Long Island Golden Retriever Rescue has lost one of its own, and Heaven
has a new Angel. Jan Sauter died peacefully in her sleep following a
bout with cancer.
Jan was a tireless volunteer for LIGRR. She was an integral part of
countless fundraiser events, a transport helper, a foster mom and so, so much
more. She loved the Goldens and would help in any way she was needed.
Unless she had a prior commitment, she never turned us down.
Jan is now over the Rainbow Bridge with her beloved Goldens Teddy, Molly
and Sandy, Too, Tigger and Libby, along with all the wonderful dogs that
came before them.

The adoption process consists of the application, the phone
interview, and a home visit. We have very limited resources for home
visits that are out of state or too far upstate. We do make an effort to
do them but often the wait is quite long and there are times when we are
unable to do them. Please apply to your local rescue as they might be
able to assist you better.
As a matter of policy to protect the
privacy of people involved in all phases of adoption, LIGRR volunteers
do not give out personal phone numbers or email addresses. If you are
contacted by someone from a personal email or phone, please call LIGRR
at 516-578-3803 or email us at
email@example.com to verify they are actually working on our behalf.
