Impact and Programs
In 2020 we cared for 261 dogs. Many had significant medical or behavioral challenges to address. We rescued 84 dogs from commercial breeding.
Additionally, we led a coalition of ten rescue groups across the country in an effort to rescue 102 dogs from China, managing both the complicated logistics of rescuing the dogs and the fundraising plan.
Rescue every Golden Retriever and Golden mix in MN, ND, SD, IA, and western WI that we are asked to help.
Rescue as many dogs from commercial breeding throughout the country as possible.
Rescue dogs internationally who have no hope of being saved otherwise.
Internally, our goals are to strengthen our volunteer support and ensure volunteer roles are sustainable to avoid burnout.
