent their first months in agony as their eye lashes turned in and rubbed on their eyes - we fixed that and now they are happy, healthy dogs living a great life in their forever home. NGRR does all these things with only donations and volunteers. We don't have a kenel, our dogs are welcomed into foster homes to be loved until the right family comes along and is matched to them.

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

All of my dogs (3 now) are adopted from NGRR. I saw a story in the newspaper about a golden rescue in Texas and the good work they were doing. I found NGRR in my area and wanted to volunteer. I had my first golden from a puppy and loved her more than life and wanted to help the ones not so lucky.

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

I'd like to see NGRR do more to educate the public on rescue as a whole. They have recently stepped up and are partnering with The K9 Cancer Walks to help find a cure to canine cancer and I am delighted about that.

Role:  Volunteer & I foster, pick up surrenders, do home visits and transport.
