Turkey Naomi – A Blarney’s Fund Story

Turkey NaomiSometimes dogs come to Neuse River Golden River Rescue in need of specialized veterinary care. Blarney's Fund was created to help meet the financial expenses that go beyond routine care and allow supporters to specify that their donations go directly to our dogs with the most serious medical needs.

Our Blarney's page features some of the dogs who have come to us with special needs and is dedicated to NRGRR donors, volunteers, fosters and adopters who help them navigate their journey.

This month we are highlighting Turkey Naomi, one of our international rescue dogs that came to us in the fall of 2020. During foster care it was determined that she had a dislocated hip and would need very expensive surgery to improve her quality of life. Click here to read her story.

Please consider a donation to help support the medical care for these deserving dogs. Blarney’s Fund helps offset the cost for some of our most expensive procedures.
