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 8 golden retrievers from Turkey and we have 12 additional dogs from China and Turkey scheduled to arrive in the coming months. Your donation toward our international fund will help us rescue these and more beautiful golden retrievers from overseas.

NRGRR Golden Guardian Program

Willie NelsonA 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.  

A new option this year is to have your sponsorship listed on our Golden Guardian web page. There we will include a photo of your foster dog and a short reason for their special name. Click here for more information and to purchase your sponsorship.
