NRGRR 2021 Calendars are here!

2021 NRGRR Calendar

This year’s calendar contest was our most successful ever in terms of bringing in money though the voting process. All totaled we brought in over $18,000. We hope you will keep this trend going by purchasing one or many calendars for yourself, friends, and family! 

NRGRR Planning Calendar

This year we are offering two types of calendars, the traditional wall calendar we have had for years and, new this year, we have a 7"x10" hard cover monthly planning calendar including dog photos with stories in front, followed by 70 pages of ruled note paper.

The cost for the wall calendar is $18 each and for the planning calendar is $40 each, plus applicable tax and shipping fees. Click here to purchase your calendar from the NRGRR Store. 
We will also be selling the calendars and planners this Saturday, November 28th at SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY in downtown Apex. We will be stationed next to "Binkie and Bell" in front of the Halle Cultural Arts Center from 1-4 PM.

Start your Christmas shopping early and stock up!

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. 

Click here to learn more out our virtual golf tournament and to register to play or purchase a tee sponsorship.

International Rescue

NRGRR recently rescued 27 golden retrievers from Turkey, China, and Kosovo and we have additional dogs from Turkey scheduled to arrive in the coming weeks. Your donation toward our international fund will help us rescue these and more beautiful golden retrievers from overseas.

Meet and Greet

Clair, Maggie, and Willie Nelson

With limited available dogs and government restrictions getting tighter with COVID cases increasing, our Meet and Greets will be held on a case by case basis through at least the end of the year. We will announce our plans on our Meet and Greet webpage a couple of days before the scheduled dates, which is the first and third Saturday of the month. Click here for more information about our Meet and Greets.

Medical Blog


Gracie Lou

In this month's medical blog post, our Medical Coordinator Katie McKay introduces us to Cannabidiol, or CBD. In part 1 of a 2 part series, Katie provides several questions to ask yourself if you are considering using CBD as a therapy for your pet. She also discusses the state of the science and which conditions it might be reasonable to consider using it.
