Meet and Greets to Resume

something to sing about We are excited to announce that we are resuming our Meet and Greets! Our next event will be at our new location Zoomy Dogs in Durham. Their information is listed on their webpage. It is a very cool, large space with lots of room and they are excited to host us. We are operating under the Safer at Home Phase 3 guidelines until further notice, and everyone attending should be wearing a mask. We want everyone to be safe as we resume this activity.

Golden on the Green Virtual Charity Golf Tournament

Golden on the GreenUnfortunately, given the COVID situation, we had to cancel our in-person 19th Annual Golden on the Green Charity Golf Tournament this year. However, we still want to keep the tradition alive and decided to host a virtual tournament so you can still support NRGRR while playing golf this fall.

Playing is easy! For a $25 donation per player, each person will be registered to win one of two free registrations in the 20th Annual Golden on the Green Charity Golf Tournament next August. Additionally, if you team posts pictures to social media using the hashtag #goldenonthegreen, you will be eligible to win Golden on the Green merchandise from the NRGRR Store. 

Blackwell Tee SponsorshipFor those that miss our tee sponsorships, we have a virtual plan for that as well. For a $100 donation, you can honor your pet or loved one with a virtual "In Honor of" or "In Memory of" tee sign that we will add to our web page, announce in the Rescue Ranger newsletter, and share on social media.

International Rescue

NRGRR recently rescued 16 golden retrievers from Turkey, China, and Kosovo and we have additional dogs from China and Turkey scheduled to arrive in the coming months.

Medical Blog


Gracie Lou

In this month's medical blog post, our Medical Coordinator Katie McKay revisits a couple of past blog posts about fire ants. They are never fun to deal with but if you have a curious dog that likes to stick their nose where it doesn't belong, it can be big trouble. Katie discusses first aid and signs that your dog may be having an allergic reaction if they happen to get attacked by a fire ant swarm.
