Thank you for deciding to help rescued golden retrievers! Your thoughtful kindness will change the lives of these dogs for the better every day.
Because of your generosity, six-year old Cooper no longer spends most of his time alone with little attention paid to him and no exercise. Instead, his foster family made sure his allergies were treated and his new exercise regime included walks, playing with tennis balls, and wrestling with his canine foster sibling. Although this gentle giant weighed 121 pounds at intake, Cooper slimmed down to the "double digits" before he was adopted in May!
Thanks to your support of Bentley's Fund, 11-year old Buddy didn't spend his last days with little attention and untreated medical conditions. Instead, he lived with an As Good as Gold foster family who made sure he was loved, had plenty of food, and was comfortable. Buddy's medical conditions ranged from severe arthritis to lymphoma but he still enjoyed life....one sweet day at a time.
Because of your generous Elsa's Fund donations, senior golden Sebastian no longer spends his days alone in his abandoned home. Instead, he lived with an As Good as Gold foster family who tended to his medical issues and provided him with plenty of loving care. In a few short months he gained almost 20 pounds, most of his medical conditions were resolved, and he was adopted by a family who saw past his age and previous living conditions.
Thanks to your support of the Stecker Fund, six-year old Fedora was rescued from dire circumstances and diagnosed shortly thereafter with a form of highly treatable cancer. After several courses of chemotherapy, it appears her cancer is in remission, although there are still several other medical issues that require attention. In the meantime, Fedora loves to ride in the car and play tennis ball fetch with her foster family.
