Thank You!

There are not words adequate to express the gratitude felt for the generous gifts received during GRRCC’s year-end Donate and Decorate Holiday Scene fundraiser. GRRCC’s beautifully decorated Holiday Scene resulting from a record number of 88 donations totaling $11,340 brings to life the saying that a picture is worth a thousand words. To see the final Holiday Scene with the gifts and decorations and the accompanying heartwarming messages means so much as it shows your commitment to and belief in GRRCC’s mission to help Golden Retrievers in need and provide them with the care needed while on their journey to be matched with their perfect forever family.

On behalf of GRRCC, thank you so very much for your compassionate support.
