The Operating/General Fund pays for the comprehensive medical care YGRR provides for each of the hundreds of Rescue Goldens we assist every year (veterinary examinations, spaying or neutering, vaccinations, heartworm test and treatment if necessary, blood tests, dental work, diagnostic tests as indicated, biopsies when necessary, geriatric blood profiles for dogs 8 years old and older, medications, etc.). The Operating/General Fund also supports the cost of operating YGRR's first class adoption facility where our homeless Goldens await new homes. Eighty-nine percent of all YGRR operational costs are for direct dog care expenses.
Is there someone in your life having a special birthday, anniversary, or perhaps welcoming a new family member (human or canine!)? You can help them celebrate any joyous occasion with a gift to Yankee Golden Retriever Rescue recognizing this Golden lover. Holidays can also be a perfect time to pay tribute to a friend's or family member's love for Golden Retrievers. Your donation will be acknowledged with a gift card informing the person being honored of your generosity (no amount will be mentioned) and you will receive a thank you card from YGRR.
Or you may wish to remember someone who cherished a Golden during their lifetime or honor a special dog waiting at Rainbow Bridge with a memorial gift to YGRR. This heartfelt remembrance is also acknowledged with a gift card to the friends or the family you designate.
It's easy to make a donation to YGRR. Donations are processed through Yankee Golden Retriever Rescue's webstore, "Golden Goodies."
When you are making a donation in recognition or in memory of a person or dog, please choose a category listed below and the type your message in the space provided (To recognize Alex Smith on his birthday.
