As the donations continue to come in, we at GRRMF are beside ourselves with the generosity that has been shown to our rescue by our wonderful donors. We raised over our goal of $60,000 and there are still company matches and checks being processed!
Do you know who you help with your donations on GivingTuesday and throughout the year? Some of the pups were featured during GivingTuesday week and illustrated on our thank you image here.
Read the stories of three special dogs currently in our program who are “work in progress” behaviorally and medically. Read about their successes so far and their special needs of continued care we are able to provide…thanks to you!
Taja, a unique surprise golden hearted dobie who has captured our hearts as she learns good manners and patient behaviors. Taja’s story
There are many, many more. In fact every dog entering our program relies on the generosity of our financial caregivers as well as every volunteer in our organization.
To our donors listed below and those that wanted to stay anonymous – we couldn’t exist without your generous donations.
We truly thank you all from the bottom of our hearts!

We would like to thank all involved during the months of preparation for GivingTuesday.
Thanks to our media team writers who wrote the stories of our GivingTuesday featured dogs. Our GivingTuesday event leader, Mary, who is our fantastic Facebook editor who worked not only night and day for months but also during her vacation time to make sure our Facebook posts were up to date. Our media team coordinator, Judy, who kept the web posts, pages and pictures relevant and organized. Our community outreach lead, Mark, who rolled out our new online donation product and kept the fundraising links on both FB and the web working properly and the guidance provided by our advisor, Carol. It truly takes a village, a village of all volunteers. So many other volunteers throughout our organization providing love and care of our rescue dogs, participated in GivingTuesday to share their passion for the breed we all love.
