The Look Beyond Time Fund is used to pay the expenses of our sweet senior Goldens (age eight and older) and special needs Goldens who require extensive and expensive medical procedures and care. At least 45% of our Rescue Goldens are in these two categories.
Funding from this endowment has financed extraordinary procedures such as orthopedic surgeries including hip replacements, ophthalmologic examinations and surgeries, as well as special tests and treatments for geriatric Goldens awaiting adoption.
The Look Beyond Time Fund also supports Yankee Golden Retriever Rescue's C.A.R.E. (Comprehensive Assistance for Rescue Elders) and our Senior to Senior Program. Created to address adopters' concerns about adopting senior Goldens who may have chronic medical conditions or experience unexpected and expensive health issues, YGRR's C.A.R.E. program assists families willing to adopt a Golden age 10 and over. Provided the medical procedure is handled by an approved medical facility, YGRR assumes the financial responsibility for Goldens in this program. YGRR's Senior to Senior Program matches senior citizens and senior Goldens, providing them with the benefits of the C.A.R.E. program as well as assistance in transporting the dog to and from the vet or the groomer.
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.

The Look Beyond Time Fund is a favorite with our supporters because of the warmth and sympathy that our senior and special needs Goldens evoke.
