Golden Retriever Rescue of the Rockies
Funded from 2014 to 2015
Golden Retriever Rescue of the Rockies (GRRR) is dedicated to the rescue, placement and public awareness to ensure that Golden Retrievers are adopted by people able to provide a safe, loving home. Golden Retriever Rescue of the Rockies is a mostly volunteer non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that helps place unwanted, abandoned or surrendered Golden Retrievers into loving forever homes. Founded in 1996 by Laura Terroux, they have experienced continued organizational growth while working toward the goal of caring for their breed. GRRR re-homes approximately 300 Golden Retrievers annually.
Grey Muzzle's grant is used to further The Golden Years Support Program (“Golden Oldies”) - a combination of existing, expanded and new efforts to ensure senior Golden Retrievers receive the care they need to be placed in loving forever homes or permanent GRRR foster homes.
This program includes five segments:
Senior dog adoptions; Golden Angel Program, focusing on Goldens with extraordinary medical or behavioral needs; Seniors for Seniors Program; Holistic Treatments; and Foster Respite Care.
