Dear friends of GRRSWF,
The past year has been an exciting and successful one for GRRSWF. We took in our 600th dog, Joy, a beautiful young female from South Korea,
as part of our ongoing efforts to raise awareness about the plight of dogs in foreign countries.
We also celebrated 6,000 Facebook fans, with a base of supporters from throughout the world.
We are now approaching our 700th intake and continue to work with owners and shelters throughout Florida to ensure that no golden is left in need.
We cannot continue our mission without your support. With veterinary expenses approaching $130,000 this year and a rescue that is all volunteer and
completely foster based, the vast majority of our budget goes toward veterinary care for the dogs we rescue.
While the occasional dog comes to us fully vetted and ready to adopt, dozens more require vaccinations, spay/neuter surgery,
microchipping and even extensive and expensive veterinary care ranging from heartworm treatment to hip surgery.
How can you help? All donations to our 501(c)(3) are tax-deductible. Checks can be mailed to P.O. Box 110987, Naples, FL 34108.
You can also donate here online.
We would also love your support for our two big fundraisers. Our GRRSWF 2015-16 calendars are now available and they are the best yet!
Order your own calendars here.
Coming up on Sunday, Feb. 21, 2016, is our seventh annual GoldenFest. Set for 9 a.m.-2 p.m. at the Shell Factory in North Fort Myers,
it promises to be a golden day for the entire family, especially the dogs! Participants will enjoy a multitude of dog-related vendors,
a grooming tent, dock dog diving, a huge silent auction and more.
As Thanksgiving approaches, we are counting our many blessings and looking forward to another year of saving dogs.
We hope we can count on your support to continue our mission.
