WHAT WE DO AND WHY
As you browse our website, you will notice that there is a strong dedication to senior and special needs Golden Retrievers. Our organization wants to be an advocate for these special dogs. The seniors enrich our lives and enrich each day with their wisdom; the special needs dogs enrich our lives each day with their gratitude and unconditional love.
Older dogs and special needs dogs find it particularly hard to survive once they are homeless. Shelters euthanize them because no one wants to adopt them; rescues hesitate to bring them into the organization because they tend to drain valuable resources.
GRINinc’s mission is to improve the ability of the United States 501c3 Golden Retriever rescues to provide care, comfort and homes for these special dogs through our GIFTED GOLDEN GRANT PROGRAM. The organizations that we support through our grants are chosen carefully.
