Rescue a dog,  Foster a dog, Don't buy a dog from a Puppy Mill!!!
A rescue volunteer created this wonderful video about  how many dogs there are in shelters across the US, and encouraging people to foster or rescue a shelter dog to show how happy families become when these dogs  find a loving new home. 

NGRR encourages getting your new dog from a shelter, a breed rescue group (like NGRR) or a reputable breeder.  We ask you not to buy dogs in pet stores or from backyard brokers becasue there is a reasonable chance that they came from puppy mills, where the dogs are raised in abominal conditions at the lowest cost.   The retail pet stores and puppy brokers, then offer them to unsuspecting buyers who think they are getting a healthy, pure bred dog at a bargain price.   Buying from pet stores or backyard brokers only encourages the puppy mills to breed more dogs.

Fight back!!!  If you or someone you know has a dog with cancer of any kind, go the TGen website to find out how to submit a blood  sample.   They are seeking 2000 samples for  a hereditary DNA study . TGen will cover the cost of shipping and the blood analysis, plus will allow you $10 for the cost for the drawing the sample.   (However your vet may do it for free knowing it is going to research).

My name is Gus #67554 and I am now 10 1/2 yo old beautiful golden boy. I have been in rescue since July 2017 and am looking for my forever home. Check out my updated pictures. What can I say; I am your typical senior golden, move in ready. I do love people, kids, dogs and cats. I am happiest when I am with my people and love going on adventurers. In a car and I will go with you anywhere. When I came into rescue, I was a mess. I am allergic to fleas, horrible fungal infections and of course ear infections. I have been on some great tasty grain free food and treated for fleas monthly with Simparica. NGRR has continued to treat me with fungal and steroid medications and weekly baths. I look and feel so much better.
Letís talk about my special needs: I was also diagnosed with KCS, keratoconjunctivitis sicca, or dry eye in the right eye. I will need to continue with the Optimmune and artificial tears. Optimmune costs approx. $34 and last 2-3 months. They keep trying to get me off the steroids and fungal medications but then I get itchy. The ketoconazole (fungal) is $48.00 a month and the Prednisone is $45 every 2 months. My annual medical could be $1,000 a year. I will need a loving home prepared to manage a golden retriever with chronic skin and eye issues.

 Fosters are our most important people. Fosters take in surrendered dogs who need a safe home right away, they make sure vet visits and shots are done, and other wise care for the dog as if it were their own while in their custody.  Our fosters are compassionate, giving people, willing to invest their time and talent to help a dog in need.

If you are interested in becoming an NGRR foster, see our online foster application . One of our members will contact you and arrange an interview.
