| Dear Prospective Rescue Family,
It is wonderful that you are considering opening up your home to one of our displaced
Some of the Goldens we rescue have had troubled histories. However, the majority simply have become too much, when the Golden’s former owners’ busy lifestyles have not allowed time for adequate training or attention. All of the orphaned Goldens are eagerly awaiting new homes and we are pleased that you are interested in our placement program.
You should also know that before any Golden is placed into either an adoptive or foster home, the Golden is first examined by our Veterinarian and given a clean bill of health. If not, you would be informed of such. The Golden is brought current on all shots and vaccinations, is tested for heartworms and then bathed. If the Golden has not been spayed or neutered, these procedures will be scheduled. We feel that spaying or neutering rescued Goldens is a part of responsible pet guardianship. Goldens that are placed through GRRAND are micro chipped to help in their return should they become lost or stolen. Upon placement, GRRAND requires that an adoptive family maintain necessary veterinary care for their rescued Golden.
After your completed Adoption Questionnaire is received by GRRAND, our Rescue Coordinator will review it and then contact your references. The next step will be to schedule a home visit. At your home visit a volunteer will share information regarding a rescued Golden’s transition into a new home environment and will also leave with you some literature for future reference.
If you should have any further questions, please feel free to contact us through our voice mail line or via this web site.
Thank you for your interest!
