A Message from the GRSRS&EC President
Dear Golden Friends:

Through the development of an extensive dog protection network of regional ACOs, Shelters and Veterinarians, DVGRR is constantly providing direct rescue services, in addition to making professional referrals to other animal care resources outside of their direct catchment area. 

This outreach saved a 7-year-old white-faced Golden Girl named "Goldie", brought into a local vet office by a farmer to be euthanized because he was " through wit
h her."  No life!

The Vet contacted DVGRR for rescue services for this Puppy Mill Golden Girl and staff immediately responded, bringing her back to Golden Gateway. She was admitted to the Sanctuary and made comfortable. When next checked there was a puppy by her side. A very, very small puppy...6 ounces. The staff was shocked but quickly sprung into action to provide both of them with the care they needed. They named the puppy Mr. Moose....tiny but tough. It 
was soon confirmed that to have any chance of survival that both of them needed very specialized inpatient care at an Emer gency Veterinarian Hospital. They were quickly transported to such a facility and Mr. Moose was cool to touch and unable to suck. The prognosis is very guarded as he did not have a very nutritious environment in utero and is also probably premature.

No matter what the outcome is for Mr. Moose and his mother they are loved, cared for in all ways possible and prayers are being said for them. 

This is the Lynne Glennon Sanctuary that you support in action...
the staff you applaud... and these efforts, to serve our beloved Goldens whether they are Golden Oldies or Golden Puppies, tug at our hearts. Your donations to GRSRSEC help us to support the many things that keep the Sanctuary going, so that the DVGRR can use funds directly for the care of the dogs.

Mr. Moose and his mother's care will be very costly. Please consider making a donation directly to The CODY FUND at to help in this medical emergency and those that will come in the future.

Recently (Sunday, April 24th) Goldie and Moose were moved back to the Sanctuary from the emergency care facility and the staff is giving them 24-hour direct care and supervision.They are in a special new donated whelping box with Moose also having a donated Stuffed Lamb toy with him. This Lamb toy makes a heartbeat sound and seems to give him great comfort as he snuggles up to it.

Sunday little Moose did better, and is up to 8 ounces on the natural goat milk and honey that he receives every 2 hours around the clock by bottle.

Special Thanks to all the staff and volunteers who are making such a life saving difference for this little guy and his Mom, and also to the many golden people donating to the Cody Fund.

Have a great week from everyone at GRSRS&EC!

President and Founder

1. Paw Pad care and other precautions to use to make the Summer Safe for your dog.

The following is a site for you to go to that has been posted by Homeward Bound Golden Retriever Rescue Program. It has multiple excellent thoughts regarding keeping your dog safe and happy during the summer months and emergency treatments for paw burns and other heat related problems. Well worth printing it out for your own files and sharing it with others.
