Shameless plug for my favorite non-profit organization, Triad Golden Retriever Rescue out of Greensboro, North Carolina.
Yes, this is a different blog post from what I normally post, but C’MON PEOPLE WE NEED YOUR HELP!
Coming up on Saturday, April 27, we are participating in our largest fundraising event of the year- The Human Race 5k FUN RUN!
Did I mention it is also the Human Race’s 25th anniversary this year?! So big & fun things will be happening.
Our fundraising goal has just been increased to $2,000- can you help us pass that?!
How can you help?

Did we mention your dogs are welcome to walk the 5k with you?!
Where does your donation go?
Vet check ups and procedure (a large portion). Every dog we get in goes through a vet check up to make sure they are up to date on vaccines, etc. If they aren’t microchipped or fixed, they get that done. And in the unfortunate case of a more serious medical issue (heartworm, broken bones, mange, etc), we still cover the cost to get that done! We try to put the best possible effort into our dogs. And yes, I said our dogs because every dog that comes through our organization steals all of our hearts!
Misc fees such as participating at events, or booths, transportation costs, items that the foster homes might need, etc.
And if you’re encourage to do more with us, well dear friend, we are ALWAYS accepting new volunteers! Especially foster homes. The amount of work you put into your volunteer time is UP TO YOU! I’ve been with Triad Golden Retriever Rescue since November of 2017, and although I’ve taken on more responsibilities over time, I didn’t have to I wanted to! Because the outpouring of love and dedication throughout this organization is inspiring!
If you’re on the edge of signing up to become a volunteer with animal rescue, let me plug a few more things in here to sway you 🙂
Does that picture not speak to you?! How about this link?
