Canine Volunteers

Pay it forward

GRRMF would like to recognize our four-legged alums and their families who are giving back to their communities by lifting spirits and generating smiles as a dog handler/therapy team; visiting nursing homes, hospitals and hospice, participating in reading programs at their local schools and libraries providing motivation for children to become better readers; and helping to raise funds and develop educational awareness. For more information on how you and your golden can participate in these wonderful programs to pay it forward, visit our Certifying Agencies link under our Learn / Training menu.

Also we so appreciate your recognition of GRRMF and the work we do to save these precious lives to enable them to go on and bring happiness to so many others. You are part of the pay it forward team success through your financial support of the dogs in our care. Thank you!
