Golden Guardian - Name a Foster Dog

Beau 21A fun way to support NRGRR is to become a Golden Guardian Sponsor. And now, with our reduced price of a $50 donation, it is even easier for you to name a foster dog! 

As a Golden Guardian sponsor, you will remain connected to your sponsor dogs journey to their furever home.

With your sponsorship, we will list your foster on our Golden Guardian web page including their photo and your reason for their special name. There is even an option to give the gift of a Golden Guardian sponsorship to a special friend or loved one. Click the button below for more information and to purchase your sponsorship.

Medical Blog

Dog food packaging makes a lot of claims, but what does it really mean. In this month's medical blog post, our Medical Coordinator Katie McKay helps us understand what terms like “All Natural,” “Organic,” and “Human-Grade” really tell us about what is or isn't in the dog food.
