Designate the Use of Your Gift
NGRR relies upon placement and adoption donations, special events, merchandise sales, and charitable donations for its funding. Our primary goal is that all our Rescue Goldens are well-cared-for and loved. The on line donation form has all the fields you need to donate to any of the following:
1. General Fund:
Contributions to this fund will pay for ordinary veterinary care such a spay or nuetering, innoculations, routine check ups and other expenses directly related to our Goldens in foster care. Any excess monies we raise in this fund are used to help us in our fight against puppy mills and puppy auctions, and other NGRR related outreach programs.
We also occasionally use our General Funds to help other animal rescue agencies during catastrophic events such as earthquakes, forest fires, hurricanes, tornadoes, etc.; and to offset some of the administrative costs associated with training our people.
2. Senior Fund:
Contributions to this fund will be used to support the extra veterinary and foster care usually required for dogs 8 years and older--our well-deserving Golden Oldies.
3. Special Needs Fund:
Inspired by "Zack", a severely dysplastic Golden taken in and treated by NGRR, this fund was established to provide extensive veterinary care, surgery, and rehabilitation to young and well-deserving Goldens who are critically ill, deformed or injured, but who have a good chance of recovery and finding a new loving home. These dogs need immediate access to funds to restore their quality of life-and, in extreme cases, to save their lives-without placing a financial burden on their adoptive families. See Special Needs Goldens for additonal background.
You can designate a specific dog to benefit from your Special Needs gift. Any funds donated in excess of what was needed for a particular dog will go to the next deserving dog. Similarly, we will use the General Fund to make up any shortfall for a deserving dog.
You can donate to create a Memorial for any special friend (human or canine) who has left us. You can just make a donation and tell us who it is for in the on line donation form and we will send an acknowledgement to whom you designate. We can also create a page for your Memorial on our website for a $50 donation. See also our Memorials and Tributes page for more details.
You can donate to create a Tribute in honor of a special event, or to honor a special friend in your life or the lives of those closest to you.
