Donations - Every Little Bit Helps!

TGRR’s operating income comes from fundraising events, donations, grants, and adoption fees. Supporters like you are vital to continuing TGRR's mission of rescuing and finding loving homes for Golden Retrievers in need.

When dogs come into our program they are given a full veterinary evaluation and necessary treatment. Many of these dogs have medical needs requiring heartworm treatment, surgery, medication and more. Sometimes we have to call upon veterinary specialists to evaluate and treat our dogs. All of our dogs are also spayed or neutered when medically appropriate. Our average medical cost per dog ranges from $500 to $900 depending on the year. This is much more than the highest adoption fee of $400 which we charge for young dogs up to 6 years old.

Some of the dogs coming to us also have behavioral issues which require training and evaluation by professional animal trainers and behaviorists before we can place them in their new home. All of these costs are in addition to the basics like food and heartworm and flea/tick preventative, which all our dogs require.

Of course, all of this takes money. We rely on the generous members of our TGRR family to support us in our mission. No donation is too small and we appreciate each and every one. Thank you very much for your commitment to helping this amazing breed and for your continued support.
