GRRMF COVID- 19 Rescue News

Update: July 12, 2020

We are proud to remain open supporting our communities to provide our rescue services through mid-Florida. We are continuing to monitor the CDC guidelines and the current spike trending in Florida which suspends our in home visits looking for a best time to resume this service for the safety of our volunteers and applicants.

We will be resuming accepting new applications on July 15th.

Thank you for your support of GRRMF as we navigate these uncharted times.

Stay well.

Update: June 23, 2020

We are in the final planning stages to resume accepting new applications for fostering or adopting in the next few weeks.  Additionally we estimate a mid-July resumption of our in-home visits following the CDC guidelines for all or volunteers and applicants.  All of our other rescue services have remained and continue to remain open to servicing our Mid-Florida goldens and people in need.

We continue to monitor the CDC guide lines for their safety recommendations for the needs of our dogs, rescue and the communities we serve. We look forward to the day we can resume our full application processing again.

Update: June 4, 2020

During these difficult times we remain committed to rescuing goldens and golden blends in need and providing them with a secure foster home and the medical care they may require. Several of the goldens currently in our foster program have expensive medical needs that we and our wonderful vets are tending to through this pandemic period.  We continue to accept dogs into our program as owners contact us for help. We also ensure as dogs become eligible for adoption to a matched approved adopter on our waiting list, all parties adhere to the CDC safety protocols to bring our dog and families together for a joyful meet and greet and adoption day. Our Sanctuary dogs are tucked safely in their homes receiving the on-going care our Sanctuary program provides to them.  Our rescue remains open to the dogs and families who need our rescue’s support.

In our adoption application process, we were blessed to have a large number of approved adopters on our waiting list to adopt a golden prior to the pandemic. During the months of March and April, we received an unprecedented amount of applications many of which are currently on hold pending resumption of our home visit process. This process will be resumed when the communities we serve are fully open with the guidance of the CDC and our focus will remain on ensuring the safety of our applicants and volunteers involved in the process. Additionally between our approved adopters waiting list prior to the pandemic, the volume of adoption applications received in March and April and the average amount of rescue dogs we are receiving, under current conditions we estimate the wait time for a dog from our rescue could be 1 year or more at this time.

Due to the above, as of May 4, 2020, we stopped accepting new applications. We regret having to close this one door for the short term this summer.  If you want to seek out adoption at this time, please reach out to shelters or rescues in your area to be that special family who saves the life of a wonderful dog.

We continue to monitor the CDC guide lines for their safety recommendations for the needs of our dogs, rescue and the communities we serve. We look forward to the day we can resume our full application processing again.

Wishing everyone health and better days ahead for all. Stay safe.
