This year's rescue parade was held on June 14, 2014. A Big THANK YOU
goes out to all of our wonderful Long Island Golden Retriever
Rescue families for making this day such a huge success!
The parade was held on the grounds of the St. Johnland Nursing Home
in Kings Park. There were about 30 rescued Golden Retrievers in
The day was slightly overcast and warm and the dogs
and their "people" had a great time. Each family proudly
showed off their rescued Golden Retriever in the Show Ring, while
our esteemed M.C., Bill, told the dog's rescue story. Each LIGRR
dog received a "goodie bag" after completing their turn
in the ring.
The LIGRR volunteers attend numerous Golden Retriever and dog events
annually. The Rescue Parade is far and away our favorite! We get to see "our"
dogs living happily with their Forever Families. We get to "catch up" with our
terrific adopters! It's all about Happy Endings...for us, it doesn't get any
better than that!
A special "Thank You" to all who made donations and purchased LIGRR
merchandise and auction tickets. Your generous financial support is what makes it
possible for us to continue providing LIGRR's needy Golden Retrievers with
medical care and placing them in excellent homes.
It was a great day and we look forward to seeing even more of our LIGRR
families next year. Let's make this a family tradition and make it BIGGER and
BETTER NEXT YEAR!
THANK YOU ALL!!!
