As President of the Golden Retriever Foundation, I want to assure you that the GRF is doing everything possible to help with the tragedy of the Hurricane Harvey in Southeast Texas. We are also in contact with the GRCA-National Rescue Committee and the Golden Retriever Club of America in coordinating the efforts to help those in need.
The GRF has already rushed an emergency check of $4000 to GRASS - Golden Retriever Acres Senior Sanctuary to help with their immediate needs. They are the only rescue organization in Texas with a facility that was flooded.
Today, The Golden Retriever Foundation is setting up a Disaster Relief Collection - Rescue Fund on our website, http://www.goldenretrieverfoundation.org/donate.html Any rescue organization that helps in this disaster relief effort or is affected by the disaster can submit grant requests for reimbursement of money spent in support of the recovery effort. The GRF will cover all expenses within our funding that is allowed.
Resist the urge to send food or items. The senior goldens are on special diets and it is hard to determine exactly what is needed. So monetary gifts go a long way for them to get the exact items they need.
Donate money to the Golden Retriever Foundation’s Disaster Relief Collection - Rescue Fund or donate funds directly to Golden Retriever Acres Senior Sanctuary (GRASS) (see below) via their website at http://www.grass-tx.org/
If you have not seen the photos of FB of the water damage to GRASS, here are a few photos. The water has now receded but the damage was done.
Thank you all for your continued support of the Golden Retriever Foundation.
