- Makes Excellent Veterinary Care Possible
Your membership dues and donations benefit our Rescue Goldens by
allowing YGRR to provide the very best, thorough and complete veterinary
care to all our Rescue Goldens. There is no age or health limitation
to the Goldens we admit to our program so long as the dog will have
a good quality of life.
Our routine veterinary care includes spaying/neutering and tattooing
all Rescue Goldens as well as providing all vaccinations and heartworm
testing. Senior Goldens (age eight and older) routinely receive complete
geriatric blood examinations to make sure that they are in good health
before they are adopted.
We also provide extraordinary veterinary care to Rescue Goldens
who need it.
Every year, we undertake the costly treatment to cure Goldens of
heartworm disease which very few animal welfare organizations do.
Every year, we pay for Rescue Goldens to have corrective surgery
for hip dysplasia.
Every year, a high percentage of Rescue Goldens are diagnosed and
treated for low thyroid function.
Every year we provide surgery to correct entropion -- a condition
in which the dog's eyelid rolls in which causes irritation and eye
infections and can threaten the dog's vision.
Every year, we treat Rescue Goldens for epilepsy.
And, from time to time, we have a Rescue Golden who requires really
extraordinary and expensive care such as heart surgery or complicated

- Keeps Our Rescue Goldens Happy, Safe and Secure at Riverview
Your membership dues and donations allow YGRR to operate its home,
Riverview, which provides a safe and serene place for our Rescue Goldens
to await adoption. Rescue Goldens enjoy air conditioned kennels in
the summer and radiant floor heat in the winter. They have large fenced
in play yards and a pool for exercise or therapy in the summer. An
attentive, professional staff, supported by volunteers, makes certain
that each and every Rescue Golden gets the best care, as well as training,
while waiting to be adopted.
We give each of our Rescue Goldens all the time needed to find just
the right home. Some of our Rescue Goldens need to spend months with
us recovering from major surgery or from their previous lives. Your
membership dues and donations allow us to let them stay with YGRR
as long as necessary.
