Help us fill the 2025 calendar!

What is it and how the proceeds help?

Annually, the Golden Retriever Rescue of Mid-Florida (GRRMF) crafts a unique calendar available for purchase each autumn. The sales directly fund the medical care of our cherished canines. What makes our calendar extraordinary is the spotlight on our success stories: every featured dog has found a forever home through GRRMF.

Here are some calendar-views of past for inspiration!
