TVGRR wants to help as many Goldens and Golden Mixes in need as possible and one way to ensure we can is by you becoming a supporter through membership or your donations. Every dollar goes ‘to the dogs’ to meet their needs from nose to tail. Costs are high and it is because of people like you and our Service Supporters (veterinarians, boarding facilities and others) who offer their services at a reduced rate, we are able to continue to help our Goldens.
EVERY dollar goes to the care and housing of our dogs until they find their furever homes. Every dog we bring in must first visit a vet to be sure they are in good health. In all cases, the dogs are brought up-to-date on their required shots and tested for certain things (i.e. fecal analysis, urinalysis, heartworms, etc.) and have to be spayed or neutered. Our adoption fees rarely, if ever, cover these costs but because of generous people like you, we are able to continue our mission of saving and re-homing Goldens and Golden mixes.
