Keystone Golden Retriever Rescue, Inc
In September 2005 a male golden came into Keystone Rescue after being tied to a tree for over a year. "Scooby", now renamed "Nick" received an April grant back in October for special behavior rehabilitation. Now look where he is! Nick was friendly and playful. After being listed on the website, www.kgrrescue.com, he caught the attention of the West Virginia Division of Corrections' K-9 unit. Three trainers from the department came to DuBois, Pennsylvania, to evaluate Nick's potential. After a rigorous 13-week course that proved his exceptional skill in detecting contraband, Nick graduated February 15, 2006. He is now a narcotics officer with the Division of Corrections. According to the Division's Mission Statement, "K-9 teams are utilized for contraband and illegal drug interdiction.K-9 Teams are also made available to other Law Enforcement Agencies within the State of West
Virginia." Four representatives of Keystone Rescue attended the graduation ceremony and were treated to a demonstration of Nick's training. He quickly detected contraband and is highly respected for his talents. Keystone Golden Retriever Rescue is proud of Nick and knows he will be successful in his new life as an officer.
Beneficiaries of the April Fund
Donations to the April Fund have enabled the GRF to assist many Rescue groups throughout the country. Today, nearly 100 such groups are working to assure the safety and loving care of homeless Goldens in need of new adoptive homes.
Behind every grant, there is a story of a Golden in need. On this page we will be sharing with you some of the stories of April Fund beneficiaries.
