KROGER GIFT CARD PROGRAM... IMPORTANT NEWS FOR MEMBERS OF THE CINCINNATI DIVISION OF KROGER STORES WHICH INCLUDES THE NORTHERN KENTUCKY/CINCINNATI/DAYTON AREA STORES...
KROGER GIFT CARDS FOR GRRAND ARE STILL VALID! As a charitable organization headquartered in Louisville, KY., GRRAND is located in the Mid South division of Kroger stores. The Mid South divisionís charitable program has been and still is tied to the gift cards. All of the gift cards received from GRRAND are still valid and all money added to the gift cards will still benefit GRRAND no matter where in the country you use your card.
The Cincinnati division of Kroger stores has changed their charitable program to one that involves registering the memberís Kroger Plus card. GRRAND cannot participate in this program as it is located in Louisville and can only participate in the Mid South divisionís charitable program.
Many of our Cincinnati division members have been told by cashiers and customer service representatives at their Kroger stores that the program is no longer valid. THIS IS NOT TRUE! Emails have been sent to the Cincinnati division Kroger stores to educate their employees that the GRRAND Kroger gift cards are still valid. If any employee tells you it is not, tell them to load money onto the card anyway. You can report any continued erroneous information given to you if you wish to the Cincinnati gift service office at 1-800-294-4438. By providing the storeís location they can contact the store directly to advise them.
Thank you for your continued use of your Kroger gift cards! This is a very large form of fund raising for GRRAND!




Adoption Fee changes
GRRAND's average cost per dog has increased to over $1,000, and, therefore, we need to implement a new adoption fee structure effective April 1, 2012:
Dogs up to 6 years old $325
Dogs 6-7 years old $305
Dogs 8-9 years old $175
Dogs 10+ years old no fee ($50 donation requested)
Pair: $450.00





Medical Sponsors desperately needed!
Medical sponsorships are very much needed to help GRRAND cover the vet expenses related to many of our dogs conditions... For example, Goldie has had a leg amputated, and there is plenty of follow up care for her. Channing and Rusty have cancer, an are in a hospice type care in their foster homes. We are doing all we can to keep their quality of life happy and comfortable, and it is with your help and support that we can take care of all of these needy dogs! Please visit our medical sponsorship page to make a donation for these dogs.



Heartworm Preventative is a Year Round MUST!!
In the past couple of months, more than six dogs that we have rescued have turned out to be heartworm positive! With treatment, a dog's life can be saved, and, without treatment, it can lead to a dog's death. The cure is costly, and usually takes 8 weeks or more to recover. The recovery period is also very painful for the dogs, besides the fact they are having poison shot into their system, they are also not allowed any activity during this period except to go to the bathroom. All of this could be avoided by giving dogs a simple monthly pill to prevent heartworms, but many dogs are not lucky enough to receive this. Dogs get heartworms when they are bitten by an infected mosquito. The mild Winter we have had is going to make mosquitos unbearable this Spring/Summer! Remember to keep your dogs on heartworm preventative year round! Did you remember to give your dog his or her pill this month?

FOSTER HOMES DESPERATELY NEEDED You Can Save a Life . . .
The economic collapse has rippled down to the pet population well beyond our expectations. Between foreclosures and families unable to financially care for their goldens, GRRAND has had dogs come in at alarming rates. Unless we find additional foster homes immediately, GRRAND could be in a position to be forced to turn away dogs, a heartbreaking choice that may have to be made. Would you consider fostering a needy golden? All these sadly displaced dogs ask for is a safe haven and loving touch until they can find their forever homes. GRRAND covers all expenses for foster dogs. You provide the love and the food. If you are willing to be a foster family, please complete the on line foster application at www.grrand.org. If you are a former GRRAND adopter, please make a note of that in the comment section at the bottom of the form
