Name A Foster

Stacy20A fun way to support NRGRR is to become a Golden Guardian Sponsor. With a $100 donation you get to name a foster dog and we will keep you updated on their progress while they are in our program.

All of our rescue dogs have unique names as their identifiers, so you may have to get creative to ensure the name has not been used before. You are encouraged to use a special name to honor a loved one, or a funny or silly name to reflect the Golden's personality.  

There is even an option to list your sponsorship on our Golden Guardian web page where we include a photo of your foster dog and your reason for their special name. Click here for more information and to purchase your sponsorship.

Alumni Updates


When a dog becomes an NRGRR dog, they are one for life. We are able to follow our dogs transformation from rescue to adopt but some of the greatest stories are about how well they are thriving in their fur-ever home.
If you have special pictures or stories that you would like to share with us, please send them to Your updates may be shared on our publications or social media pages.
