DVGRR hoping to get lucky

By on July 29, 2015

Delaware Valley Golden Retriever Rescue (DVGRR) is participating in a contest sponsored by HomeAgain®, a lost-pet recovery service that maintains a pet microchip database.ER20150729_DVGRRLogo
The HomeAgain Helps contest features a grand prize of $25,000 plus Merck animal health and technology products. DVGRR is seeking nominations to be considered for one of five finalist positions. Nominations are open until Aug. 14, and can be submitted at www.homeagainhelps.com/nominate.
“Our rescue receives no government funding and relies solely on donations and grants like the HomeAgain Helps contest,” said Robin Adams, DVGRR executive director/founder. “We work tirelessly to rescue goldens, Doodles, and now labs to get them into loving homes. Plus we provide extensive rehabilitation to the puppy mill survivors that enter our care.
“These dogs have typically lived in pretty squalid conditions without much, if any, human interaction. We’re proud to state that the veterinary care we provide is second to none.”
Since its inception more than 20 years ago, DVGRR has rescued more than 4,000 dogs. Its Project Home Life program for puppy-mill survivor rehabilitation has been nationally recognized and used as a model for other rescues to copy.
Nominators are asked how the winning organization should use the prize money.
“We would use the grant prize money toward our Cody Medical Fund that offsets veterinary costs and also to support the senior dogs and puppy mill survivors in our program that reside at The Lynne Glennon Sanctuary for Senior Goldens and Puppy Mill Survivors,” Adams said.
Once five finalists are selected, voters will determine the grand prize winner and four runners up.
