Golden Guardian Program


Would you like to name a foster dog? All of our rescue dogs have unique names as their identifiers, instead of numbers. The Golden Guardian program allows you to choose the name of one of NRGRR's foster dogs. 

Sponsorship is only $100. As part of the sponsorship, we will keep you updated on the progress of your foster dog while they are in our program. If you would like us to list your sponsorship below, follow the instructions on the payment form and include a brief 1-3 sentence reason for your names, as well as how you would like your name to appear. 

Submit your top 3 name choices. We will ensure that the name has not been used before and will assign it to a foster dog. Because we try to use unique names for each dog you will want to choose names that are not often used. Feel free to use a special name to honor a loved one, or a funny or silly name to reflect the golden's personality.
