NRGRR COVID-19 Response 

BrooksFortunately, our dogs aren’t able to contract the virus, but they are making sure their humans stay healthy!

With no shortage of dogs in need, we are attempting to continue with both our intake and adoption programs, with restrictions in place to adhere to the state and county precautions. As an all volunteer organization, any activity is at the discretion of each individual. All volunteers should only participate in activities they feel comfortable with, and should be taking all necessary precautions to keep safe (i.e., washing hands, sanitizing, distancing at least 6 ft, etc...). As changes occur, we will modify procedures to reflect current practices and precautions.

  • All events are cancelled until further notice. We have rescheduled the 2020 Golden Gala for October 10th and tickets and sponsorships remain available.
  • We are not accepting new adoption applications until May 15th. This was not an easy decision but it was one we felt was necessary for the health and safety of our volunteers and their families.
  • Meet and greets are cancelled until further notice. The Our Dogs web page will continue to be updated when dogs become available for adoption and we plan on including a "virtual meet and greet" video on most of the available dogs pages.
  • Current approved applicants can continue to monitor the Our Dogs pages and contact their application advisor if they are interested in a particular dog. We have guidelines in place to allow applicants to meet and/or adopt a dog from us, as long as both our volunteers and the applicant feel comfortable with the arrangements.
  • We are always looking for foster homes for our dogs. If you are interested in volunteering, please review our Fosters page, including the steps to foster flyer, and complete an application.
  • If you need to find a home for you golden, we continue to bring dogs into the program and we may be able to help. Please visit our Rehome Your Dog page to learn more.
We appreciate your patience and continued support as we navigate this uncertain time together.  While we are pausing our fundraising and community events, we are not “pawsing” our commitment to rescue, rehab, and adopt dogs in need. Please consider making a donation during this difficult time to help us continue our mission.
