‘Tis the season to be giving
This year, DVGRR raised the same amount by noon on Friday, with 12 hours left in the fundraiser. Gifts from donations, plus a share of the pool and prizes was tallied at over $100,000 on Friday night at the Lancaster Marriott.
Robin L. Adams is the executive director and founder of Delaware Valley Golden Retriever Rescue and started Delaware Valley Golden Retriever Rescue in 1984. By 1994, they were incorporated and named a 501(c)(3). In 2000, with the help of donors, Golden Gateway, the kennel property in Reinholds, was purchased. Since its inception, the DVGRR has found homes for over 3,000 displaced or abused Golden Retrievers.
The Extra Ordinary Give is a Lancaster County Community Foundation (LCCF) initiative to raise funds for over 250 local organizations. During a 24-hour period, residents are encouraged to donate to local non-profits and organizations. The LCCF donates an additional $250,000 and distributes it to those participating in The Give.
Adams attributes the positive results to the families all over the country that adopt the golden retrievers from her rescue.
“They know how special our breed is and how much joy their Goldens give their families,” said Adams. “They also know the lengths we go to in order to help these dogs heal. To think that these wonderful creatures are abused, neglected or abandoned drives them to help us make things right.”
The Delaware Valley Golden Retriever Rescue also had a donor, The Hobie Fund at the Philadelphia Foundation, that matched up to $25,000.
“This will allow us to get blood test analysis equipment,” explained Adams. “We will also use this to help build an addition to our BARK Hospital to house digital X-ray equipment and also to help with renovations for the Lynne Glennon Sanctuary for Puppy Mill Survivors and Senior Goldens that we will move into in December.”
